When is a cesarean section an “emergency “

When I’ve mentioned that I had a csection I’ve gotten asked if it was an emergency situation. I was scheduled (more like went to my 38 week appointment and was asked “wanna have a baby today?”) for an induction due to a “wavering heart rate “ basically saying my son had no baseline heart rate. It went from ~105 to around ~175 with no consistency. The induction went on for a few hours (I can’t even remember how long tbh) But his heart rate stayed steady at ~180 and started to climb higher. My heart rate started to climb at that point and that’s when we went for the csection. So yes it was a point of risk to carry on vaginally but to me that’s not “emergency “ What do y’all think? When is a csection deemed “emergent” I wasn’t RUSHED into OR things were still pretty calm.

That is emergent. You or baby could have had a stroke.

It's nobody's business why you had a c-section. Even if you just had bad anxiety about labor and decided to schedule a cesarean for your own reasons, that's fine. You're not any less of a woman and you're not a bad mom because you made a choice to do what was best for your family. I hate it when people ask those kinds of questions so they can judge you if you answer that it wasn't an emergency. Sounds like it was pretty important to me! Glad you and baby are healthy now. 👍

Consultant told me at the hospital that any unplanned C section is classed at emergency due to being unplanned.
