    Default **spin off** csections... Do you think it's just as hard

    As giving birth nat. How do you compare it of you have done both? And of you havnt do you feel your missing out?

    Iv had 2 and feel that they are just as hard (I havnt had a nat tho so it's my opinion) with all the prep time and the after recovery.
    I don't feel like I missed out, I'm kinda glad I had them (breech for first so I had another for the 2nd) I got my due date an got to organise someone to look after ds when I had my 2nd. Although I would of liked to try the nat way. I did say with my 2nd if I go before the csection I wanna try nat. But that never happened.

    Wat about u guys?

    I personally believe its harder. Not the actual birth but the recovery. I have never had one so cant go from experience but its what i believe.

    I believe that a cesarean is an easier birthing process but harder recovery. Ofcourse natural birth is harder than a cesarean, you have to do all the work of dilating and then pushing, with a cesarean you don't have to do any of that (except emergency cesarean). Recovery however is alot hard with a cesarean. I had a 3rd degree tear and still found that easier to recover from than a cesarean.

    Agree with PP, I think the c-sections are harder recovery. The natural birth is harder because of all the pushing, dilating and all that but recovery is a lot easier. I've not had a c-section, but I watched my younger sister recover from hers and it just seemed like a never ending thing, I remember thinking 'wow, and I thought recovering from natural was a pain in the bum, no way.'

    Goodness no, SO much easier. You get a needle in your back , cut open and voila a baby without even breaking a sweat lol. That is an elective c/sction anyway, an emergency is different.

    I've had both an emergency and an elective and while the recovery wasn't the easiest thing in the world, it wasnt terrible. I had no painkillers after DS2s!

    With both I came home and resumed normal household duties like mopping etc and did wonder what everyone goes on about.

    Oh and I still haven't recovered from my natural birth almost 5 years later and never will fully physically heal from it, regardless of all the surgeries.

    I've never had a natural birth, but I would say I agree with others that the birth is easier for c/s but the heal time is much longer than a non complex vb. When I had my first c/s I was shocked how much pain was involved. With my 2nd it was still bad but I knew what to expect and didn't have more than Digesic.

    I would choose a natural any day, but then I had a very traumatic first c/s, so I understand those that had terrible vb's favouring c/s.

    I had a c section and I don't feel like I've missed out at all. Not in the slightest.

    To be honest, it really gets up my nose people who complain about having had an emergency CS. They feel "robbed" or what ever. You and your baby are healthy. That's all that matters, and without the CS it may be a different story.

    Surgery scares me. I have never had surgery before and cannot understand how people can think it would be easy when layers of muscle and tissue are cut open. From water's breaking (first sign of labour) to baby at breast was under 2 hours. I felt pressure at the head coming out, but the actual "work" was easier and less strenuous than training for state swimming titles or a gym workout. When people say someone is taking the easy way out I just think they are looking for a reason to judge.
