I have had ten babies. Out of those ten I had two csections. One was completely unnecessary, with my 4th, but they threw the "dead baby" card at me and I caved.
Later, with #7, I woke up at 38w 5d bleeding heavily. He was a planned homebirth, but I knew what was happening (placental abruption). I was calm, called the mw, and we went to the hospital.
I have some real issues with hospitals and with my first section I was sick, vomiting for 24 hours afterwards, so I begged the mw to let me just have him in the car in the er parking lot. Of course that wasn't a real option and we ended up with an emergency csection.
Afterwards the OB laughed at me and said "well you'll never have another vaginal birth, let alone a HOME birth!!" because it was a second section. I wanted to choke her. She was so nasty!!!!
Well, I did go on to have more vaginal births, and gasp, HOME births!!! My #8 was 11lbs 8 oz born at HOME!!! I had 2 more vaginal, natural hospital births after that too!!
It just goes to show there are a lot of people, doctors included, who are nasty about natural child birth.
