I hve one ds.
I got oc towards the end of preg
And had to be induced.
It took two days.
Ds was stuck and they didn't notice
And labour didn't progress
He had a stroke
And now has cerebral palsy, epilepsy and autism.
This time round I'm thinking to push for c section
I don't hve cholestatsis yet.
But high chance of it again.
Plus the getting stuck was prob cos I've tilted uterus.
All risks still the same.
So I'm looking for advice
C section vs induction.
I will obvs talk to my Drs
But I haven't met them yet
I want things clear in my own head before I do
Thanks in advance guys xxx
I am coming into terms with having a 3rd c section, but a healthy me and baby is a priority (alive and well).
I wanted a vbac2 so much, but just had a talk with my doctor, and she said just last week there were 3!!! uterine raptures in my city. It's a lot.
1 baby died, mother didn't die only because the baby wa stuck in a rapture and prevented blood loss into belly cavity.
2 are ok, but mothers lost uterus.
Last year two mothers died.
I think, if there is even a one percent chance something will go wrong.... Do not take the risks.
It's good to hear other peoples thoughts too.
It's hard for me to know if I'm making a rational decision or knee jerk
I'm really leaning towards c section
But its the longer recovery id be afraid of
My ds is very heavy and can't walk.
Id hate not being able to pick him up
But its only a few weeks.
If its safer for bub
Its what I will do.
My Oh will be taking a few weeks off after birth either way.
I'm def thinking more section
I'm afraid if induced, like u
Id end up with section amywa
Then u hve recovery of both.
Hope ur recovery goes really well this tine too hon
Thanks for your help xx
I also agree with c section. I just had an emcs because my baby was stuck and I personally wouldn't do a vaginal birth for future babies. Recovery has been very hard on me but I hear it's easier when planned. I pushed for almost five hours so that took a toll. Best of luck
My first got stuck. I am having an elective section this time around. In two days infact.
I would never, ever go through an induction again and risk another baby being hurt in the process. She looked like she'd been in a car crash by the time she came out and we both have long term effects, which may or may not be related, in reality I'll never know
Recovery will be tough but my husband has taken 3 weeks pat leave, and mums got one week holiday after that to help with my eldest.
