I don't even know where to start because I'm pretty speechless but here goes...

One of my very good friends is pregnant and due in July. She revealed to our whole group of friends this weekend that she is has decided to have an elective csection so that the baby "doesn't mess up her vagina". WHAT?!?!? What is scary is she is a nurse so she knows very well what all is involved in recovery from a c-section.

She is a first time mom so I tried not to freak out on her and told her how much easier a vaginal delivery is and how the vagina actually heals fairly quickly and things don't stay stretched out forever like you would think. DF even told her that having sex with me after two kids feels no different than before we had kids She is still not convinced...I'm just speechless that anyone would opt for that without it being medically necessary for mom or baby and I'm even more appalled that any doctor would be ok with that.
