I had a emergency C-Sec with our 1st child. After high blood pressure and queried pre-eclampsia on week of due date I was booked to be induced at 41+1. After 12 hours and 6m dilated I was rushed off for c-sec as my son was showing signs of distress.
TTC baby #2 but something I'm already anxious about is the birth. Don't know wether to just request a C-Sec incase there's complications again or hope I can have natural birth I would love.
Did anyone have to have an emergency c sec after complications/baby in distress 1st time but fine with subsequent labours?
Not personally, but my best friend did (first baby distressed and she stopped dilating). Second baby natural labour, drug free, and means she can (hopefully!) have a VB for baby 3 as she would have had to have CS for third if had 2 CS already.
Why not look into planning a VBAC but ask for CS rather than induction if necessary?
I had an EMCS after induced labour of 36 hours. I was fully dilated and pushed for three hours. Then - because I was in distress baby still fine - they tried ventouse then forceps - but DD1 was star gazing and had to be pushed up so I could have the CS. Midwife and the consultant have agreed to an elective CS on the basis my EMCS happened after everything else failed. Sounds like you might be able to go for a VBAC. Wish I could
