Message length 300 characters recommended

For my stillborn daughter Leilani I had a vaginal delivery. I did need pitocin to help start labor but eventually vaginally delivered a silent angel. I didn't want a c-section and was ¨healthy" enough to not need one. It was horrible knowing after all of it I wouldn't have a sweet angel.


The size and position of the baby may play a role of what kind of delivery you can have. Some medical conditions might play a role as well. If medical conditions and positions were not a factor it is usually recommended to have a vaginal delivery. Generally vaginal deliveries have less complications, a quicker recovery time, and don't cause damage that may effect your ability to have more children. Some women may opt for a c-section for personal reasons as well.
