    Im crashing as I want to see more positve love coming

    Im due 19th dec and was wanting vbac this time, but as so close to x-mas and the fact my 1st c-section was awesome, I am leaning towards a c-section. But of course havnt told anyone especially my Mum as will get the normal negative stuff ("Mum you had 5 pd babies compared to my nearly 9 pds and you have had numerous bladder surgeries resulting from vb's" - sorry vent!!)

    I had emergency c-section with ds1, after 24 hrs of labour and I was very calm and open to getting the baby here healthy. A lot came down to my ob (who is private) who just keep saying every visit "ohhh thats a big baby" as im 5ft 2 and dh is 6ft 4, ds took after him and I was HUGE!!! So in a way I think he had me prepared that I might need a c-section.

    I will post later my story but even a few gf's after seeing me having a c-section and the positives have gone down the c-section route and I feel blessed that I have opened there mind to looking at all the possibilites not just what is expected of them

    Hi every-one

    Firstly thankyou to all the ladies posting especially OP, Loco & Lambjam the insight to what a well planned elective c-section can help you achieve when for one reason or another we have not been able to achieve attempting to give birth vaginally. I am very happy to share my birth story about my labour-emergency c-section if people wish so please just reply and let me know if you would like to hear it....it is not as pleasant as some of the previous posts as it was an emergency and bubs was in distress but the surgery and recovery parts were perfectly fine ... just the circumstances surrounding the whole situation. But hey if it were that bad a story I would not be leaning towards an elective this time around

    To be honest this has been a difficult decision for me to make, whether to attempt VBAC or go for an elective c-section as both scenarios at my last birth left me feeling like neither would be amazing, however after reading such positive stories and being PROPERLY informed about reasonable requests that can be made during an elective c-section I am confident and at ease with making the decision and making requests for the experience I would like this time around. SO THANK-YOU ALL SSSOOOOO MUCH it is so nice to feel supported and read such positiveness as apposed to being persuaded otherwise

    WE are ALL MOTHERS that just want the BEST for our BABIES - LOVE, HEALTH & A SAFE ARRIVAL.

    ...... Nearly forgot to update this thread thanks mazntrav

    Well my CS ... Gosh 6 weeks ago now was AWESOME loved every second of it. The whole experience was something I can't wait to go through again.

    It was so exciting and no where near as horrific and painful as I'd imagined. I was up an about the next morning, although just a tad spaced out haha! My bl00dy mastitis was more painful than my CS ... I'm serious!!!!!

    Thanks girls that's me

    Hi Girls,

    after watching that great video on youtube mentioned previously in the thread "the natural cesarean-a woman centered technique" I did a bit of research and found an organisation in Australia called CANA - Cesarean Awareness Network Australia. they have some more information regarding family centered cesarean and even have a birth plan for cesarean ... well worth a read if you are heading down this track

    the website is http://www.canaustralia.net/

    they are dedicated to informing hospital administrators, educating midwives and care providers etc about making the experience achievable for all women. So even if you come across a hospital that is not keen, may be worth emailing them about your experience, you never know, they may fight for you to achieve your amazing experience.
