Any delivery in the emergency department is considered a precipitous birth and is an anxiety-producing event. Many deliveries proceed without incident. However, the emergency physician must be prepared for several dreaded scenarios, such as nuchal cord, shoulder dystocia, and breech birth. This article reviews the basics, complications, and management of such deliveries.
