I would realky appreciate them.

Im booked un to Arrowe park on 2.12 for my fourth c section after a horrendous and frankly traumatic experience with my third at Liverpool women's.
It was just a litany of errors from start to finish, basically they had the wrong blood type noted down as soon as i entered theatre (thank God i spotted it on the board) although they didnt believe that it was incorrect initially (!)
Then a novice anaesthetist did my spinal and couldn't place it correctly which wss agony.
Spinal wss ineffective so once my daughter was delivered they gave me s general anaesthetic as i was in so much pain.

I feel as if i was disbelieved and my every concern was minimised and dismissed. I didnt even receive a cursory apology.
The theatre staff told my OH that i was being hystetical despite the fact that id managed to havey two previous sections without resorting to hysteria 😡

Suffice to say that despite moving to another hospital whi ate aware of my fears i am absolutely bloody petrified.

Do any of you have any positive experiences of c sections which have gone well following negative experiences or when you've been scared but its all gone well?

Just anything at all to calm me a little?

Thank you if you got to the end of this.

So sorry to hear you had such a rubbish time. Sounds awful.

I had an EMCS with DS and am scheduled for an elective this Fri with DD.

The rest of my labour and everything leading up to the section with DS was horrific but, if it helps at all, the surgery itself was the best bit. As soon as they decided to do the section, everything was oK. I felt well looked after while in theatre and afterwards, the staff were v kind to me (was terrified by this point) and to DH too. Hence I am opting for an elective at the same hospital this time.

You're at a different hospital and am sure the experience will be v different and, hopefully, better. Wishing you lots of luck!

Gosh I'm not surprised your feeling worried! What an awful experience for you. I have only had one c section, but was really really concerned about the spinal. Prior to realising I would need elcs I had said I definitely don't want a spinal or epidural. The whole concept of a needle in the spine scared the living crap out of me.

However, it really was fine, and despite me having an expected bad reaction to it, this was soon under control and ds was born swiftly and easily. I also had a great recovery. Good luck and hope you have a better experience this time.
