If my hips are too close together, which would mean I couldn't deliver a baby because my birth canal wouldn't widen for a baby to fit thru?
I had a c section because the Dr wasn't sure if it was my 8lb 13oz baby that most likely wouldn't fit thru which was why I wasn't dilating past a 6 (I honestly wasn't checked for over an hr and half when he said this) or I would be too small to deliver any baby at all. I know my aunt (moms lil sis)had an emergency c section when my cousin got stuck in the birth canal, because she has narrow hips and a narrow birth canal and was wondering if this could be a genetic thing? and if so can they tell on an U/S?
I'm sure my Dr wouldnt tell me because c sections make him more money. But IF I ever find a guy and want more kids I would like a home water birth and I'd love to know before thinking of another kid in concrete terms if I could or I would just have to do c sections. If so Id want him to do my c section because I have minimal scarring. If not I'm looking into getting a midwife.
