'In distress'?

Hey Ya Yummies!

I hear the term bouncing about 'if the baby is in distress' what does that actually mean.. sure in labour i'll be pretty 'distressed' myself?? lol I've put up another post about having a rather large baby - like as in coming out going to school lol... They have briefly spoke about a C -section & although i'd prefer a O~natrual birth (with millions of pain relief haha wipe that I am) of course i'll do what best for this baby ...

I just didn't want to be frighterened into it by a knife happy doctor by telling me the baby is in 'distress' without actually knowing what that means or what the implications are for me and my beautiful little baby waitting to come out!

Thanks... Mwah! x :lol:

  • They say that ur baby is in distress if its heart rate either starts going to fast or to slow. I ended up having an emergency section coz Rhys was in distress and his heart rate had slowed right down. Kerry xxx

  • Hi hun they are normally pretty certain when baby is distressed. Its normally when babies heartbeat dips too low with a contraction or goes down and stays down longer than it should. They do any things to get the right result. When I was in with my second they kept losing her hearbeat so I had to have an internal moniter clipped to her head, it was very uncomfortable for me when hey were doing it but was reassuring for them.

    They have seen hundreds of women and its not normally just one perosn that will make the decision of getting a baby out quickly normally its a decision from bothmidwive and consultant.

    Hope this helps and good luck for tomorrow xxxx
