Im in the same boat currently.

I'm waiting to see the midwife at my booking in appointment before I get panicky but I had a hideous labour with my son - botched induction, back to back, shoulder dystocia, heart rate dropped, episiotomy, ventous, blood transfusions, catheter for 6 weeks post birth - you name it, I got had it.

I was told by the consultant last time that I would need a csection for subsequent children as the dystocia risk is so high.

My city however are very pushy on vaginal births apparently so I don't know what to do. I think I'd like to give it another go vaginally but realistically I think I'm looking at a section. It's just weather the midwife agrees I guess.

I see her 23rd of June so we shall see.

If you are set that a section is the route you want to take, then go for it, tell them that's what you want and don't take no for an answer. Whilst I've not had one personally, I know a lot of people that have had successful sections x

I would think that the episiotomy concerns would be more than enough grounds for you to get the section. If it's been well documented that your healing was not good and would be compromised by a further episiotomy then that should be all that you need.

If I were in your shoes, I'd defo be looking at the section, putting strain on an area that already has issues doesn't sound like a good thing to do imo. I'm interested to see what they say to you, could you update this thread if poss? I hope it goes your way x

I had a similar first delivery, had forceps and an episiotomy that took a long time to heal and was left quite traumatised by it all too. I've not thought too much about it in this pregnancy as yet as I've a low lying placenta so may need a section anyway so I've put it out of my mind for the time being as it may be that I don't need to make that decision! If my placenta has moved then I'll be in the same position as you in trying to decide between vaginal or section. I think both have their pros and cons and I'm sure your mw will be up for discussing both options with you. I think it just comes down to preference in this situation, you have to do what is best for you.

Fire fly - all of us with babies due in January have a secret Facebook group - would you like to join?

Elective c - section is the route I'm taking and I WILL NOT take no for an answer and my mis wife will get that at the first appointment. I had a 50+ hour labour, it was awful, I tore, lost a lot of blood that's I shouldn't have, and was smacked in the face with severe postnatal depression as a result of the whole thing and I absolutely will not go through that again. So I'm not going to give anyone an option. It's your right as a UK citizen to request an elective c section and although they will try and push you not too, they can't force you!
