My sons birth video
I posted this in the general section but also wanted to post here as this thread made me feel so much calmer and happier before my cesarean
Some of you may remember my posts about a month ago. After a stressful and disconnected emergency c-sec with DS1 I had done everything in my power this pregnancy to have a great VBAC. I'd been doing yoga and chiro, acupuncture and meditation, hypnobirthing and even had a doula to guide me. I was all set. Then we found out DS2 was breech. At first I crumbled.
Before trying all the therapies available to me to make him turn I pushed for a scan as my gut told me there was a reason, and we found out that DS2 had the cord around his neck twice (showing on ultrasound as a short cord), I had a fundal placenta and he wasn't engaged in any way... just breech floating there. With braxton hicks three minutes apart for almost a week we went in for a planned c-section at 38 weeks. And with a lot of the information I got from the wonderful women in this forum, we had as much of a natural c-section as possible.
My baby boy was away from me for only 30 seconds being checked by the paed before he was back on my chest, where he stayed skin to skin all day (except for the short while on daddy's chest when I was being moved between beds) until he was ready to get dressed. He breastfed beautifully from the beginning and we have coslept since birth. There were many things we put in place to help the experience be a positive one and if anyone would like to know I'll share
In the meantime thought I'd post this video of his birth, taken by our doula. Hopefully it will inspire someone that a c-section, be it their choosing or circumstance can be gentle, loving, connected and empowering

I'm not sure exactly. I know it was some kind of good quality SLR camera that allows you to do video as well... Which is kind of how she got away with filming in the operating room
