C Section at Stoke Mandeville

Hiya! Im meant to be having an elective c section at stoke Mandeville when I turn 39 weeks (currently 37) but apparently they’re fully booked at the moment so I’m on a waiting list. Has anyone had this situation where you were called in and everything ran smoothly? Or did you have to wait past the 39 week mark?

They have cancellations all the time. I found out I needed one at 38 weeks as she had gone footling. Got a call within 24hrs booking me in within 39 weeks

All calm and organised, I freaked out when they said about the waiting list at first

Hey! I had my LB 4 months ago yesterday. I was told I'd get a call any time from "now" with my date but it could be as late as the day before I go in so be ready. In the end I got my call within 48 hours of my consultation and was booked in. It was such a great experience, I hope yours is too :)

Thanks for confirming guys, it’s always so scary when it’s the unknown and im definitely a planner! I had my consultation on Tuesday but haven’t heard back yet, fingers crossed I hear back soon xx

Hello! This happened to me. I was on the waitlist and was called on the Monday (I was 39+1) to say they had a space for me on the Thursday (and I had been fourth on the waitlist). I was told if you’ve asked for an elective they have to give you one before your 40th week or they can be liable if anything happened. Good luck! x

No experience with being on the waiting list but had both my c sections (one emergency, one elective) at Stoke and they were brilliant! X
