Rarely will a doctor schedule a c-section for a reason like this. C-sections are very risky and any reputable doctor will not perform one out of convenience.

I would really urge you not to go this route, personally. The benefits of a vaginal birth are so immense. If you can physically have a vaginal birth, you really should.

I know it's a really tough call. I can understand how badly you both want to witness the birth of your child together, but it may not be easy to do so if you have to find a doctor who will give you a c-section for the reason you've described.

How many hours away will your husband be? For first labours, you usually have a lot of time between when labour starts and when baby arrives. There's a very good chance he'd be able to make it home on time for the birth!

Good luck either way!
