    Default elective c section q...

    Just wondering how an ob decides your date for an elective c-section?

    Which week does this usually happen?

    Do you get a say at all?

    TIA

    My OB said around 39w as its the safest for the baby.

    You do get some say but I doubt they'd let you go any earlier than 38w unless medically necessary.

    We didn't get a say. I was booked in for 39+6 and had my csection then.



    Me 29 + DH 33 = DD 8 months

    Usually your OB will have set days that he has the theatre to perform c/s. my OB did c/s on Friday's so anytime after 38 weeks on a Friday. DD3&4 didn't make it to 38 weeks though!

    With DD I got a choice of my Drs theatre days and with this bub I've just been booked in the day my Dr is back from holidays. I'm going in at 39+3 and so worried I'm going to go into labour before

    Both last time & this time my Ob suggested the gestation but I was able to suggest days if she had theatre openings.

    For example this time I asked for a Fri as I need my parents to travel 2hrs+ to my place to look after my DS and Friday is most convenient for them.

    My ob performs c sections on 2 days per week only. I could choose which day I wanted after 39 weeks gestation. He wouldn't do it before bubs was 39 weeks (I asked him because I was so over being pregnant I wanted bubs out ASAP).

    My OB does electives in the 38th week. Due to his surgery days, we ended up at 38w 3 days.
    I think before 38 weeks has to be for a specific medical reason.
