This is a really long story so I'll keep it short, I had an emergency c-section after 23 hours of really hard labor. I was devistated that I couldnt give birth to my son. Well now I have a 2nd c-section scheduled for 4/13/09, and I'm having 2nd thoughts. I don't want to go through the depression I went through the first time, and I just feel like I'm suppose to try. But what if trying causes 23 hours of labor and then an emergency c-section again?? Will I be more devistated then the first time?? I'm going crazy trying to figure this all out!!!Answer Question

I was devistated that I couldnt give birth to my son.
Um.................not quite getting this part of the OP. You DID give birth to your son - right? He's not still IN there? Maybe I'm just a simple girl, but if the baby comes out, you gave birth. What about trying to get over yourself and concentrating on the end result?
As for switching doctors/hospitals - that's your right as a medical consumer. Having a doc that understands what you are trying for is important. But is it more important to have a vaginal birth or to have a healthy baby? I would say get a second opinion from a pro-VBAC doc and if they say, nope, going C-section, then just accept it, get ready for your new addition and concentrate on the positive.
