  • Try naturally. Look into a "natural birth group" on here for advice/ideas. C-sections SUCK.

  • If you doctor thinks it is safer then i would do it! I had a emergency c-section because i had preeclapsia and my sons heart rate was to low.

  • If you need a second opinion ask another doctor. I've had two c sections and haven't had any problems.

  • Can't really give an honest opinion because I don't know all your medical conditions (nor am I a doc to know how to properly evaluate them).

    I can't imagine someone electing to have a c-section for no reason, but if there's a medical necessity don't let anyone tell you it's not "real birth" or anything silly like that.

  • with my first pregnancy...i was in labor for 17 hours and nothing....after waiting that long I asked for a c-section ! ...and it is good I did because they realized my baby was stuck ....I was suppose to have a planned csection with my second, but he ended up being an emergency one as well...I had preeclampsia with both.... and they were both born 4 weeks early...

  • Unless a miracle happens, my son is gonna be born on Jan 12 by c-section... I am overweight, have small non spreading hips and I couldnt dialate... I wish my docs would have scheduled one the first time, because i knew in my heart I would have to have a section... I would go that way... But thats just me

  • My c-section was an emergency after many hours of nonprogressing labor, and it was my second child. My first was born vaginally. I don't know which is better. I think though if your doctor says to plan for a c-section, it might be the best way to avoid unnecessary risks to both yourself and your baby. The most important thing is a healthy baby born to a healthy mama.
