How would you feel if you were told you could never push out another baby - you had to have C-sections always?

Because of a risk of tearing (again) that they may not be able to fully repair.

  • Hell I would just love to be able to carry another baby who cares how it comes out! I can not carry another baby and was told I would never make it anywhere near my due date. And each child would come earlier and last was born at 26 weeks....So just Thank God you can have kids and don't worry about how they come out.

  • I'd go w/a C-section then. I tore really really bad, so I'm debating on if I want a C-section with my next baby or just do vaginal again.

  • I've had all 3 of my kids Csection. First was an emergency and the last 2 were repeat. I don't feel bad about not delivering them "naturally". Doesn't effect me at all. And No, I don't think I missed the expierience of vaginal delivery at all either. IMO.

  • I'd risk tearing.

  • I would get a second opinion and make an informed decision!

  • I'd have a c-section then. It's not like you can't have kids any more.

  • I do not know I had 3 and soon to have the 4 and I do not want a C section and they are telling me now I'm may have to get one. Bu if I do not and want to have more kids then I would just have to get the Csection, But I do not think we need more so I who not do it cause I LOVE VAGINAL DELIVERY.

  • Woudn't care... I'm NOT having more! If I was, I'd just have a C-section... no big!

  • I had a vaginal then a c-section, either way you have a BABY at the end, so just go with it.

  • It depends how you feel about it. I would definitely go for a second opinion maybe even a third if it were me. For me, having a c-section was terrible and I'm going for a VBAC this time. I know it's not quite the same thing but I really wouldn't wish a c-section on anyone.
