I'm due in April with a baby that may have some problems with her heart. Her pulmonary artery is a little small and twisted, She has enlarged echogenic kidneys and a single umbilical artery.
I has a c-section with my last DD but looking back it was pretty much a c-section of convenience and not really an emergency (just take my word for it). I have been approved for a VBAC and really REALLY don't want to have another C/S if I can avoid it.
I'm afraid with all these things "wrong" with the baby that she might not tolerate labor well and I'll end up with another unplanned c-section which for me, would be more traumatic than a planned C/S.
I want to do what is best for my baby. There is nothing noble in my wanting an all natural birth, it is purely driven out of fear of a repeat C/S.
So what would you do in my situation? Half my doctors say not to worry, the others have been trying to bully me in to a repeat from day one.
