You get taken in a week early and section you. Where im from you get a choice if you want elective after a section. I was determined for a vbac. But as it got closer my baby stopped moving and I was worried so when they asked me again I opted for elective. Turns out I just had a big baby in there. So unfortunately I dont have a choice third time. Its automatic section now. I felt quite sad to begin with that I wil neverexperience childbirth and hav never had a labour pain but my second section was such a positive experience I dont mind any more. I even got the screen lowered to see baby coming out so I felt like I had gave birth x
you can have what is called a vbac. which is virginal (sp) birth after c section. Im hoping for one this time. Your options will be discussed when your pregnant. I have been told its an option for me. There are risks of a scar rupture but the risk is lower than a risk from having a section. you cant get over due now nor can you be induced. my options are either to have a section at 39 weeks or from 38 weeks will have sweeps then if possible at 40 weeks my waters broken. if that dont work then it would be a section. I get a scan at 36 weeks to see position of baby. But as someone above said a planned section is a lot nicer than a emergency one. Mine was planned as kacey was breach. i new the day i would have her and it was very calm. i recovered very quick to
I am hoping for a VBAC next time, and in most places they will let you go the normal 2 weeks overdue, they just don't like to induce you and they pretty much definitely don;t put you on the oxytocin drip, so you will normally have a section planned for around 2weeks over. Apparently 80% of people who opt for a VBAC will deliver vaginally but only something like 25-30% of people opt to try! I will be definitely trying!
