After being frustrated about the care I had been receiving, I said something to the extent of "Why is it so hard for me to just have a baby?!?" My friend asked what I was talking about, and I told her how hesitant the OBs I had been seeing had seemed about my VBACing. She said', "Oh, they were going to let my friend have a VBAC!" I asked her if she was successful, and she said, "No. She was going to, but the baby got stuck."
If I remember correctly (and I may not), "stuck baby" was a common, but not always valid, reason for "needing" a c-section, which if correct, would be just another reason why I want/need to switch providers, if a stuck baby isn't valid. I understand there are circumstances in which babies can get stuck, but I thought a lot of times it could be resolved with change of position.
Can anyone tell me statistics of "stuck" babies, and/or if that is a legit reason for needing a c-section?
