3rd c section?

Anonymous

I've had two c sections and so this would be my 3rd one...my other kids were breech and my water broke at home. Come to find out I have a bicornuate uterus which causes pre term labor and is why my water always broke and why I have breech babies.

Well I'm 32 weeks and this baby is head first. I think I want to go natural. This will be my last baby and I'd like to experience that...

Problem is my doctor may not allow me BuuuT the choice is still mine right?

The choice IS yours. But the challenge is finding a doc who will even do it. I wanted to w my 3rd too but my doc wouldn't. The only one I could find to do it was the college study center, and I wasn't about to be an experiment. Lol. If I was in my home state, I don't think it would have been much an issue. But I wasn't. So I had a 3rd. It was lots harder to get past after than the first 2. If you can find someone then it MAY be ok. But you should also think of the condition of your uterus an the fact you have 2 previous cuts thro it so it may be more risk than anything. Gl

Well honey, I'm going to tell you like my OB told my husband and I. Yes, it is your choice. You are going to have to find a doctor and hospital that will allow you too. Here where I am, most hospitals wont. Antways, OB says, and I quote, "If I was you, and that was my wife, I'd tell her hell no. The risks are greater with each csection. I have had a woman whose bladder ruptured and anothers baby went into her abdomen when her uterus ruptured. But, yes, it is your choice." I opted for csection...and will again. I know there are risks with csection as it is surgery but it is no longer considered MAJOR surgery like it used to be. Just check with the doctor that you choose and check his percentages of successful vbac deliveries!!!

Choose whatever is safest for you and the baby...talk to your doctor soon about your options.

Those horror stories are not substantiated by statistics. There's a lot of support for vbac now.

Op- it's your birth, your baby, and your body. Do a ton of research and don't back down if you choose vbac.

As a doula, I would say find an amazing doctor with experience with vbacs. But if you feel like you're at risk, go with your instincts and get the c-section. It is your choice ultimately so make sure you are informed and empowered. Good luck, mama xxx
