cheers me dear!

Here we go,

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17877673

RESULTS:

Compared with women who delivered vaginally in their first birth, women who underwent a caesarean delivery were, during their second delivery, at increased risk of uterine rupture (adjusted OR 41.79; 95% CI 29.73-57.00). Induction of labour, high (> or = 4000 g) birthweight, postterm (> or = 42 weeks) births, high (> or = 35 years) maternal age, and short (< or = 164 cm) maternal stature were also associated with increased risk of uterine rupture. Uterine rupture was associated with a substantially increased risk in neonatal mortality (adjusted OR 65.62; 95% CI 32.60-132.08)
So in list form things that can increase UR chance:
  • Induction of labour
  • high (> or = 4000 g) birthweight
  • postterm (> or = 42 weeks) births
  • high (> or = 35 years) maternal age
  • short (< or = 164 cm) maternal stature
I like to look at it that not having these means I have a lower risk of UR. I'm declining induction, I'm 31, I'm 5'8" (which I don't know in cm but I believe is higher than 164cm). So the only added risk factors I could end up with (according to this study) are post term and high birth weight.

This is such a great thread. The info is really helpful. I have only made it through about half of the links on the first page and so far I am impressed! Thank you for making it!

Celesse, thank you so much for posting your plan. It was very informative for me and may steal bits as well!

Smile and nod, thank them for their input then make your own choices.

Don't be discouraged by them. As much as we know our rights it's difficult not to walk away from some appointments feeling angry or upset.

I had an EMSC without an pre-pain relief, and had a spinal. It was less than 30mins from being told I needed it and being cut open... So dont worry about that!

I love this thread! Xx
