C section

Dec 5th, 2012, 17:55 PM   #1
 
Iv got bad neck problems and I'm praying that its just due to the pregnancy. Coz of this the hospital have given me the option to have a c section.

A bit scared as no it can cause more problems than normal labour

I know it's not the same but I have quite bad back problems (with the discs in my lower back) and gave birth naturally. What kind of problems do you have? I'd def weigh up the pros and cons if I was you hon xx

They think it might be spasmodic torticollis, I have been in pain and in bed since Sep (also in hospital for a week and had MRI scan) so it's bad and very scary

Well I have had 3 c-sections, soon to be 4 and only the first was traumatic but I think that's because I had been in labour for 3 days and it was an emergency.

Honestly don't worry about c-sections! They are not as bad as you think and my elective ones have been calm, peaceful and dare I say it, enjoyable! recovery afterwards has also been fine.

If it's best for you and little one then have the section, I can assure you it's really not that bad xxx

I think the only horror story's you tend to hear are those from people who have had emergency sections, those are more traumatic because they usually follow a failed labour for one reason or another and the mother is usually already stressed and traumatised.

Elective sections really are different and I can't stress enough that you really needn't worry. I doubt you will read horror story's about planned c-sections.

Put it this way, if they were that bad would I be on my fourth and remember JJmum on here? she is currently ttc her 5th child that will be her 5th c-section

All that matters is bubs and your health no matter what kind of delivery you have xxx

A c section is such a calm peaceful way to give birth. I've had three and have no complaints at all. You're only in bed for 10-12 hours maximum and after that I found it really easy to get myself about. (I got up after 5 hours last time, I don't advise it at all). Honestly not bad at all! Xx

Also after watching "One born every minute" I am actually glad I have c-sections! I am such a wimp I don't know how the heck I would cope with a natural labour lol xxx

thank you so much girls, I feel so much better now - I understand the hospital have to let u know all the scary stuff and it is counted as a major op (that also freaked me out) but its good to hear from others who have had them and are fine x

I had a emergency c-section and as tambo said it's can, and for me was traumatic as I had a 36 hour labour after a failed induction. having said that the recovery was fairly easy, was up and about in days I had to keep reminding myself to slow down.

this time I am refusing the induction and if needs be will opt for a section as I know my experience before was a rarity and electives are so much calmer

I had 12 hour labour then an emergency c section, the c section was fine, my husband says I was really calm, laughing and joking- I think that's just how I dealt with it but it really was fine and recovery was brilliant, u have nothing to worry about xx

I was petrified of having a section - was adamant it wouldn't happen to me. Day 2 of induction, they broke my waters and found DD was breech. Had what they classed as emergency section but I had to wait 4 hours to let my dinner digest. Didn't feel like an emergency or panic. Recovery was great - only pain for me was not driving for 6 weeks.
Hoping this time consultant will let me give birth naturally in mw led unit at hospital but if I go overdue again or this LO is breech a section would be fine.
A friend had an emergency section first and elective second. She said it was great, had hair and nails and waxing done the day before. Went in with full make up. Felt refreshed after night in own bed and looked great for the first pics with baby!
After 2 day induction I did not look great in my pics - mind you would I have looked worse after a natural labour??
