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

Any complications: in your first three pregnancies? You have an increased risk of Down syndrome, approximately 1%,because of maternal age. However you may ask for a fetal DNA analysis in your blood from 10 weeks on which can be sent overnight to 1 of 4 laboratories in the with results in 4 to 7 days. The risk of a false positive is less than 1 in 1000, and should be confirmed by amniocentesis or CVS. ...Read more

Lower back pain can't sit or stand straight sometimes spases out C-section 1 month ago history of lower back pain never been to dr. Tohave looked at thanks.

Lower back pain can't sit or stand straight sometimes spases out C-section 1 month ago history of lower back pain never been to dr. Tohave looked at thanks.

It : It is hard to say what is causing the back pain, given the limited history, but if it is so severe, it is something you should definitely see your primary care doctor for. Some of my thoughts are: 1. Whether back pain started after epidural anesthesia. Is there an infection. 2.Another thing is low back pain from pregnancy could be from the way your pelvic bones are realigned due to the way fetus sat in the pelvis, but this is unlikely if you have not had any back pain during pregnancy. I hope this is helpful. But my sincere advice to you is to see your doctor to be evalauted for back pain. Congratulations on your new baby! it is hard to be in so much pain on the top of being a new mother. ...Read more

If a mother has a history of genital herpes, what are the odds of a baby having birth defects both for c-section and vaginal birth?

If a mother has a history of genital herpes, what are the odds of a baby having birth defects both for c-section and vaginal birth?

Mild increased risk.: Genital herpes is of major concern when a primary infection develops immediately before/during/after labor. In those rare cases, vertical transmission of the pathogenic virus to the neonate can occur with vaginal delivery via the infected birth canal - but birth defects are not anticipated (only if first trimester transplacental infection). In chronic carriers, the risk of transmission is very low. ...Read more

Does being induced increase risk of c-section?

Does being induced increase risk of c-section?

Not if done properly: And for the right reason. Many of my pts want to be induced. Induction can lower the c-section rate by delivering the baby before it is too large for you, or before the placenta gets too old or the umbilical cord gets too tight or if the baby had a meconium bowel movement., before it becomes too thick. I have never had a pt that regretted being induced. Recent study showed 39-40 wks ideal time. ...Read more
