Such was the case for Claudia Aparecida Lopes, 30 years old, and her husband, Alexandro Donizete Alves, 23 years old, of Brazil, as they eagerly awaited the birth of their child. They already knew the answers to some of the questions: local obstetricians in Brazil had told them that their baby was a boy and that he could not be delivered vaginally, because he was “sitting down” according to the baby’s father. This likely meant he was in a frank breech position, and while the possibility of vaginal birth exists, the odds of complications for both mother and child increase dramatically. When the baby failed to turn into a head-down position, as was shown to the couple by ultrasound, doctors decided to proceed with a Cesarean birth when the baby boy was due. After months of anticipation, that day came. Blood work and previous ultrasounds had revealed the baby boy was perfectly healthy and they would be experiencing the joy of a healthy son soon.
