Why did you have a c-section?

I had one cause my DD was breech and stayed that way my whole pregnancy. They would have had to break her hips if I tried to have her vaginally.

1st baby was natural. 2nd baby had a big head & couldn't get his head all the way through & got stuck lol. Babies 3 & 4 were repeats because my hospital refuses VBAC's.

I can't imagine how scary that would be.

Because my medwife tried to rush my labor. My baby didn't like that much, and went into distress.

Basically, one intervention led to another and voila ... CSECTION.

Ugh.

Thankfully, i was able to VBAC.

My pelvic bones didn't open with dd. She ciuldnt drop let alone come out that way. Ds it was a repeat but he was breech so I would have needed It anyway.

My water had been broken for 24 hrs and I was contracting but not dialating. My ds heartbeat would slow down significantly during a contraction so they did an emergency c section.

How did she try to rush it? With medicine?

I think this question does get asked often.

I had one because I was in labor for 14 hours, 4 hours of pushing. Baby got stuck after crowning
