I would think if you are having a CS you wouldn't need the Vit K as there won't be any bruising. That's what I would opt for. As far as finding it if you do decide to get it, I have no idea.

I have to disagree... Have you seen how doctors handle a baby in a c-section birth? They're rough and fast and twist them all about... It's a very rough birth!
We weren't going to do vit K with DD however she was at a +1 station (so past the spines, well engaged into the pelvis and a mere few stations before being OUT) and so they pulled her BACK through the pelvis for our "emergency c-section". There was no bruising however the birth was incredibly traumatic and they didn't allow her cord to stop pulsating first so we opted to do vit K.
