Elective C Section Toronto

Sori - January 26

Hello ladies, Can anyone recommend an open-minded OB/GYN in Toronto, who would agree to an elective C-section? Since I was 18 (I am now 25), I have been getting retinal migraines (temporary blindness episodes ranging from 10 to 30 minutes due to exertion; they are like mini-strokes inside the eye). I have seen many specialists throughout the years and I am otherwise healthy. My condition is very rare, poorly researched and my last neurologist told me I knew more about the topic than he did; on the other hand, another doctor agreed that I should always make only moderate effort. Anyway, do you think I have enough grounds to request a cesarean, and could you recommend an obstetrician in TOronto, who would agree to perform an elective C-section? I strongly believe I should make this decision because I really do not wish to know how my eye would react to all the pushing during labour... I get a great deal of pressure in the eye during these semi-monthly episodes, followed by complete visual loss. My husband and I are not pregnant yet, but we're trying... Feel free to e-mail me at sorina_b@yahoo.com, if you want to keep the doctor's name private. Thanks, Sori

Hi Sori, Im from hamilton and im seeing my obgyn tomorrow again. Shes really good and is open to csection but researches like mad and refers to many docs. If you think its in your best interest many doctors that i've heard of in my area are open to discussion. Hope all goes well.

I think you have medical grounds for a c-section. Vaginal birth is a healthy method for most women, but pushing could affect your eyesight and that is a very good reason to avoid it. Best wishes.

Ladies, thank you for your encouraging answers. I hope I can find nice OB/GYN in Toronto. I have access to Sunnybrook, Mount Sinai, North York hospitals.
