I have noticed....

A lot of the women on here are either doing a c section or being induced. Not saying that there is anything wrong with either just curious why? If anyone would like to share their reasoning of why I would love to hear it.

I have to get a medically necessary induction. My physician is required to monitor me every step of labor because of a congenital heart condition.

I had to be induced after my water broke and labor still didn't start. It wasn't what I wanted but I accepted the circumstances. This time I'm hoping to go into labor myself and avoid unnecessary interventions. I've seen a lot of induction/c section birth stories too. About a month ago I swear all I saw were c section stories. Crazy. Since this is a slightly older group of women than in my usual forum, I bet a ton of c sections are repeats.

My Dr is concerned with baby's blood sugar from my gestational diabetes and will only let me go a couple days after my due date.

I had a csection at 35wks due to severe preeclamplsia. I wasn't healthy enough for labour and my baby wasn't ready. This time I'll be having another csection because we're aiming for 36wks but expecting my health to deteriorate after 24wks considering preeclamplsia started at 15wks this time.

my baby is breeched and my doctor won't be able to turn him bc there isn't enough amniotic fluid therefore it will be difficult . So I'm doing a c section when I turn 39 weeks.. I'm 37+4 right now. I'm ready tho :)

I'm pregnant with my 3rd child and will be having a repeat c section. With my first daughter i wouldn't dilate after 4cm so they induced me but after 12 hours of not dilating and my daughters heart rate was in distress they did and emergency c section

My little one has been breech the last 3 growth scans. I am 38+4 today and I have a c-section scheduled at 39 weeks. I am also chronic hypertensive. We elected to not do an ECV because of the risks and the low chance of it working. This is my first and I don't want a c-section,  but its what is best for me and baby.

I am scheduled for a C-Section on the 27 because of our son being in transverse position (side to side, not up and down). He has been that way since 25 weeks.  We are also having mo/di twins so we are just hoping to make it to the 27th because we will be 37 weeks at that time.

I have to have a c section due to me having one kidney & that kidney being in my pelvis. If I was to have a vaginal birth it would kill me.

Im having a scheduled c section because my baby is measuring a little over 2 weeks bigger than he is supposed to be.  My last son was also big and he broke his collar bone during a vaginal delivery. Because of this my dr recommend a c section and I also feel it is the safest.

I am being induced because I am just  2 days shy of 42 weeks and running low on fluid for baby.

Might be having a c section due to me havinghaving a low lying placenta. If it has not moved by 36 weeks that is. This is because if i go into labour they are worried imy placenta may come first and be dangrous for me and baby

Think about it, 70 years ago many women died during birth as c sections and inductions were just not done as most births were at home. So survival of the fittest!

I have to have a c section because my pelvis is simply to small to fit a baby bigger than 35 weeks gestation through, if I tried naturally I would end up with an emergency c section and if I refused by baby and I would most probably not survive birth.
