Do I need anymore complications in my life? No...but that's not my life, it's someone else's.
I am still marginal placenta previa at 34 weeks 3 days. I am being prepared for a c-section by all of my caretakers and I totally feel like this is absolutely unnecessary. I had an emergency c with my dd because she was frank breech.
I am considering a home birth but I have a history of hemorrhaging. I am a little worried about that aspect of a home birth. OK, it scares the crap out of me. The last time I was hemorrhaging, I remember flying down the hall on a gurney and being put under with general anesthesia for the surgery. It was a hard and fast deal, and it took me a long time to heal and recover.
The hospital and birth team I currently have will not even consider a marginal placenta previa patient. It's an automatic c-section. I saw my OB today and he was not hopeful. I have had no symptoms, I did have small spotting 2 days after we moved at week 32 but it was not due to the previa.
I am already seeing a chiropractor (for breech baby), and acupuncturist (for breech and for my rheumatoid pain) and an herbalist (for the previa). Has anyone ever had a vaginal birth with a marginal previa or successfully moved the placenta prior to birth?
We are considering the home birth only because DH and I do not want an unnecessary c-section. I already got that t-shirt and I don't want another.
