The OptiBreech Multiple Trial Database collects detailed information about the pregnancy, labour and post-birth experiences of women with a breech-presenting baby.

We designed this database in collaboration with women, who told us what information would help them make more confident decisions, and health care professionals who provide their care. All personal-identifiable information is stored separately and securely, so participants are never able to be identified in any study reports.

Within the study, some women are randomised (allocated by chance) to be offered new treatments that have potential to improve care or experience, if people have consented to randomisation. Importantly, in the OptiBreech Trials, the decision of what care to accept always remains with the pregnant person.
