    Hello Ladies,

    Sorry if i am posting this in the wrong place, i was just looking for some info.

    For those of you who had a C-section or know someone who did, what was the reason for it?

    Thanks :) xx

    Mine was an emergency section because of 'failure to progress', i dilated to 8 cm and got stuck there for 8 hrs before we threw in the towel. My little girl had fairly significant moulding to vouch for the 8 hrs stuck there too.

    aww poor wee girl! I've heard a few people in the birth stories say they went in for their booked C Section and i thought most C Sections were emergencies, how did you feel afterwards? xxx

    I had an emergency section because baby got stuck and distressed so his heartbeat went down from 140 odd to 25 and didnt come back up. They dont mess about when the heartrate goes so low, They do whatever they have to, to get baby out ASAP.

    Thats good to hear hun, my biggest fear is something going wrong at the birth. I'm actually excited about the birth but the thing that scares me is any complications. xxx

    I felt fine after my section, not traumatised or cheated-maybe a little dazed! I was just happy that my baby and i were ok. Ellis's heart rate had started dipping low too. In retrospect i wish i'd had an elective section at 39 weeks, as it was i went 40 +18 and through 36 hours of labour in the hope of a natural birth that wasn't to be. An elective section wasn't an option this time but if i ever have another i'll not be chasing the dream of a natural birth again!!!

    a scan showed she was breech.

    No other option was given as my 2nd daughter was sadly stillborn in 2007 due to being breech and having a long cord, so section was the only option.

    She was 37+4, delivered a bit earlier than normal due to the fact there was no other space in theatre till i was way past 39 weeks.

    The only thing i can say, is take it so easy after, and take all the pain meds they offer.

    I had 2. First was for distress the heartrate dropped very low. Second seemed to be distress also again heartrate dropped really low but when they got to him he was tied up in the cord so badly that he would never have found his way out his heartrate dropped as it was also round his neck.
