Needless to say she is not happy, she was planning a VBAC. My real question here is do they really need to separate the mother and child after a c-section? Do they really need to put the baby in "observation" after this birth becasue of blood sugar problems? My SIL is taking insulin now, so I guess her OB, like many OB's does not want to take any chances.
I am really worried about her going through a repeat PPD after the c-section and I am also worried about her being able to bond with this baby. She has a lot of issues with the last birth, that she still hasn't delt with, and may never, and it was over three years ago.
Any insight would be helpful...
P.S I am I just being paranoid here, but I would not want my baby to leave my sight, or at least my dh sight, what if they gave the baby formula or any crap like that... Its just scary.:

They want to do a c-section becasue the baby is breach-getting too big etc.. you name the excuse and they are giving it to her.
The big part of the problem is she won't listen to me, I have asked her to disscuss with her OB in great detail her need to have that baby with her and not separated. She still has about a month to go before the surgery so she still has time to assemble a relyable team of support in the hospital. I have offered to come to town but she never responded, basically ignored my offer- I am not about to impose myself on anyone.
As for her PPD I asked her to seek real medical advice and to be proactive, it's like she already has PPD and the baby isn't even born yet. She will not take any meds for it at all. I find it frustrating when people won't help themsevles. But she's family, I don't want to ignore her, but she does a lot of this to herself.
Maybe she feels that if she goes on medication for PPD she may never get off. I really feel for her, and try to be supportive even if I feel she isn't taking care of herself enough.
