    It's stupid I talk about elective cs's like they are risk free. There can be complications with the spinal. There is also a big risk of infection, and not everyone gets the dreamy relative pain/complication free recovery.

    In my due group several of the ladies ended up with infections & one had to have a d&c after products were retained.

    I really hope if the OP (who hasn't 100% decided) chooses to have a CS that's she has an awesome experience.

    I am saying that every procedure and any kind of anesthetic has risks. Birthing a child in any kind of way is never risk free.
    So if a spinal is a no no, then she'll have to choose an epi or full anesthetic which have equally undesirable side effects. Not just the spinal.

    Have you had an elective cesarean after the emergency cesarean? If so, what pain relief did you go for after the anesthetist has had a good informative chat with you and told you everything you wanted and needed to know about all drugs on hand?
    With the emergency cesarean, you don't get a lot of time to think and choose what you want. With an elective cesarean, the hospital will give you all the information you need, well before you have your cesarean.
    I am sure this will be the case for the OP too if she decides to go that way.

    In all honesty, my CS was elective but I never met my anesthetist (too tired to spell right) until he was going my procedure. I never discussed drugs, or had any choice in what they gave me.

    I didn't care. If I'd asked I probably would have got the info. But I would have done what they recommend anyway so it didn't really matter.

    Except I still don't know if I had an Epi or spinal block!!! I couldn't feel anything, that's all I cared about.

    I refuse to lower myself to an argument. My apologies for mentioning something that may not be thought of. I was amazed to see the different risk factors for the spinals/Epi's as well as the comparisons for vb and CS. While no, I didn't have an elective CS after my emergency one, I did however spend my ENTIRE pregnancy weighing the pros and cons of electing to have a CS and it was an agonizingly difficult decision.
    It amazed me some of the things i didn't think about until someone suggested researching them. Anyhow apparently my opinion or suggestions aren't valid or warranted so I'll just leave it there.

    Spinals in c/s and epi's in vaginals = are equally risky.

    Let's just hope that the OP has done her research and this is why she wants to know more about c/s because vaginal births might still not be the way to go for her after all her research.




    I had cholestasis too, but didn't get to 37 weeks DS had to be born at 35+3. Lucky you get that far. The premmie bit made breastfeeding incredibly challenging, but with a lot of hard work and determination, I managed to breastfeed for 14 months.
    Hehehe I know we have talked about it in another thread you and I are the resident bubhub cholestasis peeps. With dd1 they found it at 36+1 and talked delivery the next day we held out until 37+1. With dd2 it was caught earlier and I was put on meds which help to control a bit more better but was still itchy. Thank goodness I had winter bubs I would of not handle a summer bub like you had lots of props to you they spoke of delivery dd2 at 39 weeks but we ended up at 37+1 too because of PE and my auto immune. If I was able to go to term (if cholestasis and PE didn't return I would of achieved a vbac )

    I had a few big fibroids so knew I would have a c section and it was booked in at my 12 weeks scan, it was honestly a great experience, I had never been in hospital before! I loved my OB and anesthetist , I literally turned up to the hospital and checked in and 2 hours later had DS in my arms! My recovery was easy, absolutely no problems and I was easily walking around the next day

    Yeah I wonder how many people on BH actually have had cholestasis. It seems to be not that very common. Especially not in people who do not have it running in their family or have heritage in Sweden, Finland and Chile.
    I was told only 1% of pregnant women get cholestasis. Though have read that it's dropped in the last 10 years to about 0.7%, yet they can not explain why.

    I wont be able to have more kids, but if I could it would be the decider whether or not I was going to. I really do not want that itch again. I still have scars on my back and thighs
