View Full Version : Do you regret it?
To all the women who chose for their own reasons (not medical) to have a c/s.
Do you regret choosing to have one?
Was it all you thought it would be , better or worse?
i chose mine for ds2 for medical reasons however it wasnt a do or die situation ie i could of attempted vb.
do i regret it? wat hours of pain instead (i had c/section for ds1 after hours of labour induced pain and hated that let alone the pushing stage) ....no . i have my beautiful boy healthy and thriving. some of it was scary and some of it was painful but i dont regret it
The reasons for my non emergency c/section are personal and my own. No. I do not regret any aspect of my daughter's birth. It was a powerful and positive experience :thumbsup:
I was going to have an non medical elective however in this end It was the preferred medical option.
I dont regret it, it was a positive and empowering experience.
There were some negatives - my milk didn't come in until day 6 and DS ended up being comp feed for four months but with preserverence he is now only a boob boy.
I pushed myself with my recovery and was walking the next day and on day 5 the doctor told me that I was as recovered as well as any VB mum. I was lucky.
My DH's DD was a tramatic vaginal birth and being present for DS's birth in a calm environment has had a positive impact on him as well (I will get another baby).
I had done a lot of reseach, attended the hospital C-Section and epidural lectures and was mentally prepared for the birth.
I know there are women here who are passionate about VB and VBAC's - it is a very personal issue, I make the choices that a right for me and I respect the choices that people make for themselves.
I dont regret my decision and my next child will also be C-Section
I had an elective due to medical reasons, but like suemp I was given the choice of a vaginal birth if I wanted to. I weighed up the pros and cons with the two different methods of delievery and felt that a scheduled c-section was safer for both myself and my baby, and we chose that path.
Even though my surgery did not go smoothly (first epi/spinal complications than placenta complications meant the whole process took about three hours) and my recovery was slow and prolonged, I definatly do not regret it! It was the safest and easiest option for myself and my baby and I don't consider it to have been a negative experiance, even with all the complications that happened. I have a beautiful 7 week old baby boy and to me that is WAY more important than how he got into the world. As long as he's safe and healthy then that's all that matters.
mine is kind of a funny storie wel kind of bad funny if that makes sense the very first visit to the OB i told her i was having a c section and there was no two ways about it she was fine with that as she had one her self so we was all happy
But then my DD decided to try and come out at 22 weeks and from then until 15 weeks i was in and out of labour by the time i had a c section i was 5 cm dilated i was having a c section all along but they was trying to keep her in as long as posible but by then i would have had no choice she had already been through so much that i could have a natural birth
I joke around and say that her trying to come out early was pay back time for me saying i wasnt even considering a natural labour
In answer do i feel guily NO way and also i have noticed alot of people say they would have a c section cause it tkes so long to recover but it was so luck i was up walking down to the HDU 15 hours later i was so lucky i didnt even need panadol after 3 weeks i couldnt beleive how good it was i would so have a c section again next time
Both my c-section were extremely positive and I don't regret them for a second. My first was an emergeny after a failed labour and my second was elective for both personal and slightly medical reasons. I think a lot of it is in your attitude. I couldn't have cared less how my babies were delivered as long as they were mine and they came into this world healthy.
When you think about it the actual birth is such a small part of overall motherhood, that it just really doesn't matter how the birth happens.
No way did i regret my decision - even for a moment.
My caesar was empowering and a calm experience.
I have recovered perfectly and enjoy the fact that i am completely intact down below.
