What kind of breech? Is this your first child? Can you find a
midwife/doctor who's experienced delivering breech babies?

I have asked my midwife about possible breech deliveries and she doesn't
recommend c-section. She works in a hospital and does homebirths as
well, but for breech she'd have me come into hospital and she'd find a
doc who's experienced with breech deliveries and we'd go that way then.
This is my second baby though, and my first had a kind of big head (36cm
circumference, that's 14.17 inches), so that might be a factor. But she
also says that most babies know what they're doing when they present
"bottom down". (Some babies bottoms are just bigger than their heads.)

The head is up and facing out. The problem is that the fluid is
leaking and he does not feel its safe to try and turn the baby. This
is my 3rd child the other 2 were vaginal births. I am more worried
that I am loosing the fluid and that i will go into labor and have to
be rushed into a c section. The idea has always scared me that I would
have to have a csection.

As far as I know it's more important whether the baby's feet down or
bitt down. Turning around to face another way (back/front) can still
happen during the birth.
What was the recommendation regarding the leak? Bedrest? Anything? I
have very little knowledge about leaking amniotic fluid so I'm afraid
I'm not a great help there :-/
But I know about the fear of c-section. I just keep telling myself that
if it comes to that I'll just have to deal with it and there's going to
be a baby at the end of it all and I'll even get to take it home. When
all's said and done the how isn't as important, the important part is
that baby and mom are ok in the end.
Doesn't make the prospect of having to have a c-section any more fun,
but for me it helps if I can focus on the "after" instead of the
"during" part of things.
