So that’s a big concern and just overall care. I have a C section, I have an emergency C section, because of this heart rate. And the doctor said I have the option of having another C section. And honestly, part of it was because the baby December 21st, and I knew that I'm on the risk of being in the hospital during Christmas and it just seemed easier to be able to plan on it and tell everybody when it was going to be and obviously, can still be earlier.

And my doctor explained the risks of having a vaginal birth after caesarian and having another caesarian section were pretty much the same and so it just seemed easier.
