I am only allowed to remain in my MW's care until 41 weeks & then they need to turn me over to the OB's for a section. I am attempting a VBAC, but I don't think that really plays into the time limit. Is there any reason why I can't be allowed to go past 41 weeks other than it is their policy? I am 40 weeks today & have no intention of scheduling a c-section based on an arbitrary date. Should I find another provider if I hit 41 weeks? Am I putting my baby in danger by not having a c/s? What is the harm in going past 41 weeks other than the usual postdate problems that may occur? Does attepting a VBAC put me in a higher risk category? I shudder to think they would schedule all women for a c/s just based on dates. Is it just easier for them to send me for a c/s because I have already had one? I just don't see the logic. Whay shouldn't I be allowed to go into labor on my own. I had two previous VB's in which I went into labor on my own so my body certainly knows how to do it. My c/s was for a purely stupid reason because my OB was an idiot & I was uninformed & the situation is not something that will repeat itself. Anyone have any advice?
