What was the reason that you had to have or choose to have a c section?

I had a c/s with my DD because her heartrate kept dropping during contractions, I never dilated past 5, she wouldn't drop, she was sunny side up, and had a double nuchal cord.

Lots of small things added up to having my c/s!

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

I am going to be having a c section due to complications from my Vaginal Birth with my DS.

I had fourth degree tears and an Episiotomy. I tore from the inside out and then had to be cut twice. I have damage to my perineum and rectal wall that prevent future vaginal births. I have had to meet with reconstructive surgeons and after I am done with children I will have to have vaginal/ pelvic reconstruction.

My Ob told me that a C section will be much easier on my body that DS's birth was.

First one was premature rupture and failure to dilate. Next one was failure to dilate after 36hr. This one will be scheduled due to the first two and steroid dependent asthma

My son's c/s was because I stopped dialating at 8cm and his shoulders were turned diagonally and he wasn't facing the right way.

I had a c/s because of a swollen cervex. While my dr was doing the c/s he noticed my pelvis was too small for her to fit through anyways

With my son, his heart rate kept dropping dangerously and I was having trouble dilating, so they didn't think he could handle going through the amount of contractions that would be necessary for him to be born vaginally.

I was going to attempt a VBAC with this one, but I'm not dilated at all and considering I'm having contractions, just not dilating, my midwife doesn't think that I'll be able to give birth vaginally. My c-section is scheduled for Monday, the 24th.

I had a c/section because Megan was breech from 29wks until I delivered at 36wks 6 days. I also have a unicornate uterus that would have made a version basically useless to do.

I had a C/S because I was not dilating and Maddy's heartrate was dropping rapidly.

Will never forget the two angels that left us way to soon. Gone before I could hear there little heart beats. July 4, 2008 and March 9, 2009.

I couldn't push her out. I guess she was sunnyside and my contractions weren't close enough together.

Gaby - they tried for 2 days to induce me and I wouldn't even get to 1cm dilated.. I asked for a c/s & they booked me in for the Thursday morning... the Wednesday night my waters broke & there was a lot of meconium present, so I ended up having my c/s at 1am on the Thursday morning.

Emersyn - I opted for a c/s right from the start, I had anxiety issues which prevented me from even considering a VBAC, and I don't regret the decision, because it all went very smoothly, and was a really lovely experience... As it was, a c/s was recommended for me because my epilepsy had started playing up again (it was dormant with Gaby) - and they were afraid that if I tried a VBAC the stress of labour would give me a seizure
