I don't even want to think about it! The only thing that could go wrong is me needing a csection or being induced. Either way the only thing I can do once that happens is literally have a csection or be induced LOL. Nothing I can do
Our policy is to get as much information about our options as possible and to request a couple of moments by ourselves to weigh our options. We also have the support of our Bradley teacher - we know we can call her at any time to help think through options.
Birth is usually not cut and dry. You usually have decisions to make about options that are available - whether it's when to induce or by what means to induce or whether to try some other options before needing a c-section, there are a lot of times decisions that you have to make during birth that can change the outcome. That's why we've spent so much time preparing ourselves ahead of time for the possibilities. Now in an emergency situation, sometimes there is only one option, and we know what we would choose in an emergency.

I like to think I have clauses in my plan to handle the unexpected. I have expressed my beliefs with my bf about if things arent going right, what I do want done. So I am trying to see all possible outcomes. I think this case is where bf will shine. He is VERY good at rolling with the punches and improvising to make the best of a situation.
I think I'd be okay with a less than perfect birth. Until recently I was expecting that anyway, since with an OB I wouldn't have been able to deliver in a tub, and I figured I'd have to put up a bit of a fight over some of the things I do/do not want. So even though now I'm with a midwife and if everything goes well I should get the birth I want, I've already prepared myself for things not going exactly how I want them.
Although I am not ready for a C-section. Avoiding one was a huge part of my original motivation for a natural birth. But if that's how my baby ends up needing to come out, I'm okay with that, I'm just not ready for it x)
