I've always wondered... what happens if you go into labor earlier than your scheduled date? I guess for induction and vag birth, it's not a big deal, but just to assure your doc is there or someone knows your history... but with the c/sec moms who may not be good candidates for a VBAC, what do they do? Or is it just that they *hope* you have a long enough labor to get you in for the c/sec? My labors are ungodly fast, so I guess I'm coming from that point of view.

I've always been curious about this.

with my doula clients, if a scheduled c-section momma goes in to labor before her surgery day, they usually go ahead with the c-section. i have had a couple mommas walk in a 8-10cm and decide last minute to vbac, but they usually have a Dr. there or will give meds to slow contractions until Dr. gets there and just go ahead and do the cesarean

OMG I would be über ticked if I was 8-10 and they gave me a csection. Ugh!

I have no input though because I'm not in that situation.

Yeah, they will just section you when you go into labor. That is what I was told when I was discussing VBAC vs Repeat Section.

My friends who have had repeat c/s have just had the c/s done right then if they went into labor at that time.

With my inductions, it's always been "induce on ______ day, unless you go into labor sooner," which I never have, unfortunately. I'd LOVE to go into labor before...but not too much before. lol

I'm a scheduled section mama and I guess I haven't really put too much thought into this. I know it's possible to go into labor beforehand I just don't want to think about it. I'd probably freak out!

Well, I hope everyone here has their dream birth, so c/sec, induced or waiting for things to start on their own that it all works out with no medical surprises!

The local hospital here has a policy against VBACs, so I would assume they'd do the c-section. That being said, if my water broke and I was in labor, I'd try to walk around the parking lot until the last minute and force the vbac. I mean, after all that work, why bother with the c-section? Clearly at that point, my body is telling me things are good to go.

I am a scheduled repeat section Mommy and I'm concerned because they are scheduling it for 39 weeks but both of my prior children have been delivered at 36, almost 37 weeks. Although the first was induction due to pre-eclampsia the second was due to an abruption. I just hope this time I don't have any medical issues that force them to do an emergency section sooner. I was kind of looking forward to having a more calm, enjoyable experience this time.
