    thanks guys,
    I've made my decision though, and believe me when I say that the last 14 weeks have been spent doing nothing but research on both c-sections and natural births. It's led me to nothing but just feeling worse about the whole situation.
    I guess I'll just have to deal with whatever happens, however it effects me mentally and physically.

    Don't feel bad! You're doing what you think is right for you

    Have a look at this; this is what im doing and it's beautiful, calm and relaxed!

    My ob and my midwife know this is how I want it, and that's what I'm getting!

    You can have the exact same, just don't believe their crap about not being able to!

    Hey hun, just read your post and wanted to offer some support and hugs - I'm going to private message you but basically lots of people will tell you and try and make it seem like you don't have a choice but you do. I'm proof of that and work in the health system so while most don't want you to know you have options, you definitely do but there does need to be reason. Don't panic. I'll message you now

    Congrats on your pregnancy. As a Mum to 2 csection bubs, I can tell you that you get a lot more attention and fidling around after a csection. But, if you truely want one, Private is your best bet, there is a female Ob at the Wesley who will do electives. Good luck.

    Just a warning that even if the Ob in the public system agrees to your plan now, dosn't mean they will stick to their word when it comes to crunch time.

    I had to fight to get attempt a vbac in the public system and the whole pregnancy they were on my side but come time for bubba and they couldn't give a stuff what I wanted, there was nothing I could do about it either as I wasn't in a position to fight them. I was told I am killing my baby not agreeing to have some procedures etc that were unnecessary etc.

    I agree that VBACs are very hard to get in the public system, but that is a whole different issue. They are considered dangerous by many health practitioners (I don't believe rightly at all times), but obs are afraid of them for their own reasons of not wanting to be sued.

    A ceserean is a safe and widely used procedure which is 'fought against' by the public health system because of the cost. And that's it!

    I have 3 letters from different obs and therapists and midwives confirming my cesarean, so quite frankly if they were to somehow 'Force' me into having a natural birth, I would sue them for all they were worth!

    I'm going to have to disagree with you I'm sorry, as I remember quite clearly having to sign a form prior to surgery saying that the surgery may cause death!!!!

    You aren't disagreeing, I completely agree with you.

    It's surgery, any surgery can cause death.

    Can I just point out however, that the only reason they don't ask you to sign a form saying "birth may cause death" is because it's something that is definitely going to happen to a pregnant lady, completely unprovoked by the medical profession. Which means they won't be responsible if you die giving spontaneous birth.
