Quoting waiting on little luna!:" i think most doctors just have a fetish for cutting women open or something. it's sad that most women ... [snip!] ... the ONLY option for any type of problem. the US needs more midwifes and less doctors overseeing pregnancies in my opinion. "


I have had both type of births. My first was a Dr and an induction at 42 weeks, I had a 2 inductions (70 hours in all) and DD's heart flatlined during labor because of the pitocin and I ended up with a section. It was all so horrible. And this time I had a VBAC, a natural labor 28 hours in all (though at 10cm I couldn't get rid of the lip and was in transition for HOURS so had to get an epi to relax my body so I could finish dilating) with a midwife. So I have experienced both extreme's and for sure preferred the vaginal. But I have come to the conclusion that birth is overrated :D through both experiences. C-sections are overrated, and natural births are overrated, giving birth is overrated lol

Quoting Gemmas mommy!:" im going to :roll::roll::roll: at your first statement because this post had nothing to with that... ... [snip!] ... then i would want a C section because theres way more risks if i give birth to her breech vaginal then if i got a C section. "


Women can still deliver breech babies.. just sayin.



Anyways, babies don't turn til around 35-36 weeks. You're not far along enough to even worry about baby being breech right now. Theres lots of exercises you can do to encourage baby to turn. Don't even worry about it now.

Its very possible. But it depends what position baby is in, and there ARE more risks, like broken bones and stuff.

i've read about a doctor decapitating a baby from pulling it out too hard during a c-section.



NO option is necessarily safe.

No, they aren't. But some have elevated risks, like breech delivery.
