    Just reread my birth story for DD and realised I didn't mention that my 'up and about' time was much sooner than it was with DS.

    Knowing what to expect make a huge difference. Loco, are you going through the same hospital as your last? Have you asked them to break down their c-section procedure for you? I did this, even though it was the same hospital, just to make sure nothing had changed.

    Ah silly me. Yes you absolutely should. Write it down too if you can so you can read over it the morning of.

    Wondering 'wth is going on?' during the day of your c-section can be a little overwhelming, I think the more I knew about what was happening, the more in control I felt.

    Most hospitals have the same procedures, but do ask 'can you run me through what to expect on the day?'... ie what happens when you check in, what happens during the spinal, what happens in theater, when will I first see bubs, when does bubs get weighed, when does bubs get their shots, who will be in theater, what pain relief will I get after, when will I get it...

    If the MW or whoever you're talking too isn't very thorough or just gives you a sheet about the actual procedure, ask more questions, it's not only the surgical part that can feel unknown or overwhelming. I've unfortunately found some MWs to be a bit dismissive of the c-section experience.

    I'm very excited for you and I hope it all goes smoothly.

    Blissedout - I will do thank you so much for that
    I'm to scared to talk to midwives about CS they are not supportive at all so I guess I will have to ask more and more. My OB is pretty good so I'll get details off him. Can't wait to add my positive empowering story to all of yours.

    I have been researching c/s for a while. I have had 2 ops for endometriosis, and I am a massive control freak. My only problem is I will be going through the public system and will more than likely have no choice. I have no psychological reasons to want one, and the midwives are quite pro natural.

    The thing is I do worry about being judged as I am a bit of a hippy, lol and I will be cosleeping and baby wearing and breastfeeding etc etc, so I'm torn as I feel like if I'm going to do the others then why not the vb??

    Sorry for venting, But I am also making sure I subscribe to this thread

    Lol. I baby wear and cosleep. You don't have to fit any certain stereotype, lol.

    I understand the control freak factor, it's one of the many reasons I chose to have a c-section the second time around.

    What were your endometriosis (sp?) ops like? Where did they operate into?

    I don't know much about endometriosis, but if they cut into your uterus (like they do in a c-section) then you might be able to wrangle one. Lol.

    Why are CS not allowed in public system? What do you mean no choice?
