Classic C Section

Allie - September 18

I went into early labour with my daughter at 26 weeks. Baby was coming breech so they had to do a c section, it turned into a classic c section inverted t incision. We ended up losing the baby and were advised not to have any more children. I was wondering if anyone has gone through a pregnancy after having this done.

why were you advised not to have anymore children? due to it being a cla__sical incision? cause thats nust especially is it was your first child...i would seek another opinion.....

I am so sorry for what you went through Allie... I cannot imagine how it must hurt to loose a baby. You need to find out why they are advising you not to have any more children... what is the reason and I would definately get a second opinion. Many women who have had similar situations have gone on to have healthy children... is there a medical reason why you wouldn't be able to carry another child?

I went throught something similar. I had placenta previa and my daughter was delivered emergency c-section at 28 weeks and died at 10 days old. I am trying to decide the same thing, whether it is safe to try again. My doctor told me to wait 1 - 1/2 year between births and that it would have to be a c-section. But the risks are higher for people like us. I think I have to trust God and pray that this can't happen to us twice.

Hey guys thank you for your replies. I sure do appreciate it.I have found a Docotor that will walk me through another pregnancy. I now have to get up the nerve to try again. I am told that my cervix thins the further I get in pregnancy and therefore going into preterm labour. I certainly hope that she can do something for me to prevent this from happening again.

I know my cervix had thinned and I was dialated to 6 cm. I was diagnosed with incompetent cervix. I also had the vertical section but mine wasn't the cla__sic T. My regular OB told me to wait at least a year. But the high risk doctor who delivered my baby has a different opion. We lost my son in August (Birth Date: 07/19) the high risk doctor told me to come in to see him in January and if all looks okay then he sees no reason why we can't try again. I wouldn't try until after I have seen a high risk doctor and developed a pregnancy plan. I will be having a preventive cerclage placed at 14 weeks to help reinforce my cervix. Possible bedrest after that-good luck to you.

Hi Allie, I am so sorry for your loss. I just wanted to let you know that I had an inverted T with my 3rd baby and had a VBAC with my 4th. I plan on having one more baby sometime in the future. Feel free to PM me for my story or if you have any questions. Many *hugs* to you!

Hi Jessica - I don't want to hijack this thread but would love to ask you some questions about your inverted T. I had my first c-section with my fourth last year and am getting negative advice about ttc #5. I also homeschool - btw

Feel free to PM me with specific questions. I know a lot of women who have VBAC'd after 1, 2, 3, and even 4 c-sections!! :-)

hello, i am a 21 year old female and i had my first baby when i was 18, the birthing of my daughter is still very unclear to me due to all the drugs in my body at the time. I had a cla__sical cesarean section done and was wondering if any one knew a specific reason as to why this would be done on a first time mother...

jessicaanne010 can you tell me more about your c-section? My situation is similar and would like to have one more child.
