Hello. This will be my third c/s but my first planned c/s. Last time was a home VBAC transfer because I pushed for an extremely long time. My decision not to go for the VBA2C is coming as a huge shock to anyone that knows me.
I'm using the same dr and hospital I had last time so at least I will know their procedure. I am starting to work on my birth plan. Does anyone have birth plans to share?
I'll be trying to arrange a way to hold the baby sooner. How soon were you able to hold your baby? I've always had to wait over an hour. I'd like to keep the baby with me the whole time and have the newborn exam done in the room.
Also, I had gathered that they often schedule an ERC at 38 weeks. Was this true for you? Did the baby need special help after birth?
Is there anything else different with a ERC vs a C/S after a long labor?
