Hi Michelle thank you for these great questions!
About your own labor, that must have been so frustrating! If the cervix was soft and dilatation was fast at first then more likely there was some kind of bony obstruction — either the baby absolutely bigger than the pelvis, or else a relative disproportion in the way Baby was angled or faced or holding their head, or even a hand in front of the face can obstruct progress.
Great question about ‘success’ — we’ll definitely talk about that too, and when to start (usually 36 weeks).
Warmest wishes and thank you so much for being brave and starting a topic! I’d love to hear what others think on this.
