Ina May in the Media!

Elinor Carucci/Redux, for The New York Times  
This is a long whopper of an article, so I recommend reading it when you have a moment to concentrate, but some highlights especially worth noting on Ina's suggestion that breech doesn't automatically equal c-section. Breech deliveries can be performed safely, as it has been done with the laboring mother pictured above. The Farm midwives still perform breech deliveries on a daily basis, but most doctors and a lot of traditional midwives will not attempt it. A breech baby doesn't mean you need to give up on your goal of a natural birth. This is a great read.
