Do contractions hurt more/feel different after a c-section?
I planned to have a home birth but ended up with an emergency c-section with my son. I did hypnobirthing so my contractions were, for the most part, manageable. I reached fully dilated at home but baby hyper-extended his neck and couldn't come out (tried to come out face first!). I'm not pregnant again yet but I'm planning ahead and trying to decide whether to try for a HBAC (Home Birth After Ceasarean) next time and one thing I'm interested in knowing is whether the contractions will feel different and whether they will hurt more.
Me too! I was prepared (or unprepared) for an all natural birth, thought I would be able to use breathing techniques & Yoga positions to control the pain...I feel so silly to say that now! I ended up having lots of pain relief and then had to have an emergency C-section
I cant wait to get pregnant again but the thought of trying to do it naturally really scares me!
Would be great to hear from others!!
I had all my contractions in my back - do following labours follow suit does anyone know?
Would my next labour have all contractions in my back?
Every pregnancy labour and birth is different, was your first baby posterior (back to back)? That can give you a lot of contraction pain in your back...or it may have been how you were positioned - were you on your back a lot?
