Baby Caesarean Section
Too soon : It's too soon to determine the need for a c section at 33 weeks. Your baby could still change its position over the next 5-6 weeks. If your baby remains transverse or becomes breech late in pregnancy, you will need a c section. However, it is simply too early to tell right now. Discuss this with your obgyn. Good luck! ...Read more
Discuss these: concerns with your obstetrician. Knowledge is power. Take care. ...Read more
Very definitely: Unfortunately, placenta accreta is often diagnosed at the time post delivery when a cotyledon(plug) of placenta is missing or the placenta itself does not detach normally. At that point, aggressive measures to 'detach" the placenta may result in massive hemorrhage and the resultant post apocalyptic diagnosis of placenta accreta. ...Read more

Yes: Babies can be delivered vaginally even over 10 lbs. Some larger babies may cause difficulty with delivery however. Do not rely on the estimated size to determine if the baby can be delivered vaginally as size estimates in the 3rd trimester can be inaccurate. Rely on your obstetrician's experience! ...Read more
28 wks pregnant, previous c section, placenta anterior, no acretta now- placenta is 4cm above c section scar. Could acretta still develop at this pt?
1 c-section, 1 vbac, 2+ years after c-section. During vbac, i had 60% placenta abruption, discovered after delivery. Mama and baby are fine 1 yr later. Risks for future vbacs if we get pregnant again?
You need to see MD: To identify your risk there are many questions and answers needed. There is a risk assessment questionnaire that your md will do and help you understand your risk. ...Read more
Risks of uterine rupture? Had a c section 4 months ago and pregnant 7 weeks. Been advised to terminate pregnancy
I hv 2 babies all by C-section need to know can skipping rope is good to loose weight or it isnt for c section?
Very short perineum. Family history of big babies (>9lbs). Don't want to risk serious tear and damage. Can i ask for c-section? Terrified of natural!
You can ask.: Prelabor cesarean section by maternal request accounts for at least 5% of all cesarean sections in the U.S. At this time. Many obstetricians object to this, but most will be fine with such a request and honor it after appropriate counseling, especially if you are only planning to have 1-2 children. Talk to your obstetrician - and good luck! ...Read more
Want C-section and tubes tied but was told i can't since my babies where born vagnally y is that?
An infant born premature through C-section who never cried; mri: http://bit.Ly/12eymz7 which says profound hypoxic ischaemic injury. How to deal?
No easy answer: So profoundly sorry to here about your baby. There are never any easy answers here. I have seen miracle babies in this situation, but as likely is a baby with a lifetime of challenges, dependency and need. You need to sit down with neonatologist, a pediatric neurologist and have a frank and open discussion about what lies ahead for you and this child. There is not a one size fits all answer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Late 30s. Can i somehow avoid C-section for this and the 2 next pregnancies i'm hoping for? Really want to labor & have vaginal delivery for my babies
VBAC: If you've never had a c-section, then unless there is trouble during delivery then vaginal birth should be expected. If you've had a previous c-section then there is controversy about following deliveries and the safety of a vaginal birth. Many obs will default for repeat c-sections because the risk of uterine rupture and other serious complications are high in subsequent pregnancies. ...Read more
Is it good to conceive after 3months of having a preterm baby through c-section. I have been pregnant twice and in both, i lost the babies. I'm eager to conceive again.
I am almost 36 weeks pregnant and I am having horrible back pain and a lot of vaginal pressure. Is this normal? Previous babies were C-section
Mother is obese52 lb weight gain, has GD, Pre-eclampsia, male infant, EFA at 35W4D, 8lbs. Fundal height 4 weeks ahead. C-section or vaginal??
Yes, but concerns: Vaginal birth after c section = vbac, is often medically possible. After a c-section, the uterus has a scar from healing, that is the major concern. Even though the scar may not look bad before the uterus stretches, as your uterus expands for the growing fetus, the scarred area may become thin, with higher risk of tearing during contractions. Some hospitals decide that the legal risks are too high. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends: C-section is a major surgery. Hospital discharge depends on the health of mom and baby independently. Typically if all is well with mom and baby, discharge is usually on hospital day #2 or #3. In some cases, mom may be discharged before the baby but the reverse is rare. Good health. ...Read more
NSVD vs C/sec: Most c sections are done during labor when indications either on behalf of mother or baby require it. These include failure to progress for the mom and fetal distress for the baby as well as some others. Assume vaginal delivery, unless another bit of information comes to light prior to labor. ...Read more
Likely: How many cesareans a woman can have really depends on how she heals and her tissue. The biggest concern is that the placenta doesn't pull away from the uterus after baby is born and then massive bleeding occurs and you need a hysterectomy. That's the biggest concern. 2nd is injury to bladder or bowel due to scar tissue. You might consider having your tubes tied while doctor is doing cesarean? ...Read more
Defer to Doctor: Given that we have no health history for your baby the answer for you specifically will have to come from her pediatrician. ...Read more
Possibly: Talk to your obstetrician. The main concern is that the head and body will not fit through the pelvis and be able to be delivered naturally. A frank discussion with your obstetrician before labor will help you sort out what is best for you and the child. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: 1st, speak with your ob. She/he will know your history the best and know how the surgery (c-section) was performed. It is usually recommended to wait at leat 2 years between pregnancies for several reasons. If the uterus was closed in one layer instead of 2 (the operative note should reveal this), there is a greater risk of uterine rupture during labor and that can be life-threatening 2u and baby. ...Read more
NO: If the doctor made a vertical csection in your uterus( skin does not matter whether it was vertical) then labor is contra-indicated because there is too much chance of uterine rupture which can be catastrophic for you and the baby, please discuss with your obgyn before you get pregnant. ...Read more
Yes: There is controversy about this question. Some Ob/Gyns will perform elective c/sections without an indication (reason) other than your wishes. Others won't. Some insurance companies won't pay for a c/section without a medical reason and others will. If you really want a c/section it is fairly easy to find a doc that will do it for you if you search for one. ...Read more
