    Default Why did you have your elective c-section?

    Hi,

    Thought I would give us the opportunity to say why we had elective c-sections, most women I know have a reason.

    I had mine due to polyhydramnios and an unstable lie. Proved to be the right decision as ifmy waters has ruptured spontaneously my cord would have prolapsed. And it also proved to be a wonderful experience.

    My mum was due to start chemo around my due date. She'd been diagnosed earlier in my pregnancy. It was more important to me to have my mum there when my baby was born and to be able to enjoy the following days.

    The main reason for mine where due to having a pathological fear of hospitals.

    Mine was due to CT showing internal CPD (not external - I know there's lots that would say - well your pelvis will stretch), I had this at 39weeks as bub had started turning back after trying to get down into position.

    My sister had her's due to HELLP syndrome.

    I hate that it's called elective anytime you have a c/section prior to labour, as it sounds like (from what other people think) you're "too posh to push"

    I had to rely upon an OB and midwives who'd delivered hundreds of babies (more VB than CB) over the fact that I hadn't birthed any babies. It was hard to deal with the decision after speaking to other mothers, a lot of who told me CPD doesn't exist.

    ETA: I find it hard to believe that an OB who has a greater record of VB over CB would opt for telling a woman that she needs a CB just because "it's easier" for them. Surely the cost factor wouldn't enter into it at 39weeks?
