So a friend of mine is pregnant with her fourth She has had three csections prior...

Her OB is now trying to scare her into allowing them to do a section at 36-37 weeks because they told her she is at risk of uterine rupture and they want baby out ASAP...

Please can u ladies help me compile info and sites to help convince her not to go so early!?!?!?l

I just googled real quick and this article came up. I'm sure there are people here that have some great websites, but this puts it in lay mans terms. I don't know if its effective enough though...

This is about Uterine rupture...
Uterine Rupture in Pregnancy: eMedicine Obstetrics and Gynecology

Several factors are known to increase the risk of uterine rupture, but, even in high-risk subgroups, the overall incidence of uterine rupture is low.
A recent meta-analysis of 17 studies including 5,666 patients undergoing a TOL after 2 or more cesarean deliveries demonstrated a 1.36% uterine rupture rate.67 This is similar to the result of our pooled data analysis from 10 studies published from 1993-2010, which shows a 1.81% uterine rupture rate for patients with multiple previous cesarean delivery scars
This is with a trial of labor (TOL). So even if she didn't feel comfortable with that, she could at least schedule her c/s later in pregnancy. But if she happen to go into labor prior to that the risk is still low.

Thank you Kiliki for my wonderfull siggie!

I'll have to look for the article but babies brains at 35/36 weeks are only 2/3 the size of at 40 weeks. That's still a lot of growing and developing to do!

Oh I do hope she waits!!! Babies come when they are ready... I am so sorry she is being pressured right now. I do hope she decides to wait and let her body go into labor naturally. ((HUGS))
