Ok so heres the deal. With my first son I had a c-section because he was facing the wrong way. Now i am pregnant 39+ weeks and still not feeling any contractions. Is it a good thing having an induction if you had a previous C section or not??? As the doctor booked me for another caesarean, after two weeks time of my due date, I really want to deliver this time naturally and I don t want to go through another C section. And are there any risks of having an induced birth in this case???

I had an emergncy section - followed by planned induction at 38 weeks to ensure I was in a safe place when I went into labour, just in case of any issues with the previous scar.
It was fine!

Thanks tinkerbell28 for your reply, i have already asked her and she told me about the increase the risk of rupture. but she also told me to come back next week so she break my water. i just can t understand that
#3
If you are induced you are more likely to have a c section.
#4
really????
#5
I cant see why there should be any problem,they would have mentioned this before? I havnt had a section tho. I was induced with my 1st child, and my labour was much better than 2nd lol!

Best of Luck! I loved the last weeks of pregnancy, Its really exciting getting ready to meet your new baby :)

only of baby becomes distressed though? I think the chances are higher when having an induction, but dont worry..... it could go perfectly fine!!
I had a brilliant induction labour :thumbsup:

thanks girls for your reply

If they were going to do a pre planned C-Section wouldn't it been better to do it early on,I always hear of the elective ones done at around 38 weeks,but maybe there a reason in your case they want to do it later on. Ask more questions.

Some women do have a vbac-s ,it is possible and they would recommend you to stay in main unit to give birth.

i am also wondering if they break my water are they going to send me home or i am going to stay in the hospital as my doctor haven t mentioned nothing to me
#10
Bounty.com is a brilliant website for asking Q's like this. Its a great forum on there, It helped me so much when pregnant with my 2, even now, I pop on for advice :)
#11

#12

Please please please push for a C section and not the membrane sweep. My wife had very bad experience - near death, and the C section *could* have prevented that :)

Thanks bassman_uk, i am really scared i dont know what is the best and what is not as i am dying to deliver it naturally. i am lost right now

my wife was upset at not delivering naturally for her first birth, and then when it came to the second she was told that the risk was the same for either natural or C section. On hindsight, the C section would have prevented the scar tearing and the placental abruption. I nealry lost her and my daughter. Wife recovered fine, but daughter has severe Cerebral Palsy due to lack of oxygen at birth.

The best advice is to do whatever you feel comfortable or safe with - these things are different every time, we were just really unlucky :-(
#16
the doctor explained to me both options of having C section and VBAC and also about the negative and positive point of each one of them but never said to me that is the best option, she just let me choose.

They won't push you down one route or another. At the hospital where my daughters were born, the y now strongly advise a C section after a previous one, but thats as far as they will go.

as I said, go with your gut instinct - it won't let you down :)

and thanks a gain for your advice

Pesonally my OB told me to have a csection second time around, he was not fussy which but when pushed he said csection had the edge for him. Plus I was at risk of PPH anyhow.


he was wise :)

follow you survival instinct and you'll be fine :friends:

When the water gone,it's usually time for hospital,so if you get you get waters broken in hospital then you tend to stay there.

Hope it goes well for you whatever you decide.

I'm waiting for mine to turn out of breech at moment,I'll be having a lot of questions myself in another 12weeks if it's not turned,thats what the hospital and consultant are there for,ask away as much as you like to get best possible situation for you and the baby.

How many weeks are you? as mine he just turned around he was breech until 37+weeks, they send me to a third scan in 38+ to double check but he turned around.

Yeah the chances are higher of having a c section if the labour is induced. I was induced and was given drugs to bring on the labour but nothing really happened until they broke my waters they kept me in hospital and i had my daughter 12 hours later..by c section though.
#27
Yes, i'm afraid that induced babies rarely play ball and some have to be delivered by c section. How long is it since your previous section???
In my area a long as two years have elapsed they like you to have the option of going into labour naturally UNLESS there was something else that caused the section, placenta previa or whatever. They will then decide on how this one progresses and leave you two weeks over to start naturally, then they will take you in for a bit of gentle persuasion.

Be 25 wks this Saturday,plenty of time I'm told,everyone says it will turn,hope they right!

There no point me making any def decisions for another 10 weeks what to do yet if baby has not.I know what can be tried and so on but not made no decision yet as no point at moment thinking about it.

I would prefer to avoid a C-Section,I not had 1 before with the other 2,but will go with what hospital say.
#29
I've been induced 3 times, took a while but they all came out lol.

First baby was 12 days late, induced and arrived 20 hours later.

Second baby was 14 days late, induced and arrived 3.5 hours later.

Third baby was 10 days late, induced and arrived 12 hours later.

I know someone who had a C section and had a normal 2nd birth just a couple months ago.
#30
Hi! I had a c-section with my 1st, as he was breech, and then was 2 weeks late with my second so had to be induced, everything went ok but they did have to keep a close eye on me, and thank god for epidurals!!!
#31
I had three normal births, an emergancy c-section and a planned c-section.

I'd be happy with the planned c-section and the safe arrival of baby if I were you.

Not worth taking the risks.....

Ask your consultant if you are unsure x x x
#32
now i havent read the full thread so dont know if anyone has mentioned it (im usually last behind all the helpful ones ha ha)

they wont (or this is what they told me) induce after a section due to increased risks they will let you go naturally

most importantly i hope everything goes well for you and the baby :-)
#33
thanks a lot for all your advice, i will defenitly ask the doctor again to make sure i am in the right track, before doing anything, hopefully she will tell me what to do.
#34
How are you, any news???
#35
today is my due date and still not feeling any contractions :( . i reallly really don t want to go through another c section.

Don't think they doing a C-section planned now cos you wouldn't been left to your due date,I always thought they have had you in a week or 2 before due date.
You'll be ok,hardly any babies come on due date anyway,things might get started at weekend for you. If you do start had you been advised to go in straight away?
#37
Any twinges yet???? bumpy road and a curry perhaps.
#38

#39
