    I’ve just had an elective section after a forceps / episiotomy/ failed ventouse previous delivery. Baby was 9lb 4oz and also a shoulder dystocia.

    I had to make a decision on c sec or natural. Chose c sec was so relaxed and complete opposite to the trauma of the first birth. Recovery however was painful but I did have to have a ovarian cyst removed at the same time so possibly more painful for recovery due to that aswell.

    i had a birth debrief with a specialised midwife which helped me make my decision on delivery. Maybe see if you could have that too?

    I had a severe tear with my first, tore from next to my bladder all the way down, I had a haemorrhage and passed out needed blood transfusions. I can't remember anything what they said happened or degree etc. But i got pregnant with my son ans he decided he wanted to come 5 weeks early was rushed in but already 10cm and my waters burst and I had to push.. Didn't even get a tear he was 6lbs 8oz.
    Do what's best for you.

    Why are you not keen on a section? If I'm offered one next time I'll be all over it. My stupid episiotomy scar still hurts and my bub will be 1 next month. The exhaustion of labour made it sooo much harder to heal and care for a baby than it needed to be.
