C Section Complications Uterine Inversion At Birth
After a Uterine Inversion is it safer to deliver vaginally or by C-section? Especially if you went into shock and had emergency surgery?
Un-invert it: Hopefully you will be attended by an Ob/Gyn or midwife who knows what to do. In general,a uterine inversion can be prevented by not putting a lot of traction on the umbilical cord after birth. When a uterine inversion happens, the first thing to do is to immediatly fix it by putting pressure on the inverted fundus. If this doesn't work, meds or surgery are used. Best wishes! ...Read more

Doc says I have septum/unicorn uterus and there is a 99% chance I can't give birth vaginally. (Had 1 csection already) what does this mean?
Bicornuate uterus: Women with unicornate uterus cannot carry a pregnancy to term, I assume you are talking about "Bicornuate or septate uterus" since you already went through one pregnancy. Bicornuate uterus has 2 cavities and in a septate uterus, your uterine cavity is divided by a septum, these can be differentiated by imaging studies like MRI. Some women deliver vaginally, please discuss with your OBGyn. ...Read more

Several issues: A woman has a limit to the size of baby that can be delivered naturally that varies with the size & shape of her pelvis.

Mothers blood pressure may increase a lot in labor & become risky to her but come down if baby is delivered. ...Read more

Discuss these issues with your obstetrician. ...Read more
