I had emergency section last time when induction failed and DS was born 16 days overdue. This time I want an elective section and I have some fight on my hands. She doesn't want to do it before 41 weeks. She is very nice though. I also have been seen a good bit both times by Shane Higgins and he is extremely nice and very good. When in delivery last time the consultant on call was Stephen Carroll and he decided on my section and he seemed very nice, although I didn't see him for long. Dr Foley is very good but has an appalling manner, so I would avoid him.
