    Research! The more you know about c-sections, or the results of emotional scarring from a traumatic birth, the more likely the Ob will say yes.

    I know our local hospital will say yes to a woman who knows what she wants and is well informed.

    Thanks blissed out. I have been trying to research but I just can't seem to find exactly what I'm after. My appointment with the OB is still 5 weeks away so I do have plenty of time thankfully!

    My sister in law had one yesterday! First baby, she just had a fear of natural childbirth so wanted a c-section from day one. At about 30 weeks she had appointment with the obs overseeing the midwife program and just explained her fears, demonstrated she understood the risks, etc They tried to talk her out of it by trying to alleviate her fears around natural childbirth (which I guess is their job) but when she confirmed she still wanted a c-section, they booked her in on the spot for a 39 week ceaser...

    Good luck!

    Hi, I had an emergency c-sec with my first and will be electing this time. Just wanted to let you know I recently acquired a book called "Caesarean Birth: A Positive Approach to Preparation and Recovery" by Leigh East for my own reasons and it is a fantastic, well written and thought out book with lots of information for the positive and negatives of c-sections. Just thought it might help you in your research as it is hard to find "good" information that is not biased and it might help you formulate your argument for the obs. Good luck hun

    Thank you so much!! I will look though them all when DD has her nap!

    I really hope I can get it easily enough but by the way the MW was talking it did sound like i will be fighting tooth and nail .

    I called my GP to get him on my side before my hospital appointment but he is completely booked out for 7 weeks!!!!

    I had a molar pregnancy when I was 17 and I had a fantastic Ob who said my uterus couldn't carry full time. I'm also freaking out and have epilepsy. I've already had two grand mal seziures during my pregnancy so I just said when I'm anxious I have more seizures which is true.. I'm scared when I go into labour I will have more seizures. My next app is on Friday to book everything in .

    Good luck water lily, I hope you get the outcome your looking for.
