    Default Cesarian, anyone elected to have one?

    Seeking all the information I can for my birth.... has anyone elected to have a cesarian? And for what reason?
    Thanks

    Hi there! I had an elective c-section. DD is an ivf baby yet from the beginning was measuring in the 90th percentile. Due to my height and small frame my OB recommended a c-section as he said the chance of me having a natural birth was extremely slim. I had complete trust in him so proceeded accordingly. Another thing that helped me make the decision was that I did not want to cause DD any distress by trying to go natural. I am not ashamed of my decision (despite the taboo of c-sections) and have a happy and healthy 11 month old little girl. Are you planning to have an elective?

    Hi there, I had a planned c section due to DD being breech. The experience was great but I was quite ill (bad reaction to painkillers) for a couple of days afterwards and then unable to BF as she didn't attach and my milk never came in ended up with DD being admitted to special care. She picked up from there and has had good gains, and apart from silent reflux is otherwise healthy.
    i don't mean to scare you but just want to warn you that c sections are not without their challenges! Although you don't go through the labour the recovery afterwards is hard work. But others will have different experiences, and ultimately you need to do what it right for you, bubs and your partner. Good luck!

    I had an "elective" with DD (classed elective but wasn't my plan, but wasn't emergency either!) and ended up loving it! Surgery was easy, my recovery was straight forward, was walking the next day and only on panadol by day 4 or so. No issues breast feeding and my milk came in on time.

    I'm having another elective with this bub as my first experience was so good.

    You'll hear lots of mixed experiences like with any birth, just do what you feel is right for you and your baby xx

    I had a planned c section on the advice of my ob, bub was ivf and I was 42. It was great. No problems recovering and overall a positive experience. It's empowering to be able to make your own birth decisions - whether to try for a vaginal delivery or go straight to c section. Decide what is best for you and bub

    I chose an elective cs as I didn't want a viginal birth. I loved my cs. It was fantastic and I would do it again anytime.

    I elected to have a c-section and advised my OB at our first meeting when I was 12 weeks pregnant.

    I didnt have to have a reason, it was my personal choice.

    It was my first baby and I wanted a c-section. And I got it!

    I will most likely elect to have one with this baby. I will discuss it with my OB at my first visit but that's how I am leaning....

    I ended up in an emergency CS with DS and I guess I just don't have enough belief that I will successfully VBAC.....

    If I'm going to end up a CS anyway I'd rather it not be after 2 days of labouring this time.....

    We'll see though, maybe my OB will convince me to give it a go....

    This is why I refuse all painkillers and only have panadol, which I am perfectly fine with. My first 2 c-sec I was really sick during and after. Last 2 were great.
