Since I've spent half my pregnancy so far watching my hopes of a vaginal, let alone natural, delivery disappear, I've been trying to find some good options which might still be open to me. There's still a slight chance I'll get the birth I'd like, but since a c/s is looking more and more likely, my MW and I have been discussing this article The natural caesarean: a woman-centred technique - Smith - 2008 - BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology - Wiley Online Library and I'll be talking it over with an OB at my next appointment. I'm hoping he'll agree to try for most of the things it suggests, if he won't agree to an attempt at a vaginal delivery.
I do realize this is kind of off topic from natural birth. I'm still trying to reconcile myself to my placenta previa and still holding out a shred of hope that it'll move in time. Is it okay if I keep posting here (and maybe even get a lodge, just in case)?
