I am going a little crazy worrying whether I am doing the right things to avoid a repeat of my fairly traumatic EmerC which resulted in PTSD.
I am 24 weeks pregnant with #2, have decided not to go private OB route this timeand instead try birthing centre and have hired a doula. Apart from going private (!) I feel like I did everything right to avoid Caes last time: didn't allow doc to induce me at 41 weeks, went into labour naturally at 41+1, didn't go to hospital until I was 7-8 cm, no drugs but Foetal distress after 2 hours in pushing stage meant an easy (ish) decision to emerC.
I worry that the distress was caused by the fact that I was strapped to bed for CFM but whatever the cause I dont think I would have had the same problems at home. That said and particularly in light of my previous caesarean, I am not brave enough to home birth this time. Am I mam g a mistake? Can I trust the hospital/birthcentre to help me birth this bub naturally?
