Okay. That gives me a bit of reassurance. I really want to avoid having another section, the hospital have already said they wont induce with me having a previous section, so if I go "over-due" then its a section
btw, normal gestation is 38 - 42 weeks so 41 isn't overdue. It's up to you, they can't make you have a c-section before you want one. They'll monitor you more closely in weeks 40 and 41 if you want to wait a bit longer. I think they can be a bit keen with planned c-sections don't be afraid to fight back a bit.
Mmmm, interesting. My first was a c-section at 40+4, second was a vbac at 40+4, third a vbac 40+1. I don't remember anyone mentioning that I couldn't be induced. Am pregnant with fourth and they seem very relaxed this time, no-one has really mentioned c-section yet but I will check about being induced.
Janus - Some PCT's will induce and some won't. I believe the stronger contractions caused by the induction drug are more likely to put strain on your scar so the chances of a uterine rupture are higher.
What term do they class as overdue? 40+7, 40+10 or 40+14? You can always elect to have monitoring, they will scan to check amniotic fluid levels and blood flow through the cord/placenta.
IME, focus on having a good positive VBAC, not the posible section.
