    Default Why do they choose to a CS?

    Having just read a post from a user about her considering an elective CS, I just wanted to know why some women choose it? I'm just curious, have absolutely nothing against it (my mum had 5 CS and I was born through CS section) just wanting to know why they opt for them? Is it purely out of fear due to the pain etc associated with labour? Has anyone on here opted for an elected CS? In my mind I'd actually fear being cut open as opposed to labour. But I fear regular childbirth equally!
    Also, why do some people judge women who opt for an elective CS? Is it because of the way society has made it appear that these women are "weak" not able to cope with the pain?
    As I said, I am pro choice, your body, your baby. Just curious to hear from women who have gone the elective CS route and their reasons?

    I would consider it for my next as I had a bad birth... and I don't want to do any more damage than whats there

    Also, some sexual assault victims choose elective C/s

    Medical issues too..

    My first was an elective, but was medically necessary.

    I really enjoyed my first experience so decided to do it again with my second.

    My mum had 3, first 2 emergency after over 12 hours in labour with her and us nearly dying, 3rd classed as elective, but in the 80s she would never have been allowed a vaginal birth after 2 c-sections. Surgery terrifies me, having drugs terrifies me, so drug free vaginal birth was my aim and luckily I got it.

    I had a really really bad experience with my first child with a c/s, so when I come to this forum I could not understand why in hell anyone could choose it.

    But from my experience being here a long time, the biggest reason is not to posh to push, but many women that have had extremely traumatic vb's.

    I just had what they call an elective Caesarian but I didn't have a choice as it was medically necessary due to grade 3 placenta praevia.

    and I wanted to add I hate that such things as breech and placenta previa which the hospitals make you have, is classed as elective. I didn't elect it thanks and had I been able to I would of birthed naturally
