I wanted to piggy back Stella’s Birthing and Traffic analogy post. All I can say is Amen. Timing is everything. I’m a HypnoBirthing mom and student of Stella. I’m around 35 or so weeks along. My child is still moving around some, but I think she has moved into optimal birthing position after she and I had a little HypnoBirthing inspired talk. :) My doctor was talking C-section when she discovered my baby was transverse at my Friday doctor’s appointment last week. I don’t believe she is transverse now and I think I feel her little bottom at the top of my abdomen.
My doctor was more than eager to do a C-Section due to my prior C-section with my son and I’m sure her scheduling issues and convenience factors. She has a very indifferent attitude when it comes to this. I discovered my doctor is severely absentminded and very forgetful due to a recent experience in which she performed a total hysterectomy, some other repairs and a bladder lift for my mother two weeks ago. She is the complete opposite of “mindful” which is the descriptive that I require for anybody who deals with me or my baby. I do have plans to stay at home until the very last minute or crowning occurs (grin, I may go to the hospital just short of crowning), due to this fact.
My child will be born when she is ready. She will not be cut out, induced out or pushed out.
