I, unfortunately, will be scheduling a c-section this time. I've attempted 3 natural births, the last of which was an attempted home-VBA2C with a direct-entry midwife. Each of them has resulted in a last-minute c-section, despite every effort on my part. I have MAJOR birth trauma. Honestly, even reading about birth kinda freaks me out. I have aversion to hearing about other people's births... it's kinda nuts. I think I'm going to seek some therapy before I have to do this one. But I'm also going to plan and schedule a c-section on my own terms. That way, I'll have at least SOME control over the events, which has been a major issue with my dealing with my previous birth attempts. So, I chose a provider I think will respect my wishes, and who comes recommended. It helps that I work for the hospital system to which the OBGYN group belongs, so I'll have full access to my medical records, I know a lot of the docs, and I'll get an employee discount on my bill.
Good for all of you having, or having had homebirths, though.
