Quoting gigiwesson:" Sounds like it. You see it more with private practices rather than doctors in a hospital or HMO. My ... [snip!] ... presenting transverse or frank breech. I will if I have to but only because it would be an EMERGENCY. Okay, rant over, LOL."
I actuly wanted a c section because of other health problems I have but they did not want me too. So I was induced (with no pain meds or epidural) for 24 hours. The whole time the baby's heat rate was dropping. I was pushing for 4 hours and the baby could not handle it. I could not handle it. This was the worst experience of my life. I was standing on the bed trying to push this kid out who was stuck. I felt NO urge to push at all. I was yelling at them to kill me. Then eventually they put me under for a csection. I woke up a long time later and a lot of people had already seen my baby
My dream of letting my baby go right to my breast was ruined. I am seriously crushed by this. And horrified that if I have another baby I will have to be put to sleep again.
I knew my body could not do it naturally with all my other health issues. But they wanted me to "try"
So some people do need c sections.... but if I had not been induced I think I could have done it.
Sorry that was my rant LOL
