    Default Water injections

    Two mids. The do one injection each at same time in your lower back. It's like accupressure but lasts longer. It really stings. Four injections work the best but they do two and then if you can cope with it will do another two. They work great but did leave me with big bruises.

    From what I understand you cant have a c/s once bubs has crowned. I have read somewhere that once bubs is in the birth canal and bascially already coming out that it is dangerous to have a c/s as it takes too long to prep and at that stage bubs health could be at serious risk.

    Zombie I have no idea? I don't reckon though. I had a friend who bub was half in canal and they had to push baby back up for csect. It was dangerous and cos of a stuff up it happened but I think in general they wouldn't do it?

    Im pretty sure you cant, or if you do its exceptionally dangerous. My ds1 was already at the point of crowning and instead of a c/s they tore him out vaginally instead as they couldnt do a c/s so late in second stage. There was no need for him to be out that instant, but thats another days story...

    You can't have a csection with sholdur dystocia. DS there is no way they can have bubs head out for that long. Not a chance.

    the water injections are perfectly safe.. the formal name is Sterile Water Injections. The injections themselves sting (as others have said), they are primarily used when there is a lot of back pain in labour, so if baby is posterior.. most women report some relief, though it doesn't totally take the discomfort away.. it is a fab option for women who don't want drugs in labour, but need some extra help with back pain.
