Firstly - its not up to them what birth you have -that is entirely YOUR CHOICE.

Its not un heard of that women have a normal birth even after 2 caesareans!
Ive had the privilage of a HVBA1C, so my advise if you are serious about wanting a natural normal delivery - fight for it - there is a 0.35% chance of uterine rupture - which im sure you can understand that is flippin low!!

As for caesarean date - they usually do Elective (planned) caesareans anywhere between 38 and 39 weeks pregnant.

Welcome to the forum by the way Smile

i hate the health 'professionals' once a caesarean always a caesarean in their eyes and if you disapprove of caesareans like me - they try to scare you into making the 'right' decision!

Whilst i was pregnant with my VBAC baby - they told me id give birth to a dead baby and IF i survived id need a hysterectomy Shocked

I hate them all with a passion !!!!

Hi gim

well i am proof for the other side of the story. I had a c section first time cos had no progression of labour, the 2nd time i was encouraged to have a normal delivery as i really thought it would be ok. As time was getting closer i was getting quite scared so i mentioned to my consultant that i wasn't sure about normal delivery. He said dont worry rupture very rare! Anyway i was induced and got to 9 cms dialated, had epidural in for pain, and they noticed the baby's heart rate suddenly drop!!! Luckily theatre was already prepared for another patient (non emergency) so they whipped me in and got her out quick!! My uterus HAD ruptured and it was touch and go if we both survived!! I'm not trying to scare you but you should be aware that it CAN happen, so even if the % isn't that high, it happened to me!!! I am now expecting again, early days, but have seen consultant and he wants me in at 36/37 weeks for a planned section. Only so early cos of rupture. So i am quite scared but they will monitor me well so fingers crossed.

Hope it goes well for you.

Helz xx

The answer as to why you ruptured is written in your comment.

A caesarean mother SHOULD NEVER be induced - for this very reason - they bring on contractions twice if not 3 times more stronger than a women in spontanious labour - therfore your risks of uterine rupture are many times higher.

I had high blood pressure and there wasn't many other options, i was only given 1 dose of gel and it worked straight away and the labour wasn't particularly fast or strong!! I understand you are very anti having a c section but ultimately it saved my life!!! I think it is up to the individual to make their choice!!

Hi gim

hope i haven't confused you, but i wish someone had told me before hand i prob would have gone for the c section to save having to go through that!!!!!

You go to lilypie.com or other web sites and make a ticker then copy and paste into your forum settings, make sure the bb code is on and submit, I think Confused

oh something else i want to say, the health care professionals were fantastic with me. My consultant wanted me to go for a normal delivery, so he wasn't pushing me into having a section!! He felt really bad after and said if he had known what was going to happen he would NEVER have encouraged me to have a normal birth!!

You say that due to high bp you were given gel as there wasnt many options available, - then you say that you wish someone had told you that - you would of gone for another c section to save going through that - which is it, you either wanted to labour or you didnt?
Once you have had one caesarean you can 'opt' for one if you wish to...?

And reguarding 'to save going through that' - you only ever go through what you want to - unless your me and the NHS force you into everything you dont want Twisted Evil

Gim, if you click on the baby ticker you like on the forum it takes you to their website where you enter your due date etc.. and copy the BB or forum code, then come back here - edit your 'signature' and paste in that code, it should work then.

of course i would have prefered to have normal labour followed by normal delivery, but it didn't work out like that!!! What i meant was if i had known it was goint to turn out like that i would have gone for section straight away!!! I find your attitude really offensive, you dont know what i went through as i dont know what you did but for you to tell me that "you only ever go through what you want" is a ridiculous statement to make!!! I was just giving my opinion as were you, so dont try and tell me what i should have done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mrs Springer i think your aggressive attitude towards Helz is not necessary. I think she was just giving her own real life situation which she would not have opted for, but is making a point could happen. WE ALL have our own C-section experiences and should feel free to share without being judged. My first section saved my little boy has he had a tru knot and may have died durring the birth. I elected for my second purely for the risk factor of this happenening again. My Doctors and Health professionals like Helz were fantastic and I am very grateful of their experience and knowledge. Please do not judge !and all the best to gim for a good delivery and healthy baby.
