Breech birth c-section complications

I have a contemporary setting in a US city. My character gives birth to a breech baby who dies after several months.

Most of the deaths resulting from breech births have been corrected by doctors switching to c-sections in nearly every case. I've googled lots of stuff about breech births and complications, but I haven't encountered anything from a c-section breech birth that would cause death a few months later (rather than within a day or two of birth).

I could always have the baby die by SIDS, but I'd prefer it be related to the birth.
