I do not believe elective c-sections are a good idea at all. I believe they are wonderful and lifesaving for emergency scenarios and I am very thankful for their existence. However, we still need to remember that this is major abdominal surgery with potential complications for both mom and baby. Appletree, the scenarios you listed sound like they fall into the medically justified category, so I really am just referring to people who choose c sections for fully superficial reasons. Honestly, it just makes me really sad that a woman would rather risk the health of herself and her baby just to potentially look better after birth. I think c sections have become so common that many people (especially here in socal) seem to forget or minimize the risks.
