Is Natural Labor Possible with Partial Placenta Previa?

I've been googleing the heck out of this and it's all pointing to a C-Section. I've talked to my OB and she says that if it migrates it may be possible, but we've already begun to talk about the date for the surgery (in 2 - 3 weeks!). I really do not want to have any surgery, esp. when it will involve my baby. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and maybe delivered natural.

What can I do next?

I understand what you are going through. I am VBACing in a couple of weeks and I will do anything to avoid another c-section, which for me has meant transferring care a couple of times and now I'm having the baby at home (with arrangements for hospital transport, if necessary). I would talk to the Lone Star OBGYN midwives. They deliver at St. Lukes and work and are supervised by OB/GYNs, so you get Dr. opinions, too. When I was thinking about birthing in a hospital, they were the best bet for a natural birth. I wouldn't try to do your birth at home, it might be risky. If you have good ultrasound images maybe this is something you can discuss with the midwives at Lone Star b/c San Antonio is a difficult place to avoid c-sections. My first practitioner was very candid with me about his fears of malpractice dominating his and many other local doc's care of women giving birth -- to the point where it matters much more to them to care for their lawsuit worries than it does for them to provide the best possible care for you.

Good luck.

There's hope for haveing a natural birth after a C-section. With my first I also had a C-section, and a month later i got pregnant with my second child and had her completely natural. It all depends. The doc will know what to do when the time comes. Just gotta have a little faith. It's different for everyone. They thought I would have to have my second child by C-section too.

I had this with my second pregancy and delivered natural. The doctor was concerned about it about the middle of my pregancy then he said that the problem had corrected itself. Don't know how or why. But I too didn't what a C-section and my doctor and I bump heads at almost every visit. Hang in there and hope and pray for the best.
Good luck,
