    Default When did you know the date of your elective c-section?

    Just wondering at what point in your pregnancy did you book in a date for an elective c-section? I am currently 25 weeks and would like to book in a date so I can plan around it. I know, I know.....control freak much!! I am seeing my OB Monday, but wanted to see what others had experienced. Thanks!

    34 weeks but only because I pushed to be booked in. My hospital does bookings at 36 weeks usually.

    11 and a half weeks, yes super duper early. My Ob understood my need for planning as my Mum will be coming from overseas so needed to book flights and also needed to request time off with a fair bit of notice.
    You should be fine getting a date from your Ob this visit I would say.
    Good luck 😃

    Private you will find out early. Public is,usually always 36 weeks. I never even got to book in my last 2 because I went early

    I knew at around 30 weeks through public. I had another son though and the hospital prioritised those with kids or partners who worked away.

    I went private and had a date when I went for my 2nd appointment so I think I was 11weeks.
