My PCT wouldn't entertain me having an elective c-section for this point of yours! My agruments for wanting to consider it with madden where:
  • I was an 8lb 10 breech baby born by c sect
  • babys father was 10lb 9
  • i firmally believe planned c-sections are easier to recover from
  • i have a small pelvis

I'm lucky in that they were able to deliver madden with the help of ventouse as he was stuck and at 9lb 6 I'm not surprised he did! But had they not I'd of have an EMCS which I would of struggled to mentally cope with.

I'll be fighting harder next time to have an elective c-section based on maddens birth

I had an emcs due to fetal distress, would do it again if necessary, but I would choose a vbac if at all possible.

It'll be another c-section for me. I had an emcs due to failed induction and was told that my LO would never have been born naturally

I was the same - my son was 9lbs 12.5oz with a 15cm head. No way I was birthing him naturally even though I wanted to. Failure to progress after 30+ hours of my water being broke and a week of contractions ended up with a c-section. Wouldn't do it anyother way. I tried my best to do it naturally and had to have a c-section because of factors out of my control. Whole experience was lovely but I want to try VBAC... however I've heard uterine eruptions are a serious factor for women who have had C-Sections. They happen to 1 out of 100 women... We'll just have to see how I feel when we get pregnant again.

No - I chose a VBAC and they would of had to drag me into theatre screaming for me to have another section. I hated it and i hated the recovery. I hated the fact that i couldn't pick up my baby every time i wanted to etc.

Had the advice been that i had to have one then obviously i would of done but i wanted to give it every chance possible for me to have a natural labour and birth. I did have a VBAC and it was a total breeze compared to my section - even though both labours were fairly comparable length wise.

I am definitely electing for a c-section again. I was in labor for 12 hours and my son's oxygen levels were dipping so they needed to get him out. The recovery for me was easy and now that I know what labor pains are like (terrible), I don't feel the need to have a vaginal delivery. I was terrified at the thought of pushing! If I had to have an elective c-section with my son then I most likely would have tried for a vaginal when we have #2 but I think because I experienced my water breaking/labor, then I'm ok with a c-section next time

I had an emergency cesarean section this last time, and I really do not want another! My Doctor is all for a VBAC next time. He was planning on turning LO if i made it to 36 weeks to prevent needing a cesarean, but I didn't.

I believe the statistic for uterine rupture is 0.5% - lower than the risk of other problems like cord prolapse and shoulder dystocia.

I'd never have another c-section unless I absolutely had to - the recovery was too painful, I didn't bond well with LO and ended up with PND.
