thats really sad, that someone would deprive themselves of the joy of childbirth vaginally. I understand some need c-sections, but to purposely do that to your body....
~Beth~ Wife to my Airman Chris, and mommy to: Anthony Nathaniel (8/31/04), Anastasia Fae (8/01/06), Baby C (lost on 10/12/07), David Cillian (7/31/08), Charles George (4/29/10), and Alan Christopher (2/22/12)
thats really dumb why are you going to put your child at risk? the only reason you should have a c section is for medical reasons i wouldnt want one unless i needed one it takes more time to recover from c sections than having it natural
I find it more sad/selfish that she had it done at 37 weeks. My first son was born (naturally) at 37 weeks and although he came on his own he wasn't quite ready for the outside world. He had an underdeveloped nervous system and digestive system and it was a good couple months before he was on track. I can't tell you how happy I was when our second went the full 40 weeks and didn't have those issues. Well worth the couple extra stretch marks and discomfort. I don't understand choosing a section if there is no medical reason to do so, and I don't get these doctors can get away with doing them without a valid reason and doing it so early. It just makes me sad.
That is freaking ridiculous. One of my coworkers had her child by a scheduled cesarean because she was afraid that childbirth would "hurt" and she "can't take pain." When she told me what she was planning to do I was just like "and recovering from a c-section is going to be painless??!!"
She wasn't even willing to go into labor on her on and get an epidural because she didn't want to have to wait until she was 3-4 centimeters dilated before getting it. And as a disclaimer, I'm a doctor and she is a nurse so we were having this conversation with us both understanding the risks of a non-emergent c-section.
That being said, everyone at work thought that I was nuts for having my baby naturally, let alone with midwives at a birthing center.
