  • Why did the doctor say he was going to do a C-Section?

  • I would think if everything is normal otherwise, it is your choice. Good luck. I have to agree with the last poster...that epidural was a big relief to me. But if you are strong and healthy and this is what you want; I'd let the doctor know. Maybe he has a specific reason for suggesting it.

  • They don't let you drink water. You eat ice, and even that they won't let you have too much of. If there are complications you could throw up and aspirate it. Then you would be in even more trouble.
    Your best bet would be to use a midwife. No IV, no meds, and you can eat and drink when you want. Good luck.

  • Don't be ignorant. If a doctor tells you that you need a c-section it is because your life or the life of your baby is at risk. Sure, you can tell them you don't want it, but at what risk?
