    Yes I can see the benefits of going into labor before a scheduled cesarean. I think that it would only be beneficial though if it were spontaneous as then mother and baby will have all the natural hormones needed. I would speak to your OB about it though and see what they say. I haven't actually met anyone who has done it so can't say how recovery would go etc.

    No - in fact, it's one of the things my OB listed as a 'con' of attempting a VBAC (when talking through pros and cons) - that going in to labour first and then needing a c-section would be worse than scheduling a c-section and not labouring first.

    (Sorry if that wasn't clear - need a cup of tea in order to be more lucid...)

    I knew dd would be a c-section as she was breech and my obs wouldn't let me deliver a breech naturally due to previous birth complications and health issues. I went in to spontaneous labour before my scheduled date and it became an emergency c-section. I was around 8cm dialated by the time I went in for it. No bonding issues, no milk issues and whilst I found the recovery harder than my vb I was up and around the next day, somewhat carefully of course.
