  • There isn't anything that you can do for a narrow cervix but it seems a little premature for your doctor to start talking about c-section.

    I wouldn't opt for a c-section unless I had progressed during labor and THEN they determined that baby would be in distress if they didn't do a c-section. Too many doctors will jump on the c-section bandwagon when it's not medically necessary. It is surgery after all, not just a part of nature.

  • I have never heard of this but I would assume that you could try vaginally and then if the baby doesn't progress get the c section. That is what happened to me, my daughter decided she wanted to flip in the birth canal while I was pushing and she got stuck...

  • *In* labor your cervix will adjust.
    It dilates and effaces, "melts" back behind baby, doesn't just "stretch."

    What kind of a birth do you want?

  • Sounds like you need to make your wishes clear to your medical provider... Wanting to have your child vaginally, without surgical intervention unless medically necessary IS a wonderfully valid choice.

  • Women have been giving birth for years without all the c sections they do thaws days. If your baby isn't in danger, I say trust your body to do what it's built to do!
