Have an induction or c-section if your baby didn't come naturally? My gyno is letting my choose by tues if my baby girl doesn't come by then. Either way im scared. I really want a natural birth, but nothing is working. Any opinions please?

Between the two, induction.



I will never choose to have a voluntary csection after my emergency one. Now if myself or baby were in danger, yes cut me open. Otherwise let my body do what it is meant to.

I would absolutely avoid major surgery if at all possible. Induction.

Induction.



A c section is a major surgery and shouldn't even be an option just because you're overdue.

I have had both and I would choose the induction any day. My first was an emergency csection and my other two were induced with pit with me starting at 0cm. Stay away from the knife if you can.

I would choose induction, purely because i wouldn't want the recovery of major abdominal surgery and it would.be as natural as you could get it. however its entirely up to you and what you feel comfortable with :)

if you can have a vaginal birth..i dont see why someone would choose a c-section. i'm gonna say induction. And i have been induced.

induction! My c-section was a way longer healing process, i woke up everyday for 2 weeks straight crying from the pain.. and then my incision got infected. The whole process just sucked..

I was induced with my last daughter, it was a breeze.




But there is a higher chance of cesarean whenever you are induced from what I have heard.

Thanks ladies!! Wish me luck, I'm still hoping this baby comes on her own!

Induction by far. I can't have a epi or spinal and I'd rather pit pain over gen anaesthesia and surgery... hope your LO decides to come soon and on their own so you don't have to have either :)
