EBIS: The Eindhoven Breech Intervention Study
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether successful external cephalic version is associated with maternal thyroid function and mood state in pregnant women with breech presentation at term.
The relationship between successful external cephalic version and neonatal thyroid function will also be investigated.
A possible beneficial effect of successful external cephalic version on the development of congenital hip dysplasia will be evaluated.
