Face Presentation Vaginal Birth

by Birth Without Fear on June 4, 2011

Babies really can come out different ways. My last baby was birthed facing my left thigh. Yes, I birthed him sideways, shoulders and all.

A friend of mine recently gave birth to her sweet baby girl. Not only did she have a successful VBAC in the hospital, but her daughter was birthed with a face presentation (yes, her face was birthed first) weighing 8 lbs 1 oz! This is with a mentum anterior delivery of the chin.

Look at her little tongue between her squishy lips. Inspiring!
