I had planned a natural vaginal birth with my first, but it ended in an emergency caesarean, at Royal North Shore Hospital. Straight after it was done, the surgeon told me that I would be able to nominate an elective caesarean for the second, simply because the first was an emergency caesarean.
We are thinking about baby number 2 now and I will definitely be looking at taking that option suggested by the surgeon. I am also a little worried that they'll tell me that I can't nominate an elective caesarean at Royal North Shore Hospital (and that they advice I was given was wrong). It's just a bit of paranoia really.
Has anyone here been able to nominate an elective caesarean in the public system following an emergency caesarean?
