What are the following for breech presentation:

a. Frank breech
b. complete breech
c. incomplete breech
d. double-footling breech?


incomplete breech


frank breech - hips flexed, legs extended at the knee
flexed breech - also called complete - both legs flexed at hip and knee
footling breech - at least one leg presents below the breech ;this type of breech presentation carries the greatest risk of cord prolapse
