my water broke but was in labour for abt vaginal delivery was happening and when they monitored my baby's heart beat they said it was getting slower coz of the u cord round his neck.Immediately i was wheeled in for a C section.The U cord din do well on him so he was in the incubator for abt a day.But by Gods grace we got him in hands fine and healthy.
In my opinion when the child's safety is the question mother going thru C section is no big deal.
Do let us know how things are going with u mmec.
Take care.
