I have a breech baby which is refuseing to turn and have to have a planned ceserian, was just wondering if anyone knows when i would have it would it be on my due date, before or after??
And has anyone got anything to tell me maybe there experience of a ceserian or breech baby??
Hi there, my DD was a breech baby and I had a section with her at 39+5. The consultant gave me the option of attempting to turn her or have the section at 38+5, I agreed to turn her but then chickened out 2 days before so the section was carried out a week later. In the end DD was too big to be turned so it wouldn't have worked and would have put us both through unnecessary pain and stress. I do not regret havnig a section, I had a great experience which I know isn't the case for everyone but I dont fear it. I'm preg again and going to have another section. Hth
I had a evc at 37 weeks but baby seems to have spun strait back to breech, i go for another scan next week but going to refuse another evc as i didnt like the injection they give it made me feel faint :s
Thanks for ur story hope mine goes as good as urs u make it sound easy lol xx
They will usually perform a planned CS before your due date, I think possibly around a week before your due date?? I had an emergency CS with my first born, which was fine, I had my healthy baby & that was all that mattered. However, I do think that a planned CS is better than an emergency as it's a more calm atmosphere. Don't worry I'm sure it'll be fine. You'll be admitted onto the labour ward & then taken through to the theatre, (they usually tell you morning or afternoon time), but sometimes if there's an emergency you could be told you'd have to wait until that's done, but think that's not often, just something to bear in mind. Anyway, you should then be given a spinal in the anaesthetic room, then into theatre where they'll perform the CS. If all's well, you should have your baby with you & go onto the postnatal ward when you're obs are all ok. The recovery time is obviously usually longer than a vaginal delivery, but I think as long as you start moving as soon as possible it gets easier every day,plus you have regular pain killers.
Breech babies CAN turn on their own in the last couple of weeks, but with a scheduled early section it doesn't get the chance. have a look at spinningbabies.com for some ways to try to turn it yourself. You also don't have to have a section for breech, it is perfectly possible to birth a breech baby vaginally if you want to and not have to go through surgery. Have you asked your OB about this possibility? I've read a lot of stories recently about natural breech birth and none as scary as you'd think. Here's a nice one: http://birthwithoutfearblog.com/2011...-breech-birth/ Good luck!
