You might want to avoid a section but it might be medically necessary if the little one struggles or if your labour doesn't progress.

    The key is to prepare yourself for any outcome so that you don't panic if you can't follow your preferred plan.
    Amen! Knowing what you want but knowing the many possible outcomes is the best birth plan you can have. You don't need us to know what you want, but you've been given lots of great information so far to help you decide.
