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.
