    Peanut brittle - I have a coupe of friends that have the same problems as you it's not nice I am sorry I hope you completely recover
    Yes I don't mention it to anyone anymore and I don't even mention it on the Hub because I have seen it can be very judgmental here to. The only reason I am discussing it on this thread is because I am hoping it does stay as an "empowering thread" and it is not invaded by BH members wanting to start a debate in here I hope we can feel safe in this thread discussing our excitement and empowerment.

    My DH loves the idea of a c section it's great having at least his support. Oh and my mum she has had two easy VB and she even said go c section

    Are you seeking people's caesarean birth experiences? I have some things I've written that I'm happy to PM you if you like.

    I tend to run off at the mouth, so PM is the way to go (and even then I've had to split it into two!). Rest assured mine are positive and happy experiences; much to the annoyance of some BH members I have very few negative things to say about caesareans. However, please bear in mind that some people do have negative experiences, and if you would like to be truly prepared it really is worth your while reading their birth stories as well.

    I'm not sure about 4babycinos, maybe PM her?

    This is a beautiful thread to see. And so glad it hasn't turned negative or been hijacked

    I've had 4 c/s, and yes, the theatre room itself is always freezing, but the people are always joyful, and warm, and so lovely - a baby is arriving in the world, how could anyone not be?!

    Every time I have got the shakes at the start - just thinking about the spinal being put in gets me nervous. But every time the anaesthetist and midwives have been chatty and made me calmer and comfortable. I've been taken straight back to my room with my baby immediately after being stitched up (except for DD1 who had to go and have fluid suctioned from her lungs first - DH stayed with her). Have had them skin to skin on my chest & bf'ed as soon as they are ready, no attachment issues - I have been very very lucky.

    All my children's c/s births have been unique and joyful and wonderful - DH & I have cried at every one of them So glad there's more positive c/s stories out there!
