7 thoughts on “A Mother’s Intuitive Choice to Have a Cesarean at 42 1/2 Weeks

  1. I also had a planned Ceasar for my second child, he was Frank Breech and had the cord wrapped around him all over. When my Doctor (who was supportive of any decision i made) Did the Delivery, he told me that I had so many fibroid tumors that my uterus probably would not have made strong enough contractions to birth him Natural anyway. I was at peace and not afraid at all to have a repeat C section. I felt it was my decision, and my body and my baby, I got it all MY WAY. Thank you so much to my midwife and Doctor!! I was a beautiful experience.

  2. I am so very happy for you…the only Absolute..is Love and Trust (in yourself) and YOu did it…so very beautiful

  3. I had a similar story of motherly intuition. It was my second pregnancy, and we were planning an HBAC, laboring at home, then after a while, I decided we needed to go to the hospital. I had some bleeding happening and I had a soft, gentle, non-fearful thought that said, “My placentas abrupting…” We transfer, no one picks up on it, but have a cesarean (at 43 weeks) and during the birth the OB states, “partial abruption…” I was the most empowering thing to be so in tune with my body.

    Kuddos to you for listening to your intuition and going with what was right for you and birthing WITHOUT fear!

  4. It’s so great that you went with your gut! I too did the same. My first was born vaginally but I tore so badly both inside & outside my body & lost a lot of blood. It was a horrible experience & the recovery was long & painful! So when I got pregnant w/ my second I just knew that having her via c-section was the best thing for both me & the baby. People would always ask why I was having a c-section & honestly…I would sometimes feel like people were viewing me as weak or I was making the wrong decision not to have her naturally. But during my cs my uterus ruptured because it was so thin. I just know that if I had tried to have a vaginal birth & let my body go into labor my uterus would have more than likely ruptured & who knows what would have happened then. So I’m very happy that I followed my instincts & had a cs. I must admit that I always see these wonderful pictures of these mothers having their babies at home or birth center & I’m envious that I never got to experience that.
