    Hmmm... If I was paying for a private ob, I would want them to be able to cover any type of emergency, otherwise why go private? That all sounds kind of strange to me. Why cant your ob do a c-section and when did they tell you this? If only just now might give you the grounds for a refund of your fees and to look for another ob, or to go back to the public system?

    Both my pregnancies were completely healthy, but ended in preterm labour and emergency c-sections, with no prior warning.
    First time I was public and the hospital was very efficient at getting me the emergency c-section. 2nd time I had a private ob, and that was a relief because she was wonderful all the way through, and performed a fantastic c-section which healed really quickly.

    Well my Ob is a gp/ob which means he can deal with an uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery which so far my preg has been amazing touch wood. He's an amazing Dr too. But the letter they sent me says if a specialist is required to b called in during labour the charge will b approx 1k (their charge not his) and this is not recoverable from ur phi. So I'm assuming if things go pear shaped and I need a csect this specialist will come in with his charge but I dnt understand y they say its not recoverable. An emergency is an emergency. Or r they going to charge it on the sly as an assistance fee. I mean fingers crossed it doesn't go this way but I just wana know what my out of Pocket costs will b I dnt want any nasty surprises.
    Hope that explains it a bit better.

    Perfect, fit and healthy not even a bit of morning sickness. For the first 30 weeks I kept forgetting I was pregnant! Unfortunately I ended up having an emergency cesarean. Failure to progress past 6 cm.

    My pregnancy was so 'perfect' I didn't find out about it until 20 weeks! Had an emergency ceaser as they were worried about bub's heartrate. He had tied a knot in his cord so lucky they got him out when they did!

    Well first of all you want to aim for the obviuos - be fit, eat healthy so you have some stamina for the birth.
    Regarding the exercises, you should take a look at the spinning babies website, which tells you how to find out what position bubs is in, which ones are best for birth and how to get them there. Its called optimal fetal positioning, and basically you want to be on all fours lots, so thats bubs' heaviest part, their back moves forward to your stomach. My midwife also told me, these exercises are good to do in labour, if bubs is not quite right, they might even not help much until then.
    Oh and I have been seing a chiropractor to get my pelvis and spine adjusted, I feel heaps better than last time. Apparently accupunctre also helps if baby is stubborn... Good luck!

    Just gotta second the spinning babies website. I was doing these positions constantly to try and move bub from posterior, I know that bub probably moved herself but at least I felt like u was doing something and felt more confident knowing where she was positioned. Good luck

    Yes. I was reasonably fit and healthy. Bub turned posterior despite me sitting forward etc etc. I didn't know though, had I known I would have tried more positions on spinning babies. I had 4-5 days of pre-labour. Waters broke, contractions started 2hours later. Went to hospital 7 hours after contractions started and I was 1cm. WOOT. I got to stay, which I was happy about as I was no longer happy labouring where we were staying. Ended up with a Section the next day to due Failure to progress/Foetal distress. Cord was around DS's neck a few times. Lots of moulding on his head and he was pretty stuck I think.
    I had a good recovery. My DH tells me that everyone else knew what way the labour was heading - due to the fact I was cotnracting well but not making progress plus There were a few decel's at times. I sometimes wonder if I didn't have the epi would things have been different but I don't think so. I can't change it and I made the best decision for me at the time.
