I had an amazing visit with my midwife yesterday, had a really good talk about things and heard baby's heartbeat. I've also started feeling baby's movements and little kicks, and it's all suddenly feeling real and I can't stop smiling.... However... Now that it's really hit me I'm having a 2nd little baba I am so nervous about the birth. Midwife has said I won't be allowed an elective c-section because I dilated with my 1st. But it was such a traumatic labour, he came 6 weeks early, I was in labour for 70 hours, as they prepared me for a c-section DS's heartbeat stopped and before I knew what was happening I was knocked out with a general anaesthetic. Didn't see DS for 5 hours after he was born cause he was rushed to neonatal unit and I was in recovery.... I can't go through this again!! :/ Midwife has said she'll refer me for some counselling so I can talk about this and she's said what we can do is write in my birth plan a cut-off point, i.e if I am in labour for more than 12 hours without much progression they'll do a c-section, but I'm still really scared. Anyone else been through this? Or had a successful natural birth after a c-section?
