when i was pregnant with my 1st child i asked for an epidural & c-section but midwife said no to c-section said i was gonna deliver baby myself but after being in labour for 12 hours i had to have an emergency c-section as my daughters skull had already fused together & she was stuck on the way down hope things have changed for the better that was 22 years back why do they not listen

They are supposed to encourage a natural birth over c section all the time. It wasn't that she didn't listen to you, she was doing her job. Just because you asked for a c section, doesn't mean would have been needed, plus the midwives don't do c sections. You should have arranged it with your doctor.
