I am not pregnant we are TTC our third from [name_f]May[/name_f].
I was thinking a lot about c sections and that I would probably ask for one this time round due to the following reasons.
-I have higher end of normal Blood pressure, which is likely to be elevated more from the 2nd trimester onwards, which of course puts me at risk for pre-eclampsia.
I had post partum hemorrhages with my previous boys. One resulting in two blood transfusions.
I have sinus tachycardia in my pregnancies ( high resting pulse) which is a lot on my heart as my resting pulse is equivalent to running a marathon.
Do you think it’s reasonable for me to ask for a c section given the above?
I am in the UK so I’d be interesting in hearing experiences with asking for an elective C section? And would this be classed as an elective C section or does it just get classed as scheduled/warranted one lol due to my health??
What happens exactly, do they call and schedule and let you chose from some dates?
Was the recovery ok?
Would you recommend it?
