Does anybody know of a doctor in the Tri-Cities that will allow patients to choose c-section instead of vaginal delivery? I would rather have a c-section. Thanks.

Yes. I am actually a medical professional myself, familiar with the risks and benefits of both types of delivery. Not looking for a debate, just information about local physicians. Thanks.

I've known of patients having planned C-sections at Sycamore Shoals. Most if not all had previous bad encounters with natural child birth first tho.

Thanks. That's really helpful. Sycamore Shoals does not deliver anymore, though. I think those doctors go to Franklin Woods now.

It was about 12 years ago that my ex scheduled one there so I'd say you're right and times have changed

Any of the doctors at Franklin Woods will, even if it's a first birth? That is great news for me, if true. Thank you.

I had to have an emergency c-section back in '93, and believe me I hated it! Would have loved to have been able to hold my child right after delivery...but I didn't get to see him until the next day!

Planned c-sections are much different from emergency c-sections. And these days, doctors and hospital staff are usually very good about allowing contact between mother and infant right after birth even in cases of c-section.

I would not want an emergency c-section either! In fact, that's one of the reasons I would like to plan a scheduled c-section. So many people go through a trial of labor and just end up with a c-section anyway. I would rather just schedule one so that it's not such a frightening and "out of control" experience with many unknowns.

Not trying to be rude but your sex life will be way better if you have a C-section. After my ex wife had our first kid it looked like a stick of dynamite was set off inside her..

If you're too scared to push a baby out your vag then maybe you're not ready to be a mom.

There's no reason other than being a baby that one would need to plan a c-section that isn't medically necessary.

Grow up before you breed. Thanks.

Why do you care how I choose to give birth? There is so much judgment surrounding pregnancy, birth, and parenting. I think people need to worry about themselves and their own families, and stop trying to make each other feel inadequate.

Planned c-sections carry no more risk for the baby than vaginal delivery (in fact, they may carry less risk, depending on which study you read). There is more risk for the mother, though it is still a very safe procedure. But if I want to accept more risk for myself and my body, why should someone tell me I can't? People have elective surgeries every day in this country.

There are reasons why c-section is preferable to me, and I'm an educated adult who can make up my own mind. As for the idea that I'm not ready to be a mom if I don't want to birth vaginally, that's just more shaming and judgment, and I'll thank you to keep it to yourself. I have a great marriage, a great job, a huge family support system, a nice home environment, and a good education. I will be an excellent mom.

And you'll have a better post birth sex life if you have a C-section. If the others think its wrong of you they can give birth however they see fit, in a cow pasture for all we care.

Instead of trying to justify why having a c-section that isn't necessary is okay...can you just admit that you're a grown woman who is afraid to give birth?

Yes. So? I'm not sure why that matters to anyone but my doctor, my husband, and me. I'm not wronging you or anybody else by making my own reproductive choices. The way I give birth shouldn't matter to someone who doesn't know me at all.

Vaginal birth has potential consequences that are scary to me. I work with a woman whose pelvic floor is so wrecked from vaginal birth that she has to wear a special undergarment to keep her bladder from literally falling out of her body.

If that doesn't scare you, awesome. You have my congratulations, and my permission to feel smug and superior. Is that what you need? I'm not sure what your stake is in continuing to post on this thread when it doesn't concern you, and you obviously have nothing to offer here except judgment.

As for me, I'm not ashamed to walk in to a doctor's office and ask for what I want. If they feel a request is inappropriate, they can always deny it. Let's leave that to them though, ok? If you're not an OB, you don't get to make that call.
