In many cases of breech presentation, a trial of labor is practical and safe among carefully selected parturients. Anesthesia and full neonatal support should be available. Described is the protocol in use at several large institutions that maintain a Cesarean rate for breech presentation in the 60 to 70 per cent range which is approximately 25 per cent lower than the national rate. The development of this protocol as well as its highlights in clinical application are described and highlighted in this report.
