No choice

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is there anyone else here besides me that has no delivery options but a c-section My birthing run down is this. First baby delivered at 38 weeks by a natural vaginal birth. Second baby I was induced once again. Labored for 19 hours. Twelve of those hours I never dialated past a 6 and he never engaged in the birth canal was always a minus 3 station (floating). I had a very c-section unfriendly doctor who said he couldn't let me go any longer and actually let me go longer than hospital policy. Third baby it was discussed with doctor that I would VBAC and he said that is what he preferred over repeat c-sections. It never happened she was delivered at 26 weeks by emergency c-section. My utereus was cut in the dreaded classical incision because of the emergency. Fourth was a repeat c-section which was horrible because I woke up during the surgery. I had general ansthesia because they couldn't never place a spinal. They tried about 8 times over an hour and my back was mutilated. My fourth was also breech and I had postpartum hemorrhage. Which if I hadn't had to have a c-section I would have asked them to try to turn him. Here I am on my last and 4th c-section and I hate it. I want to give birth naturally again.

Wow...you've had a rough time of it, mama!

I can't imagine how frustrating it must be not to have a choice.

One thing that I have learned here on MDC, is that it seems like the best c/sections are the ones that people really accept and plan for. I admit it would be really, really hard to do that.
