I am trying to find some information for my sister who is 36 weeks pregnant with baby #2.
First baby was planned homebirth with midwife, she never went to a Dr.
Due to PPROM at 35weeks 3 days had to have a hospital birth with no other complications other than prematurity.
2nd time around she has seen a Dr throughout her pregnancy just as a back up in case she delivered early again otherwise she'd still like to have it at home.
At her 35 wk appointment an ultrasound showed that the baby is breech with the cord wrapped aroud the neck, baby shows no sign of distress and Dr. is letting her go another 2 weeks since the cord is long enough for baby to still turn naturally.
At 38weeks if the baby hasn't turned Dr will schedule to physically turn the baby. IF he is succesfull in turning the baby and she doesn't go into labor she can go home and if all goes well birth at home. If she goes into labor during the procedure or it is unsuccesfull and the baby is still breech then a c-section would be her only option.
Our main concern is what method should she choose if she has a choice in drugs for the operation. If the baby is fine she'd like to nurse imediatly after, what drugs would allow her to do that? What is best for the baby? I know no drugs are 'good' for babies and the GA is hardest to recover from, but which would be the quickest recovery for both her and the baby so she could nurse and not give the baby more drugs than neccesary.
On another note, to prevent nipple confusion and bonding issues we're hoping that if she has to have GA and is unable to nurse that I would nurse her baby for her. Is this un heard of? Has anyone ever had a back up nurser for their baby in the hospital? I've nursed her son throughout the later end of her pregnancy.
Sorry this is long but as you can see we're concerned about the best outcome if she has a choice in drugs for having a c-section.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We have a little Girl!
Lorenna Edith, 7lbs 3oz.
Lorenna was born via c-section within 6 minutes of the actual incision and is very healthy. After suctioning, a good rub down and Apgar testing she was placed back on Lindy's (my sis) chest and nursed through the whole suturing process (45 minutes).
Lindy's uterus is heart shape which resulted in trapping the baby's head in the upper lobe.
Lindy's been a little nauseated and her temp has been lower then wanted (95.6) due to the left over anesthesia, but is gradually rising and she's doing good.
Thanks again for all your help and support.
