Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but wondered if anyone has ever been induced after a previous section or are hoping for this, this time around? I had an emergency c section under GA with my son after getting to 10cms (undiagnosed breech), and also had to spend 14 days in hospital afterwards due to being very poorly. Right from the word go, Ive said it will be another c section this time round. I would love to go for a VBAC, but I need to be in control this time, as all sense of control was taken away from me last time. Not being in control again terrifies me. Now the more i'm thinking about it, the more im wondering about being induced. I really do not want to go through another section... the horrible recovery, the risk of being ill again afterwards, having to look after two children after, the stay in hospital etc. But like I said, I just need to be in control, and if thats by having a planned c section, then so be it. But im thinking... what about being booked in for an induction... say at 39 weeks? Then, I would know a set time and date, they could scan me to check the position of the baby, and at least I would have a chance of having a VBAC, and potentially being allowed home the day after. When I had my son, the hospital was literally only 5 minutes in the car away. But now, they have moved the hospital to 45 minutes away, and this is the main reason why I want it to be controlled. If I was to go into labour spontaneously... then have to wait for someone to come get my son, then get to the hospital, it could all be too late. I went from 0-8cms within 2 hours with my little boy, and of course he was undiagnosed breech, so it was really touch and go. I am seeing my new consultant on thursday so im going to ask him all about this, i just wondered if anyone has been booked in for an induction (not going overdue), after a previous c section? Do they even do this? PS - ive looked at the NICE guidelines for induction, and it says this... "Previous caesarean section 126.96.36.199 If delivery is indicated, women who have had a previous caesarean section may be offered induction of labour with vaginal PGE26, caesarean section or expectant management on an individual basis, taking into account the woman’s circumstances and wishes. Women should be informed of the following risks with induction of labour: • increased risk of need for emergency caesarean section during induced labour • increased risk of uterine rupture." anyone know exactly what this means?
