Five weeks before her due date, a Washington State mother learns from her out-of-hospital midwives that they will be unable to care for her because her baby is breech. A decision to drive to Oregon, where midwives can assist breech births at home is made, but baby has other plans. In the end, the couple’s Oregon midwife assists via phone and Bruno is born butt-first at home, into his mother’s hands.
