I am after a bit of advice/guidance from anyone who's recently or currently been in this position.
I had my first child two years ago by planned c-section (due to placenta previa) and I have just found out I am expecting my second! Very early days and I've not had booking appt yet, but I have been am doing some research on delivery options and the current NICE guidelines and I am really keen to have another c-section, in part due to the risks I know about vbac and also the fact that these are increased due to my age (37 when bump is due) as is the apparent need for an emergency section......
But that said EVERYTHING I read seems to be saying that the preferred advice from the nhs is to go for a vbac unless there is a physiological reason why the mother can't deliver naturally. I am wondering if I am going to have a battle on my hands or if it is still ultimately my choice?
What are others experiences?
Thanks in advance!
