My son was breech at 36/38 weeks and to avoid trying a breech delivery, I went to have him turned. At that stage, I had not had a c-section and didn't want to. I would've done anything to avoid it, but I would've chosen c-section over breech delivery. He ended up turning on his own and I had drug free natural birth.
That's not as "risky" as a home or free birth or c section in my opinion.
I should also mention - I've had had both home birth & a water birth at a birthing center all planned & due to unforeseen complication with me not bub # 3 will be a c section. So I think I'm pretty qualified to weigh in on this & still be objective. Both my previous births were brilliant & both mid wife assisted, my home birth I had a doula as well. If I had any doubt or any hint of a complication I would gone to a hospital in a heartbeat. Some complications can't be foreseen but my point was if you know about one - why risk it?
Sorry I am going to have to come back tomorrow, for some reason the forum is really really really slow in loading things tonight and it's driving me batty, was like this last night too
My bub turned just before his birth at 41 weeks. I am fortunate to have had the support of a hcp with experience in breech who was able to support me in case of a breech birth. This support allowed him the time to change position to head down for birth. If i had been through the hospital, i would have to fight hard (it it was possible at all) to avoid a c section, that ultimately proved unnecessary.
I honestly don't know how you can make that statement.
I agree that I don't understand not getting prenatal care.
