True breech: posterior presentation, dorsosacral position, both limbs retained at the hips.
Roberts SJ (1986)
The first steps in the correction of a true breech are to repel the fetus anteriorly and upwards, and to retrieve a hock.
The second maneuver is to push the hock laterally and forwards which aids in bringing the fetlock medially.
A chain or rope can then be placed on the foot to pull it medially while repelling the hock laterally.
Final extension of the first leg. The procedure is repeated for the second leg, which should be relatively easier because there is more room to maneuver.
