See breech.   In this technique (BMM) the leg, the trunk and the shoulders are delivered, remaining the head. The head is allowed to hang until the hair line shows. The feet is then grasped and with gentle traction it is swept over the mothers abdomen. This usually leads to delivery of the head. If problems occur at the delivery of the head the air passages are aspirated quickly in order to prevent asphyxia.
