    C-section question

    Im not even pregnant yet but thinking about bb#2.
    I had an elective c-section with my first at a private hospital and paid a fortune for it. Likely the second time round I'll have to have another c-section - as the first one was. Could I get an elective one done easily in a local hospital since i have had one done already? Im thinking of $$$$$ here. Then again i do feel more comfortable with my private doctor who did an excellent job on my op. and left me with no scar. Ideas????

    shaz,

    Just a questions as I am looking to have an elective C-section - who was your doctor and do you recommend it? How was the healing afterwards and do you really have no scar left??

    hi muriel, it was a long time ago and will need to check out my doc's info. and get it to you later if that's ok. his office was in Shatin and TST, i had the c/s at Union Hospital in Shatin. the healing was not too bad as i was walking the next day, you do feel pain and pulling on the area but its really not that bad. my scar recovered fine with no infection or anything, my scar is very small and you can hardly see it and he did it very low and it has now been covered by my pubic hair (sorry to be gross!) he was a very nice man too and professional in his attitude, care and skills.

    I have had all my children at a local hospital and they do not do elective sections. A section is done only if the situation requires it. My third child was breech and even then a c-section was not the first option until the very last minute and the baby had not turned.

    Having had a section before doesn't qualify as a reason to have another one unless it was complicated in some way.

    Hope taht helps.

    in uk a second c/s (following a 1st) is call for a medical reason and the typical approach. i don't know hk but if that is the case id' go private again.

    I spent quite alot of time in the hospital and there were quite a few women who were having a natural birth after having had a section as well as myself.
