Types of breech presentation – Complete, Incomplete and Frank


Types Of Breech Presentation Complete Incomplete Frank

breech presentation is when the fetus presents buttocks or feet first (rather than head first – a cephalic presentation). It has significant implications in terms of delivery – especially if it occurs at term (>37 weeks).

There are three types of breech presentation: complete, incomplete, and frank.

Complete breech

A complete breech is when both of the baby’s knees are bent and his feet and bottom are closest to the birth canal.

Incomplete breech

An Incomplete breech is when one of the baby’s knees is bent and his foot and bottom are closest to the birth canal.

Frank breech

Frank breech is when the baby’s legs are folded flat up against his head and his bottom is closest to the birth canal.

There is also footling breech where one or both feet are presenting.

  1. Interesting! I never knew this! I feel like me daughter was in the frank breech position which makes sense, because I would always feel kicks at the top of my belly. ♥️
