Hi--I'm posting for my daughter since her computer is down. She'll pick up the thread when she gets the computer back.
She is expecting her third baby in December. Baby #1 was CS because mom was pre-eclamptic, had been in labor a couple of days, didn't respond to pit drip, and was told she had to have that baby. Baby #2 was CS because doc didn't want baby going past 42 weeks and first birth was CS.
This time around, mom wants to consider a vaginal birth. Due date is 3+ years past second CS, 5 years past first CS. Mom is now age 31 and in good general health, busy active SAHM with two little girls, chickens, garden, etc.
What are the risks to a baby going past 42 weeks?
What are the risks for a 3rd CS?
