Ivf prevnancy after 9 years ttc - vaginal or c section?

Postby tagra » Wed May 10, 2017 11:27 am

Hello Ladies,

After TTC for 9 years without any known issue I finally did vis our first IVF. Now i'm confused if we should ho for normal/ vaginal delivery or go for planned c section to abpid any risk. I feel normal would be fine for me as my mom had all 3 of us delivered normally and labor was quick ones. But age wise she was too young and I'm not, at 35 now. So far I have left it all on my doc as long as there is no harm to this precious baby i'm ready for either way. What do u think? It Would be great if I may use your experience here.
Cheers to life!

I don't see any reason to have CS unless you either have existing risks or it's deemed an emergency.

I will be 35 also at time of delivery and see no reason to have a c section based on my age. I know it's scarey. Towards the end of my last pregnancy I had some complications and lots of anxiety. I just wanted the baby out healthy! But I have to say that the dr did an excellent job monitoring the baby's heart rate during my labor and in the end I had a relatively easy vaginal childbirth. I think the best thing is that you are being open to either method of childbirth.
