    Default Elective C-Section Sutherland Hospital

    Hi😊 I had an emergency c-section with my first at Sutherland Hospital as a public patient. The Dr told me to book a c-section in if I wanted another baby. I'm currently 15 weeks pregnant with my 2nd & am going to Sutherland again as a public patient. Have any other mums had an elective c-section at Sutherland as a public patient? I didn't think I was able to...do they prefer you to attempt a VBAC? Id rather another c-section after the failed labour & complications I had last time. Thanks😊

    Hi Elly81,

    I can't see much of a response to your question, but I'm wondering what your experience was?

    I'm currently pregnant with baby #3 and will have an elective caesarean also as I had one with baby #2 after a bad labour from baby#1. I had a c-section last time without any hassles down the south coast and was able to choose from 4 OBs in the area who saw public patients. Was this the case with Sutherland? Were you happy with the care?

    Hope everything went well.

    Lex

    I'd be really surprised if Sutherland allowed an elective ( for no medical reason) as a public patient. They very much encourage natural birth. At our prenatal classes, they made a big point of explaining how many more staff are required for a c section than for natural birth.

    I don't know specifics for Sutherland, but if you've had a previous caesarean then it shouldn't be an issue having an elective repeat caesarean. Once you have a scar on your uterus it's your choice to repeat the caesar or attempt a VBAC. They can't force you either way (unless there were complications last time which would make it incredibly risky to a VBAC, but even then they can't force you).

    Although my cesarean was called "elective" is was due to medical reasons -my first labour resulted in a bad recovery from a bad 3c tear (went straight into surgery) and my muscles didn't recover fully from the tear so i have an an elevated chance of incontinence if i tear again. The OBs at the hospital also told me to have a caesaren next time. That was deemed reason enough but because i could still go natural if I was willing to take the risk, it's considered elective.

    I had my 'elective' cesarean 5 weeks ago at Sutherland & all went perfectly! Mine was an elective repeat caesar & no one once questioned it. I was actually told to have another one after my last birth resulted in a failure to progress during labour. The surgeon told me that my pelvis is very narrow & my poor bub was stuck. I only made it to 3cm after being in labour for more than a day & being induced. It was horrendous! I would have opted for a repeat anyway. Good luck to all who are currently pregnant💗
