Background : Considering the fact that breech presentation is the most common abnormal presentation, the present paper compares the preparation of those people who had been born with breech and cephalic presentation.
Materials and Methods : In this cross-sectional study we examines 1847 children in primary schools in Zahedan who had been born in 1994-1999 they were selected randomly from three elementary schools in Zahedan. Questionnaires were used to collect information and information about educational preparation of students were gathered using the standard and approved questionnaires by the Education Department of Iran archived in the patients’ profiles. To analyze the data, t-test and χ2 test had been used and p<0.05 was considered significant.
Results : Out of the 1847 examined children , 1446 children (3.78%) were male and 401 ones (7/21%) were female. 1738 patients (94%) had cephalic presentation (evident group) and 109 (6%) had breech presentation (cases). There was a significant statistical difference among the age averages of the mothers with the fetus presentation (p=0.001) and also among the average marks of the educational preparation of students and the fetus presentation (p=0.017) and children born with the breech presentation had higher scores in preparation. There was no significant difference between the mean score of the educational preparation and child delivery method (p=0.13).
Conclusion : This study showed that school preparation scores, regardless of the mode of delivery, in breech presentation are higher than that in cephalic presentation.
