Worried if they will do 3rd section


Hi ladies I had an emcs in 2000 as baby was too big I'm 4"11, had elective in 2001. My question is I'm due again July 2013 and would like to have a c section I have consultants appointment on Thursday to discuss. Is he likely to allow one or am I going to have to fight for it reason being the midwife on 2 nd pregnancy made a big deal of the fact they wouldn't allow it I spent weeks worrying and they said yes straight away and this time my midwife only made the comment that VBAC is an option?
Any advice would be great

Hi Hun I have had 2 sections 1 in 1999 and one in 2002 .... Yes you do have an option to vbac but you also have an option to have an elective c section. So no need to worry we are ttc and have already spoken to my consultant and its either or xx

As pp said you'll be given the option of both vbac or section, they may push for a section (this is what my HV told me), but you're able to have a section if you'd prefer after already having a section.

I just had my third on Thursday. I wasn't asked about vbac. But the option of a third section was no prob and recovery so far has been brilliant - walked a few steps after 6 hours, showered alone and walked more after 24 hrs. Today, Saturday, I even forgot to take my Painkillers all morning!

It depends on the hospitals policy. Where I am they don't allow Vbac after 2 c-sections. They say it is too risky. So as a result of them failing to allow me to try vbac I will be having my 6th (Yes, 6th) c-section in May. Worried about it already even though I have 15 weeks to go but I am sure you will be offered a 3rd section due to having had 2 already.

Depends on the hospitals policy. I wasn't allowed to have a vbac and now I'm going to have my 3rd c-section in 6 days.

Congrats on your pregnancy.

Since this is a third c-section you shouldn't get any fight back. Here in my state there are no docs even willing to do a vba2c.
