The reason I am posting this here is that I would like the input of professionals when looking at this particular situation. I have a similar posting, but I titled it w/a VBAC lable, so it got moved. I have a girlfriend with labor that keeps stopping and starting, to the tune of six weeks. It is changing the cervix, but she is really really tired, and would like to simply get it over with and HAVE the baby, already. Problem is, she's on her fourth baby, and her third was a c-section. She's been drinking a steady supply of RRT, has been having a lot of sex, warm baths, and walking. Can someone suggest something to try that won't put the c-section incision in danger of rupture? Her first two labors started with rupture of membranes, but after 24 hours, contractions had not started, so she gave in and went to the hospital for pitocin. The third was a supposed breech emergency section. So, she's NEVER had contractions on her own before this. This is heartening to her, but she's on a clock of sorts, hospital will only allow a VBAC to go 41.5 weeks and she's at 40 tomorrow. Any ideas? Thanks!
