Thanks Anabella. But I didn't ask "why anyone would have a vb when a c/s is available".. I just asked what the reasons behind choosing an elective c/s are.
I had a vb when a c/s was available.
I totally agree with you on the Pethadine and the gas.. did nothing for the pain for me (personally), just made me feel off my face!
The epidural, on the other hand, was great. I didn't even feel the needle going in (due to the contraction pain far out weighing that). I was able to actually have a nap as the pain subsided and had enough feeling by the time I actually pushed to move and feel the contractions tightening, just no pain.
I agree with you though, there are very serious risks that need to be considered, but they are quite rare..
However, she seems to think it's completely appropriate to attempt to ridicule me for planning a drug-free vaginal Hypnobabies birth. When I said to her my student midwife may be allowed to catch bub as he or she comes out, she said in a loud, obnoxious tone "OH are you going to SHOOT the baby out?!" This is not the worst she's come out with - constant comments about how different/unsatisfying s3x surely MUST be with a stretched vagina for example. But she's an idiot and I doubt there are many people, let alone elective c-sectioners, like her.
@Hopefully2, I don't get it? Is this directed at me??
If in any of my posts you have found anything I have said as disrespectful, I urge you to re-read them as I think you've made a mistake.
I have said all along that i'm simply asking out of curiousity.. If you knew me in real life you'd see I do not judge any body, for any reason.
Which post mislead you?

Information is power. If a woman knows exactly what she's up for, is educated then meh her choice. I really couldn't give a fudge.
anyway I'll bow out my intention was not to offend but simply to put the info out there
I also said I would choose it too, but had a vb because I fear being cut open for CS..
how is that in any way disrespectful and "asking for it?"??

Delirium this wasn't the opportunity for you to presume that you are the educational authority on csection risk. It wasn't asked what r the risks are it was asked of women who choose this why we did. Women opened up to be shot down by holier than thou attitude. If you sincerely want to have an open forum allow yourself the opportunity to believe that most people here are informed and educated.
