I think I would be more pissed with the midwife than the doctor who did it. Surely she felt that your baby was in a posterior or like position and if not, I would question her skills as a midwife. There are many positions in labor to help babies move into the right position at birth, as I have seen Pam discuss them many times on these boards. Your baby for whatever was in that position, refused to move into a proper position, and honestly you may not know why.
Also I wanted to touch on something, it was something I thought about this week while on vacation. I read so many stories about home birth transfers or birthcenter transfers to hospitals, where then the mothers (or their original providers) blame the doctor for their csections. While I think its one thing to have a bedside manner that accompanies compassion and grace, I also have begin to look at how these doctors must feel - being presented with a patient they have never seen, in a distressful or even an emergency situaiton, that has gone against mainstream medicine. Having members of my family in the medical field I now begin to understand that liability is a big threat to their careers and their own personal lives.

I can't tell you how much better a planned c/s is compared to my crash one under general. Baby came out perfect this time!
I have a few questions. I seem to have some lumpy painful blobs of scar tissue, particularly on the left side above the incision. Has anyone else experienced this? Never had this problem with my first one. Although I only have mild pain, it seems to be continuing much longer than the last time. I am four weeks out now. I see my mw next week...
Any suggestions on how to improve the scar tissue and pain?
