I've recently discovered I'm pregnant! Yay!
I already have a 2yo DS, and I had a quite traumatic birth with him which eventually came down to 50 hours of back to back labour, 2/3 without an epidural, started to show signs of infection as my waters broke a few days earlier, they were getting worried about DSs heart rate, and I dialated to 10cm, to push for 2 hours and have nothing happen to then have a specialist consultant check me to find I had gone back down to 4cm and had been pushing against that!
So I had an emergency CSection, healed fine and quickly. This was all in London. We're back in Adelaide now, I'm Australian and have Medicare but no private cover. It's early stages but I'm nervous about a VBAC. If I wanted to, can I elect a CSection again? And if so, do I have to pay on Medicare? Not sure that's what I want try but am considering my options. Thanks in advance.
