  • I understand how you feel. I'm having a scheduled C section. I'm not trying a VBAC. I'm a terrible mother, I know.

  • I was an induced baby.
    I was suppose to be a halloween baby finally in mid november the doctor said enough time had passed and she got induced and all was fine.
    To me one method is not greater than the next it is based off the person and the babies health.

  • Must add to those that are negative to it..
    Each person's birth is there own and nobody should tell them otherwise....

    Blainesmommy03,having a c-section makes you no less of a mother than those that vbac..infact, stronger since you must go through surgery:>)

    Fuck. It's simple. If you don't like the answers, stop asking.

    Natural induction methods wont work, and there is nothing wrong with saying "hang in there, the baby will come when ready". Seriously, aren't there more important things to worry about then getting frustrated over someone elses response to a question?

    The reasons why people don't respond positively is because inductions are selfishly motivated. Some people feel that the babies health is more important than the mother's discomfort.

    I think women who want to try irresponsible methods such as Castor Oil need to be told of the negative effects it may have because many do not know, and if those women chose not to take the advice of those against it, it's her choice, but she should be prepared for varying opinions on a public forum.

  • Wow, selfish reasons? I would say my scheduled induction at 38 weeks is hardly selfish. my daughter should have cerebral palsy or be dead after getting her shoulders stuck in my pelvis because they were to large. I would say inducing early so that my baby has a fighting shot at sliding through my vagina without brain damage is resposible, not selfish. But excuse me for not letting nature take it's course and kill me or my child. In 90% of pregnancies I fully believe that a woman's body will do exactly what it needs to when it needs to to have a healthy baby and wonderful delivery. However, how dare you make the rest of us who have extenuating circumstances feel bad about intervening on behalf of our babies AT THE SUGGESTION OF A LICENCESED PROFFESIONAL WHO KNOWS WHAT THE HECK THEY ARE TALKING AOUBT? It is fine to have an opinion. It is never okay to make a mother feel inadequate or bullied because you don't like what she does.
