Just wondering about the percentage of women who have cesareans because their pelvic bones aren't open enough...? Does anyone know?
I just had a cesarean on Dec 12 because of this reason, I was told that my pelvic bones are heart shaped and are very small. So i can never have babies naturally unless they're very small. (3 pounds or so) I tried to have a natural waterbirth, without any medications but the doctor actually had me push at 9cm and not fully effaced which caused really bad pain... So that ended the no pain medications. And i kept trying but got nowhere and i had to have a c-section, which still bothers me greatly... I wanted a natural waterbirth so bad. When i first found out i was pregnant i thought i would have to have a cesarean but the doctors said it was rare that my bones would be too small and i'd be surprised. I looked it up and read that it was rare (not how rare it is, which i really want to know!) So i thought i could do it... So now that i had to have the oporation, it's been bothering me so so much.....
