Here is an article that really struck me - it seems that the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada has *now* decided that C-sections should no longer be the primary option for breech births. In fact, they strongly suggest that women should have the option of a vaginal breech birth, and are now implementing a nation-wide program to educate all OBGYNS in vaginal breech birth.

I know that breech birth has long been something that midwives have expertise in. The thing is, I've heard midwives are becoming less likely to attempt breech births because of the idea that's been circulated that breech births are the "domain" of OBGYNs.
My question is: are similar acknowledgments (that vaginal breech birth should be attempted) being made by governing bodies in the USA? Or is this recent switch only happening in Canada?
