I was wondering if there truly is a time when a woman's body is too narrow to naturally deliver?
My step-sister-in-law is pregnant again and had a c-section with her first dd, because the docs told her that her hips weren't wide enough to naturally deliver. I just never really understood that. She is a big person-at least 5'9' and solidly built (not tiny). I just heard her saying the other day how she will have to have another c-section because she can't help that she has narrow hips......

Thanks everyone, i have learned alot and will ask my step sil again about her first birth to clarify about the doc. I should mention that I had shoulder dystocia with ds this past January, he was stuck over 3 minutes, and i had naturally labored in hands and knees (as I had with my other pergnancies) but that position wasn't enough to get him out.
