    Default RBWH for a repeat c-section...

    Hi Ladies, I'm going in for a repeat c-section next week at RBWH and I have to be at pre-admissions by 6:30am...

    For others that have been in the same situation, is it a case of first in first served (so to speak ) or a case of 'doesn't matter'.

    I realise that emergencies have priority (triage), but other than that, what's the wait time like?

    If someone could shed a bit of light on the matter, I'd be pretty chuffed and very grateful!

    When I had my csection we had to be there at 6.30 and I was second on list even though I was first one with paperwork in. It depends on the day who is booked I guess. DD was only breech so no urgency.

    Edit: 9.30 we went into prep and DD was out at 10.10am.


    Me 29 + DH 33 = DD 8 months

    AM Theatre list starts at 8am. There will be 2 or 3 elective Caesars that have been booked for that morning and the order of women will have already been predetermined, so you might go last even if you were there first.

    First baby should be born between 8-9am, second between 9:30-11am and the third between 10am-12pm.

    There are numerous reasons that could make the surgeries take longer - adhesions, difficulty with the spinal/epidural, a junior registrar that the consultant is teaching.

    prepare your partner/support person that they may have to wait outside whilst they do the spinal and only be brought in once you're on the table ready for surgery. It could be 30-45 min wait for that.

    They have multiple operating theatres and different doctors rostered onto elective Caesars and birth suite (for emergencies) so unless there was a massive disaster with an emergency Caesar that needed multiple surgeons, then it's highly unlikely that any emergency Caesars would affect the time you have yours.
