2 C-SECTIONS will i need a 3rd? Lock Rss

Hi
I'm looking to see if people have had the same or similar experience as me.. My first pregnancy i got induced 11 days over and after 26 hours of labour - 20 of those 2 min long contractions 1 min apart and vontousse and forceps i got rushed away for an emergency c-section.. my baby was posterior and just never turned to come out and they couldnt make him - he was 8pnd 2oz, my second pregnancy bub was also posterior and a bit bigger - he was 8pnd 4oz at my 36 week scan - the specialist told me i needed a c-section as he was bigger already and posterior too so i did - he was born at 39 weeks at 9pnd 2oz. Im now pregnant with my 3rd and if this baby isnt posterior what are my chances of having a natural birth??
Thanks in advance for all helpful replies or advice or just listening:)



i was told by my doctor who did the c-section that i would have to have another c-section because where they cut you it's not has strong and it may not be strong enough to hold if i push the next baby out.
Ask your doctor and see what they say. It seems all doctor say something different




There is no reason you can't have a natural birth if that is what you want. You'll probably find it very difficult to get a supportive dr. Your chances of achieving a vb is very dependent on choosing a care provider that supports you, believes in your ability to birth your baby and doesn't impose restrictions on your pregnancy or labour. Do some of your own research on vba2c and consider all available options. Best of luck smile

Hi, I had both ds1 and ds2 by c sect. Ds1 was a brow presentation and emergency caesar. Ds2 was due to failure to progress....load of ccrap if you ask me.
Anyway, this time around I have ditched my private hospital and hired a private midwife who births at my local public hospital. She is supportive and the head ob at the hospital is supportive (even though I don't have to meet him until 36 weeks. My midwife is the only person I see until then so no negativity creeps in.
I have a friend who successfully birthed twins after 2-sect so it can be done. Best to research and inform yourself so that when people throw negative at you, you are confident with your informed choice.
At the end of the day, if my birth has to end with a caesar that's okay as I know this time I will not be pressured into it by scared hospital staff....it will be purely out of necessity if my baby is at risk!
Best of luck
