    I gave birth vaginally, so did my sister, so did my mum. In fact of all the women in my family (aunts, cousins incl.) the only one that I can recall having a c/section is my step sister, for her second child. I know of a few in my circle of friends and my sister's circle of friends who had c/sections but I can think of plenty who had natural births.

    I think the emergency cs rate is about 25%, a bit more in private hospitals, from memory.

    To OP I think many are being pressured into c sec (i am in that process right now!!) and one of my friends were telling me at my baby shower on the weekend that she would definately reccommend c sec after having 2 (yeah she hadnt experienced natural birth and had nothing to compare it to! haha) anyway I suppose it is becoming more and more common. If you want vaginal birth though, stick to your guns, I was told this morning to book in for c sec and refused and after a huge meltdown to DH I feel much better and back in control lol. good luck with your birth!!!

    I lost my post?!?

    Anywhos - I have had two vaginal births.
    So *hands Up* i have.

    I know people who have had vaginal and c/s... does having a c/s make me think any less of them? No.
    I'd say the majority of people i know have had vaginal.

    op

    I had a natural drug free birth and my DD was nearly one week overdue. Just relax and think postively

    Also if it so happens and you do require a cesarean then don't be upset or anything. Just remember that your birth was beautiful and special because it gave you your little one!

    Another tip - stop googling and reading bad birth stories!! You'll feel much better for it

    DW is scared and wants to have a c-section (her first birth).

    Should she?

    Personally.. (and who is a man to say??) ... i dont think a woman should have one unless she medically requires it.

    Have you got a mum/aunt/grandmother you could talk to? V births were much more common in the 'olden days' so perhaps they can help. I got most of my advice from my mum who had a few V births.

    I had a v birth, although had foceps used. Not fun. Not what I consider natural but many women still do birth naturally
