48 Hours of Labor for Home Birth, Ended in C-Section


Kaelan has arrived. He's a healthy boy, and big. 9lbs 7 ounces big :)

We prepared for a home birth, but in the end the cervix wasn't getting dilated enough progressing too slow. After 48 hours, it was only at 6-7 cm. The babies heart rate was dropping after the membrane was broken manually to try to force labor to progress.

So we ended up at the hospital this morning after my partner had an arduous 48 hours of labor. She couldn't take anymore. A c-section was required to get the baby out with lowering heartrate. He's healthy. All is good :D

Back to the hospital after coming home to get food and some other stuff. Take care. Peace!

Congrats! I was 3 ozs bigger, and had to be delivered via c-section as well. Glad everything worked out for you.

My sincere and happy congratulations to you all. I went through almost the identical situation with my firstborn. I am confident that you and yours are utterly drained and focused on more substantial matters than Steem, but I am grateful you have let us that care know of your blessed event.

Thanks! (get some rest!)

Suddenly your occupation with more pressing and important matters is affecting me, because you are my proxy for witnesses.

I very much want to have one of my witness votes go to @r0nd0n, but I doubt you are presently aware he has tossed his hat in the ring. As my proxy, I am fully supportive of your choices for witness, save that @r0nd0n has now entered the field.

I know this is a trivial matter compared to your present undertakings for you, but I hope you see this comment soon, and deign to address it so that I might know whether I need to proceed differently than to leave you my proxy. I'm sorry to interject this issue in your familial bliss, but it is important to me, so I do.

Thanks!

Congrats! I'm glad she and the baby are safe. This is how it goes sometimes and why the hospital is there with a maternity ward. Sometimes things don't go as planned. I'm sorry the home birthing didn't work out as that is always preferable.

Thanks! Yeah things could have been better, and worse too. Glad it all went well in the end. She just has to recuperate from the surgery now.

I imagine giving birth is difficult period regardless of how long it takes! I don't know what is typical, but, 48 hours sounds like it would be pretty intense? Glad to hear all is good though! Congratulations! That must be an incredible feeling and experience. :) I hope things continue to go as good as is possible for you and your family! <3

Yeah, 48 hours is long... some are lucky and it can take 3 hours, or 12, or even 24h, but 48 is yikes. Thanks :D

Hi @krnel

I just visited your profile to check out if you posted anything interesting lately, just to realize that you didn't publish anything in a long while.
Hope youa are well and didn't give up on steemit yet.

OMG. I missed this. I'm so happy for you. Surgery is not a joking matter at all. My wife also gave birth with surgery last year July 24
