10 mechanisms of upright physiological breech birth:
1. Buttocks/feet emerge sacrum-transverse
2. Body restitutes to sacrum-anterior as trunk is born
3. Legs release spontaneously
4. Chest crease ("cleavage”) means arms are not behind head
5. Baby does tummy crunches to release arms & flex head
6. Arms release spontaneously
7. Full perineum = head is flexed
8. Head releases spontaneously
9. Baby passed to mother
10. Cord remains intact even if resuscitation is needed

During these 10 steps, the maternal pelvis is mobile, flexible, & upright.
