I am so distressed I am digging and digging for promising news somewhere! Two months ago I had a classical c-section with my 27 week old son. The placenta was bad and he was dying and everyone insisted that it had to be a classical. I fought them as much as I could but they said labor would kill him because of the pressure on the placenta and that because he was premi, it had to be a classical. My son passed away after he was born and I've spent months recovering from this miserable surgery. I've had three prior vaginal deliveries that were about an hour or so long and required no pushing. We wanted a large family and now every doctor in the area is insisting that whatever we do, we would DEFINITELY have to schedule another c-section because I would most likely rupture and our next baby would die. I don't want to lose anymore children but everything people are telling me just doesn't feel right. I don't think I could ever voluntarily go through that again when my body does labor so well! I am devastated at losing my son but I also feel lied to about having a classical. I am sure it didn't HAVE to be that way, but what are you supposed to do when your son's life is on the line? I've read so much research on VBACS but I never know if it pertains to a classical since I think almost no one has a classical anymore. I would appreciate any research, advice, support, or stories that are out there to help me out. What are the chances of my scar REALLY rupturing and the baby dying? Why can't I find anyone who will do a vaginal birth for me? Do I really have to wait a year and a half for everything to truly be healed? What is the REAL information on classical scars? I'm fairly desperate to hear anything that I can. Thanks!
