Hello everyone. I had an emergency c-section 18 months ago after my DS got into distress. So next time, I would really like to have an elective section in case the same thing happens again but I have heard that a lot of consultants in Holles St won't agree to it unless there is a medical problem. Has anyone else found this and how did you get around it?
Say you were traumatised by the whole labour and our Mentally not sure you could take the risk again.
I had a word after my labour with consultant basically 3rd degree tear did have a vaginal birth but was re stitched 3mth later and even though I did dialate etc he told me he'd recommend a section the next time.
I was told if you are a private patient, flash the cash at the consultant and he will usually do it for you....not sure how much extra it costs. I am going for the natural delivery method though, I think I'd be more scared of a c-section than a natural birth, but that's just me and I'm a first-timer so I am green with cluelessness!
I was at the rotunda semi private and requested a section after a traumatic delivery on the first which invloved shoulder dystocia and forceps.
They were fine at first when i requested it and said no problem but then 2 days before i was due they were all questioning why i was doing it and made me paranoid. Even down to when i went in for the op they were asking why i was having it! They really dont seem to like doing them. TBH i would have gone natural if i hadnt had those problems.
I would have said if you already had a section there would be no problem for you asking for one this time...........
