    You shouldn't need your GP. I'm a student midwife and have supported a few elective c/s due to emotional trauma during my prac placements.

    If you've had a traumatic birth which has left you with a fear (very valid reason) of vaginal birth then you shouldn't find it too difficult to obtain a c/s.
    Ask to see an OB and talk it over with them, be open and honest about your previous birth and how it's affected you. Stay strong and don't waiver. They WILL try to sway you because that's their job and they have to do that, but if you can explain your reasoning they are unlikely to deny you.

    I had an elective c-section for my first baby in a public hospital.

    I spoke to a midwife who ensured that when I saw an OB that it was a Consultant not a registrar as they would be able to make the final decision.

    Sure enough sat down, spoke with her and burst into tears. She said okay will book you in.

    I had a few problems with the midwives on the way through, but once I spoke with the consultant it was all organised.

    Good luck!!

    Default Elective c-section in public.

    Thank you so much ladies. Reading your posts has been such a relief!

    I have been thinking about this non stop. I haven't been sleeping well and my anxiety levels are threw the roof and I haven't had a problem with anxiety for years now!

    I really hope this isn't a huge fight and they will respect my decision and see that I will not change mind and have done a lot of research about c-sections and still firm in my decision.

    My first appointment is in 4 weeks. I hope I have an answer then because I can't go through this stress much longer.

    if you have been sexualy abused/asulted you can also request one. If birth felt like rape then you can request one too.
