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

    I agree

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

    After a failed induction with the twins that ended in an emergency c-section under GA I had a terrible recovery. I struggled with it emotionally and physically.
    I had a VBAC in December and would choose a vaginal birth over c-section any day.
    I have heard elective is much easier recovery but I'd still choose vaginal, it may be easier in terms of delivering but recovery from a c-section is much harder.

    I've had 3 vaginal births and 2 c-sections and c-sections are a million times harder.

    I think many women end up with an emergecy c-s for their first, then go elective, so they never realise how much harder it is.

    Labour pain is (in my experience) heinous but afterwards I'm right as rain. It's true a tiny proportion of women have bad tearing etc and damage after vaginal birth, but with a c-section you are *guaranteed* permanent damage to your body.

    If you have any kind of choice, go vaginal. Get an epidural if worried about pain.

    I can't believe anybody would ever choose c-section if they'd experienced both.

    The scar will minimize, I have always been fairly small & after my first 2 my baby belly went in a week if not the first day.

    After my csection I still looked about 5mnths for few weeks & I was devestated, but it's just swelling, give yourself couple of months before you worry

    3 vaginal births and 1 csect.
    and all in all including recovery etc the csect was a million times easier. it took me a very long time to recover from my v births.

    After my vaginal birth there is no way in HELL I will go back for another. I'm really scared about having a c-section but I'm sure the recovery time will be nothing compared to my vaginal birth.

    I am 16 days post Caesar and had a wonderful birth experience.
    I was up after 12 hours and whilst in a little bit of pain, felt great. I had maybe 5 doses of endone over the 4 days post birth, generally at night to help me sleep. I feel almost like I haven't had a baby.

    Both my c sections were magical. The second one was elective, I breastfed on the operating table while they stitched me up which was truly amazing. I was up and walking around no problem within 12 hours. Released from hospital after 48 hours and recovery was fine. I think there are good and bad experiences with both and no one should force their preference on anyone else.

    Every birth is different regardless. Ive had 3 c-secs and they've all been very different. I've also had a 72 hour labour with my 1st born and I still wouldn't say it was easier to just have a c-sec, my 3rd recovery was alot slower then my 1st and my 1st was an emergency. Think it just depends C-secs certainly aren't the "easy option".

    I just realised this is an old thread.

    It seems to me, that there is far too much energy put into this subject. If your child is healthy and well, is it really going to matter in many years time, when you're an old woman looking back over your life, whether or not your baby was born naturally? I mean, really, it won't matter, then, so I wonder why so much focus now?

    Time to move on and debate things that are more important.
