    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I have noticed many of you have C-Sections planned and thought you may be interested in this new study -

    C-Sections Not Always Best for Small Babies

    This study discusses babies born by C-Section prior to 34 weeks had a higher chance of respiratory distress than babies born vaginally.

    Has your doctor recommended a C-Section? Is it because your baby is considered small?

    I had two c-sections both at 38 weeks. I had an abdominal myomectomy in 2006 and my doctor didn't think my uterus would be able to withstand the stress of labor.
