The first was an emergency c after 21 hours of labor. Heart rate was dropping and labor was not progressing. He had his umbilical cord around his neck and the cord was wrapped around his body in such a way that he could not get into the birth canal. The second was a planned c...

Emergency c- section.. I was in labor for 10 hours and the doctor broke my water before checking on dd's position. Had another c-section with dd2 due to having had one already and ill be having another one on the 24th of next month with our first boy. 💙

Yes, two of them. 

1- Our dd died in utero at 36 weeks. After 3 days of induction, my body began to shut down and they had to perform and emergency c-section to save my life. During surgery, they found out that due to Kahlan's body beginning to deteriorate inside mine that it had caused a uterine infection that was killing me. 

2- A repeat c-section. I was very high risk due to having had a late term stillbirth, as well as hypertension, GD, was in and out of the hospital for months, on complete bed rest from 6 weeks to delivery at 34 weeks, and pre-e. *good times* 

Needless to say, I had my tubes tied when Karli was born as it would have been irresponsible for me to get pregnant again.

Yes with my 3rd dd. 

She was transverse and her head was tilted so far back that the Dr's could not even attept to turn her. I was going in every two to three days for the last month of pregnancy for bedside ultrasounds to check her status. I was due feb 15th and on feb 4th when I went in her head and neck were even worse so they decide right then and their that an emergany c-section was th eonly option to ensure my dd was not born with a broken neck if I labored on my own.
