My daughter just has her second. Up to a week before, she was told she would have to have a second c section. Her last Doctor that delivered told her that the only reason most doctors push for a second c section is because once the woman goes into active labor, the doctor has to stay with her the entire time. The risk in either is the 1% range. She ended up having to have a second c section as the baby was showing distress. When they opened her up they found the cord wrapped around his neck twice. Also the Doctor before had caught a tiny part of her bowel in the fatty tissue of her abdomen and left her with massive scar tissue. He fixed all this. He is has told her that she is set to go for VBAC with the next one. With my last birth my doctor wanted to break my water to "move things along" I sat up and said don't you dare I'll rip from here there. Once my water breaks three contractions and the baby is born. cont.

cont. Don't mess with woman who has done this four other times. 15 min. later fully dilated water broke three contractions baby born out with the water. She was jumping around saying I've never seen a more text book birth. Ya think? She was only pushing to induce because she had other plans and didn't want to stick around. So sorry you were late for your party. Anyway what all this comes down to is we are burden if we don't deliver in the time frame of the Doctor. They don't have the patience to wait so they use modern medicine to "move things along" Sorry, but it's better for Mother and child to let things take it's natural course. It has taken nine months for the baby to grow, the baby will come in it's own time. Unless as with my Daughter there extenuating circumstances. Then use all the modern medicine you need but until you need it.
