I am wondering if any of you knowledgeable midwives have any thoughts on this. I was told by my midwife(CNM-delivering at a hospital), that because I have had 6 vaginal births, that my risk of uterine rupture is the same as a mom that has had a c-section(even though I've never had a c-section). That being said, she said if I need to be induced(the past few births I have been induced due to pre-eclampsia one time, and PIH for another), that she would be unable to do the cervidil like we used with the last birth, she would only be able to do pitocin or breaking my water. Does this make any sense? I find it hard to believe that a uterus that has gently stretched 6 times, rather than been cut into would have the same risk of rupture.
I really love my midwife, she's been with me for the past few pregnancies. I'm just wondering if this is something every midwife is going to have as a "rule" or if most don't. With my history of having inductions for my high blood pressure and/or pre-eclampia, it's a very real possibility of being induced this time(due in Sept).
Thanks for your time. Sara
