Perhaps an induction at 39 weeks reduces these risks but still makes it unlikely for you to go into spontaneous labour at home and not make it to hospital.
    I truly did listen, and have done plenty of research.
    But for me the risks of going spontaneously before 39wks far out way the c section, special care stay risks.

    Hun not meaning to downplay your concerns. Just wondering if being so worried and all you're the best one (as opposed to the doctors) to assess the risk/decide what the best cut-off for induction is?

    No I'm not the best one to assess whether I should be Induced or not. I'm emotional, probably irrational, probably overly terrified of having my 3 children watch thier mother bleed to death on the bathroom floor. BUT when the people who did go to medical school to be the best to assess whether I should be Induced aren't even talking to me about my concerns, simply dismissing them and treating me like every other pregnant women, I believe that I AM the best person at this point in time.

    Is it possible to see a private ob? Not nec for the birth but a consult... If ur concerns are thought to warrant an induction privately u know to keep pushing publically. Also sometimes a 'review' by a private ob will help u to get what u want....Ultimately the public system should give in if u want something reasonable and they are concerned that if they barge ahead if anything goes wrong u will sue them. So u need to stay sounding reasonable but firm.... The last patient who saw my hubby for just that a 'consult' who was going publically and had been denied her wish, got it after he said he would oblige since she understood pro and cons. (He's an ob). She had previously been denied at 2 pub hospitals .

    I am sorry you are going through this. I am not sure which state you are in but If you are in QLD I believe you can invoke Ryan's rule in this kind of situation. It exists to help patients who don't believe their medical concerns are being taken seriously. Not sure about the other states though sorry but I would assume there would be similar protocols in place.
    I hope you get some kind of resolution after meeting with the senior consultant.

    I think after Tuesday I will hopefully have some better answers, if not I will be looking into what steps to take next.

    HAHA!! no induction for me
    4-5cm from 7am-10am.
    Don't you love the world works
    Thanks everyone for the advice, I think it relaxed me enough to go into labour all by myself

    Labour fizzled out. 😖
    Got to Birth Suite, contracting well, as I said in pp got to 4/5 cm (all of which in the assesment room then father's room) then was told that if I was going to give birth now it'd be in the assesment room shower as they didn't even have a spare assesment room bed.
    Completely psyched me out of labour, contractions stopped as of yesterday morning and I went from 4/5 soft and stretchy to 2 long and not very soft.... which is where I have remained with bugger all contractions and no real sign of going any further.
    BUT on a plus note, have induction booked for Sunday 🖒🖒
    Got a second opinion from a senior consultant who was amazing and couldn't understand why I wasn't being listened to. The only reason it's for Sunday is because they are all booked until then :/
    I've decided to stay with in laws closer to town.
    Hubby will drive out to farm in the morning and do a bit of work. Fingers crossed he remembers to keep checking his phone to make sure it's in service :/
    It's all been a bit exhausting now. I've just spent 3 days trying to keep labour going and now I am going to try and keep it from happening for the next 4... *sigh*
    Thanks for checking in 😊
