Hi ladies So I've request to have a elected c section this time because with my last pregnancy the labour and birth was just so traumatic. I was induced at 35+4 due to pre eclampsia and cholestasis of pregnancy. I hemorrhaged after giving birth and my placenta came away in tiny pieces (due to the pre eclampsia and cholestasis) and I was rushed to theatre where I was told I wud have to have a full hysterectomy if they cudnt stop the bleeding. I remember going in and out of consciousness and the pain was excruciating until they put me to sleep. I ended up staying in hospital for a week because I ended up getting a sever kidney infection and my DD was in SCBU for 16 days. It was all very scary. Anyway I was diognosed with cholestasis of pregnancy again with this pregnancy but I was diognosed at just 17 weeks. I was put on medication but have been told this baby will be early and I will be induced again . So I've requested to have an elective c section this time because I really am terrified of doing it naturally with all the trauma I had last time. Esp since aging I have cholestasis so it's highly high risk I will hemorrhage again. Ive only ever given birth naturally and have never had a c section and was wondering if any you have had a similar experience to me and opted for a c section and how it went? I just feel this time I wud like to be in a more controlled situation and I think I wud feel safer for me and my baby have a section. Any advice wud be great.
