Breech updates

A busy semester has kept me from finishing the summaries of the Amsterdam Breech Conference. Please be patient--I'll get them done eventually!

Starting this January, Eric and I are both taking a semester's unpaid leave so I can work on several breech projects. We'll be moving back to Nice so I'll be in closer proximity to my primary collaborator, Shawn Walker.

I just submitted an IRB proposal to study what helps and what hinders vaginal breech in American hospitals. I'll be interviewing maternity care providers, associated health care providers who are present during breech births (such as L&D nurses, pediatricians, and anesthesiologists), and hospital administrators.
