Question for Jessica1974

I read one of the older posts below that you assist in C-Sections. I was wondering, can you specifically request NOT to have a vacuum delivery? I've seen this several times on shows like Baby Story, etc., but I would prefer they not do it. One dr. explained that he didn't want a bigger incision. I'd rather have a bigger incision than a vacuum attached to my new born's head? Please advise whether this is my option or not. I mean, I know that they have to have informed consent, etc. for all procedures, but what would the dr. say if I brought this up?
