KEEP ON TURNING!

Another 90 degree, please.

It is funny to be able to feel the round baby head at the side of my tummy. I hope he turns soon :)

Oh BTW, I have discussed ECV with my doctor and she didnt recommend me to go through the procedure. She is very positive the baby will turn.

My next ultrasound appointment will be in 2 weeks. Pray for me pls!

I know people come by to visit and read your blog, and so I thought it would be responsible to update here :) Theres actually new data about the safety index of repeat caesarean section vs vaginal birth after prev scar.

We had a recent discussion with our consultant during one of our usual ward round last weekend. What obstetrician generally practises before and how they thought about Vaginal delivery Vs Repeat caesarean section might just skewed with the emergence of this recent Australian study.

Please read this article first before moving to the journal:

"Is Elective Repeat Cesarean Surgery Truly Safer Than Planned VBAC?"


This is actually an open access paper. So I guess, they want us to read this! :)
