My friend actually wrote this post about me...because of some of the grief I have experienced from others about my decision to do a repeat c-section. This post actually has the best points, and then some of the responses actually SHOW THE REASON FOR THE POST!!! I couldn't believe it. I mean here is this post upset about the way C-Section women are treated with judgement and yet some women are still judging...

I guess they think they are better than other women because they went all natural.

That was a great post!

It has always boggled my mind as to WHY some women stress so much and get so nasty and opinionated over how OTHER women deliver their babies and the reasons behind it. It is no one else's business anyhow.

That was a great post! It makes me feel better about having another c-section. Oh yes I was afraid people would say something because I am not having a VBAC

I feel the same way, why would someone care how i chose to deliver my baby. My daughter is here heathy and doing wonderfully, and to me, i would never put either of us at risk. I had the chance to try and do a version to flip Mackenzie since she was breech, and i declined. to me it seemed risky for her, the cord could get wrapped around her neck or go in a knot. That just wasnt worth it to me, so i said if she turns great, if not, csection it is. i never once questioned my decision. How i gave birth never mattered to me, especially at that point in my pregnancy (38 weeks is when she turned breech) 2 women in my DDC lost their babies, one at 36 weeks and one gave birth at 34 weeks, and the baby didnt make it. So how i gave birth wasnt important to me, holding my baby girl was.

What i decide to do with my next birth, will decide on my situation when the time comes. Whatever me and my doctor decide is best for me and my baby, is what i will do. I am not going into it with any set plans, since we all know that plans can change.

These boards are great for the imformation we get, but at the same time can be very judgemental. Good for your friend for posting that.

I agree...I don't get it why some people spend their time and energy worrying about the choices that others make in regards to a c-section. What difference does it make to them? I used to frequent the c-section board on another website, and there were a few people that took it upon themselves to "educate" all of the c-section mamas. When that didn't work, they went elsewhere on the board to talk about it and the c-section mamas were refered to as "knife weilding wackjobs". Um, ok. Take that passion and put it towards something worthwhile!

Thank you for sharing that! We had lots of complications with Isaac, and I had to have an emergency c-section. We almost lost him right then, and we would've if they had waited any longer. It's so sad to me how some people think and "look down" on others. Isaac's life was saved that day b/c of the c-section. Noah was a repeat c-section, b/c the two c-sections were close together, the first had been an emergency, and my pelvic structure won't allow for me to have a vaginal birth. That last point is something no one can argue with! Through all the comments I've heard and everything I've experienced, the most important thing during the L&D is that mom and baby are both healthy and fine!!!!!!
