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?
