    For the birth itself the C-Section wins hands down. It was an elective C-Section with my twins.

    For the recovery afterwards the VB. Even after an episiotomy.

    eta: My VB ended up being an induction (water broke then nothing)

    I wont have much help unfortunately. A little here and there but my parents both work and live a fair distance away so if I'm being realistic, there wont be an awful lot of support. Saying that, the older children are quite independent, so its only the littlies that will need my constant attention.

    Looking after the kids on your own after a c/s will be virtually impossible. You won't be able to lift things or strain yourself cause you can open the stitches or possibly get an infection which would see you in hospital for even longer.
    It's major surgery, it won't be painless or freely able to move, clean, run around etc. You will have to take it easy no matter what, it's a given with cesaers.

    will your Dh be home? i came home from hospy on the 7th day due to waiting for bubby to be let out of special care. i had an almost 3yo an asd 7yo and a helpful 13 yo. i found managing the kids and house much easier than expected and much much easier than after my previous vbs. i had dh to help out a bit though with lifting pram capsule washing baskets etc

    He'll be home for a couple of weeks at the most.

    Such a hard decision to make. I have to say, I am now leaning more towards an early induction and VB but will monitor how big bub gets in the lead up...
