Now just have the debate tomorrow for why I want another c-section. I think consultant wants me to have a VBAC. Purely for psychological reasons I mentally just need to know this is another section.

Any advice?

Hi Mossy,

That's great news. Try to hold firm for another section if that's what you want....

Congratulations Mossy! YOUVE MADE IT, WOOHOO! Very Happy
When are they planning on delivering the baby??? If a c-section is what you want then i agree with Jules, hold firm and dont let them push you into doing something you dont want.
Well donehon, keep us updated!

Take care

If your instinct is telling you go for a C section Mossy, then stand firm.

You know Im a big believer in instinct...its what helps us to protect ourselves.

Keep us posted.

I'm hoping to get a date for a c-section tomorrow after consultant's appointment.

I'm not a 'too proud to push' person but for various reason honestly feel a c-section is the best route for me. I feel as though I am in control of this one. As unlikely as it is I can't get it out of my mind that I could develop PE or have BP issues in labour and then whisked off for a c-section. Even under GA and again not see my baby to start with.

If I was to list my reasons for wanting a c-section you'd think I was being silly. A lot of them are psychological- but do have a focus of me being in control!

I feel I recovered really well last time from my c-section. fair enough I didn't have a newborn to look after but I did recover well.

Not silly at all my reasons for a section were all about control so I fully understand a controlled section is way better than an emergency. My lucy section was good and the recovery amazing so I made the right decision absolutely. Take care e
