Elective section


Last time I ended up with an emergency section, this time I'm planning on opting for an elective section, usually how long before due date do they admit you?

My OB starts at 39, absolutely nothing sooner without a medical emergency, and requires by 40. I had an EMCS, failed VBAC/RCS, and this is my first ELCS. It's supposed to be at 39+4.

It's usually 39 weeks, to give the baby's lungs time to develop. I had two of my elective caesareans at 38 weeks though due to anxiety X

I had Sophie by elective at 39+2. Emma was booked in for 39+0 but there was some sort of scheduling error so it was changed to 38+6 at the last minute.

I was told between 39 and 40 weeks. I'm hoping for it to be as near to 40 weeks as possible to let baby fully develop

I was booked in at 39 weeks but my waters went at 38+1. They told me I was to have steroids for little ones lungs but contractions started so was taken down for a "quick but still elective" section. x
