Do you regret it?
Not at all! Happy to do it again. I healed quickly & was back doing most things within weeks.
Is it what you always wanted?
Yes. It was pretty much close to "perfect". No pain, no stress, lots of love & lots of bonding skin on skin with my baby in recovery. Loved it.
Did people try and put you off?
No - because I didn't tell them! Only a few people knew I was booked in, so that meant I could surprise everyone when our bub arrived. I am sure a few people passed judgement in private, but that says more about them than me.
Was your OB all for c section?
Ob (private) was happy to support whatever birth I was most comfortable with. He was happy to do CS in the best interests of my health & baby's health. He did make me do some reading first to make sure I understood the risks involved. He was fantastic & there was no judgement cast from any of the hospital staff.
