I've never had an OB who would have agreed to it unless the mom had some pretty substantial reasoning that wasn't a medical issue (maybe a severe anxiety disorder or something of the like). Having said that I think it's kind of strange but I could see why it would be appealing, especially if you've never had a previous birth experience. it probably seems much simpler, less complicated and easily planned. Only afterward can she decide whether it was all of those things (although I seriously doubt recovery from major surgery will be a pleasant experience). I would never consider it, and c-sections absolutely TERRIFY me but who am I to judge someone for wanting one, regardless of their reasoning. It might be somewhat shallow but if someone offered me a tummy tuck and breast augment after this baby i'd jump at the opportunity so I really can't say there isn't a part of me that IS somewhat shallow.
