Yes. I had to have DS delivered at 31+2 via emergency c-section.
I never got to experience labour, nor can I ever attempt a vbac due to the way I was cut open.
I was looking forward to the experience of a vaginal birth, but I'll never have one. I've dealt with that now though and I'm okay with it

Yes. I transferred to hospy from a planned homebirth very late in the pushing stage and had syntocin drip. Was offered ventouse but declined. Stitched after labour.

Yes, I had stretch and sweep, gel to start labour and managed 3rd stage. I didn't even think/notice the placenta stage.

Yep lots, my waters broke and then nothing so a few days later (after a few rounds of antibiotics) I was induced. I tried gas (made me feel really sick), had an epi and then needed an episiotomy (Bub got shoulder dystocia, and needed to be pulled free).
We almost lost her, but she pulled through with Erbs palsy in her right arm, the left one was broken. I'm not sure about after care, I was too worried about Bub, but I do remember stitches and getting up to have a shower.
Next Bub is going to be a c section (we haven't set the date yet but the doctors and I agree ).

Yes, first birth was a standard 'elective' c/section for a breech baby.

I'm having my first bub in two weeks, I'm having an elective c-section for medical reasons. It's the farthest thing from the drug free natural birth i'd planned.

Our first baby had passed away so we we're induced. I also had a managed third stage - but wasn't aware until I read my records 3 months later...

I suppose I did, I had an internal, (not s&s, just an internal), on the Friday at 9.30am and dd was born at 5.11pm on the Saturday. This is what I believed kick started labour as I was already 3 cms.
I also had a managed third stage. This was hospital policy, I was given the injection without ever knowingly consenting. I also had a pph though, so I think that policy states that in the case of pph, injection is considered as the best way to slow pph.
