    I agree with you. Although the actual c-sec was not painful it scared the crap out of me, but immediately after was great. They quickly checked DS over then DH cut the cord and got to hold him while I was stitched up. Then I was wheeled to the next room - recovery with DH and DS and was given skin to skin and breastfed when DS was ready. DS was with me from then on through the night. Late the next day when I could walk DH and I took DS for his first bath. I would have loved a natural birth but I was really happy with how the c-sec went. Still undecided if i will be VBAC or c-sec next time!

    I agree with Dh taking the first moments to connect with their bubbas...such an amazing experience for them, afterall we get everything else. I had a fabulous cs 4 weeks ago, my ob was great dh cut cord after ob clamped it, he pulled bub out slowly joking to guess gender as head was out, i got to touch bub and had a lovely hold while i got stitched up. It was so pleasant it makes me ponder no 3???

    I'm glad u did dig it up after i spent yesterday afternoon defending c sections in another thread.
    They can be bad experiences in some cases but from what I read and hear from my peers most are quite enjoyable and recovery is no where near as bad as some describe.
    Thank you for this great thread

    Best wishes for your birth! I found it helpful to be prepared for the experience, because it is very different to a vaginal delivery. While people in this thread (myself included) have tried to debunk the notion of the emotional coldness of a caesarean, you should be prepared for a few things. The room will be cold and bright, there will be a few strange machine sounds, and there will be many more masked people than you may have expected. I think these things can scare women, and add to their impression of "coldness"; however it's possible to view these things as physical, and completely separate from the emotional tone of the room.

    Again, best wishes .

    Thankyou for this thread. I had a rather serious tear with my VB, that is still causing trouble with my bowels almost a year later and I am considering having a CS for my next birth. Whenever I mention this to someone I get a lot of negative comments, but I love the idea that I can work with my OB to make the birth of my next child equally as special as my first, but hopefully with a shorter recovery time.

    Thank you for this great thread
    I try not read anything negative anymore and I have quickly learnt not to discuss it IRL either. Its not fair because I am really looking forward to my C-Section and I have one of the best doctors doing it but I can't even be excited about it because people IRL try and talk me out of it......
    There can be bad experiences in both I don't get it VB or CS. I've heard equal stories on both.



    Can I just add thank you to 4babycinos for this thread

    Lambjam thank you for your wishes I am very excited. I've always seen myself giving birth in this way but at the beginning of this pregnancy I tried to pretend to myself that I would
    try a VB because of what people thought but then I thought NO this is my baby and MY birth.

    I've been prodded and poked and had a few egg collections due to IVf/ICSI so as silly as it might sound I actually feel a little more prepared because all of that was daunting. NOT comparing the pain of course just the scariness of the room filled with masked scary people ha-ha .......I will take any information I can get so thank you.


    Oh no you are going to check all my grammar and spelling now aren't you
