I absolutely agree that the decision between "natural" or c-section birth is completely up to the mother and not one that most take lightly!
I am about to have my first child in April through the public system. At my last scan I was told that bubs has a rather large head and me being quite small this scared the hell out of me. When I mentioned this to the ob he was very dismissive and said there was nothing they would do about it. That I would not be able to have an elective caeser unless bub was going to be bigger than 4.5kgs, and that isnt likely.
I feel its a bit unfair that I dont have the option to choose a c-section when I genuinely believe baby will get stuck, Il need an emergency c-section and have to deal with recovery from both. Of course I dont know this, but it terrifys me!
Has anyone else managed to get a c-section publicly without a medical reason?
