I'm so sorry for your loss! I cant imagine that, I had 2 miscarriages before my youngest son was born and its hard to deal with. But I would definitely get together with your doctors and do what you think is best so you can avoid anything bad happening this time around. Best of luck to you!

I really feel for you and my thoughts go out to you. My husband and I lost our daughter at 26 weeks into the pregnancy resulting in her being still born by natural birth. My son was born however via emergency C section as his heart rate kept dipping during my contractions. However nerve wracking a C section sounds it honestly isn't as bad as you think. If you think it would be safer for your son to be delivered by C section then tell your Midwife that you really would like this method rather than have a natural birth and risk losing another child. All the doctors and midwives involved in my pregnancy and the birth of my son were fantastic and seamed to understand my concerns and talked me through every available and safe option. Good luck I hope all goes well.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I can't imagine going through that. I don't have any advice. All I can suggest is do what the Dr. thinks is the safest and pray for the best. I hope everything goes good and you and your son are ok. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
