I hate having to justify not taking anything that was offered in my labours. I did it because i was able to and i wouldnt change it.
I have friends who scoff at me for doing it drug free, i support all mothers and their choice of birth, it doesnt matter how bub is born as long as both mother and bub are healthy. I think elective caeseran mums are very brave, i also think they most likely make for a happier mother as they are prepared 100% knowing exactley what the outcome will be and therefore can enjoy their pregnancy and post labour. It must be very empowering to make that decision!
O and i too attended calmbirth and have been laughed at for it...

The question was not had csections but choose csections. I think it is holier than thou if you assume that a woman choosing a csection doesn't know the risks and needs it published after the event or that you need to publish the risk in case other women think ok I might choose to take a similar risk. Once again I am only saying if you want women here giving frank open answers about their choice then don't debate their choice, just hear it and process it. Perhaps I misunderstood the reasons why the question was asked. Perhaps it was to discuss vb and the associated risks versus the risks of csection births. Sorry.
I wanted elective from the start and I got it. Recovery was quick and not much pain at all. I wanted the safe arrival of my baby and a vaginal birth has too many unknowns and risks in my opinion.
There are answers in this thread that prove delirium's point...some women are not educated about c-sections.
