Question: My doc told me I might have to have a c section due to a cyst I had on my tail bone a couple years ago.. It does bother me some days from the scar tissue. I would rather not have a c section. I'm currently 17 weeks and he said we will see when we get closer to my due date because of the risks having her vaginally. Is there anyone else out there that had this situation?

Have the doctor explain exactly why this cyst is dangerous to either you or the baby. Is it because he only delivers with the mother on her back? In that case, you need a different caregiver who can accommodate your health issue. Don't let him patronize and put it off until you have no options to switch to another provider. Get him to talk to you now why it is even a consideration. I wasn't even PREGNANT yet and my now-retired doctor covered the issues why I should have a repeat section instead of a VBAC, but his explanation was reasonable (at the time, there was virtually no published information about my medical issue and now a lot more study has been made). Doesn't mean that I have to do it though. BTW, there was an interesting article in my paper recently that found that the rate of c-section for women WITH insurance is more than twice that of women without insurance. Does this mean that women without insurance are better able to push their babies out? In addition, I know 2 women who were laid off from their jobs and were unable to get individual policies because they had previously had a c-section. NO OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS, perfect weight, family lives to eternity.

You do not have to agree to a c-section regardless of what your doctor is recommending. I would definitely get a second opinion and change doctors if you need to. Scar tissue on your coccyx should not prevent you from delivering vaginally. Please remember that your doctor works for you, not the other way around.

My question to you is if he is a private practice doctor. read my blog on myspace it should explain a little more. I too have had a cyst on my coccyx but that was not my dr's reason. please read. My current doctor is great and sees no reason I can't give birth vaginally.

It depends on what form of incision you had when you had your first c-section. If it was a standard one then a VBAC is generally considered safe on subsequent pregnancies. Mind you the doctor will of course prefer to schedule you for a c-section over letting you go naturally since this means he won't get woke up at 2 am to deliver your baby and still have to be at the clinic by 8 in the morning! Many many women each year have VBAC's, they and their babies come through just fine. My best friend had a VBAC after having a c-section for twins! There is always a risk but there is a risk with just being pregnant and also risks with c-section. Personally I would ask him his personal opinion on VBAC and possibly call your hospital to see if they have any OB's that support VBAC over repeat c-sections.
