    I had two natural births then a c/s for my third. C/S would never be my preference, I still went through the labor until 10cm dilated but she was face presentation so had to emergency c/s. So I was exhausted after the surgery but the 8 hours of labor prior didn't help. But for me the C/S recovery is SO much harder and for me the actual birthing experience was really different. I loved the natural births and being able to hold bubs skin on skin immediately after bubs came out for over an hour.

    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.
    I agree, I was the same after having emergency c-section.

    I'm used to reading the notion that I'm a whinger for saying I feel robbed getting stuck with c/s bc I should just be happy the baby was healthy. People don't seem to process they are 2 different emotions - of course I'm happy my kids were healthy, doesn't mean I'm not sad.

    I couldn't be bothered arguing anymore though. Yep we're a pack of ungrateful whingers

    This.

    I was a victim of a busy schedule and an OB who wanted my baby out. I wasn't strong enough to say 'hang on, my baby isn't in distress or anything. I don't want to do this' I put my trust in someone who wasn't really concerned about my feelings. I'm still coming to terms with it all and feel very let down. There are a number of reasons why I feel robbed. Birth to many people isn't just a means to an end. I would recommend watching 'The face of Birth'. You may begin to understand why some people struggle with birth trauma and issues regarding labour/birth.

    Ive had both, C/section (after a 12-13 hour labour) was much much much worse then my natural no drugs vaginal birth.

    recovery
    emotionally
    and during the birth
    but especially after. it no joke took me over 6 months to even sit up without being in pain from my c/section

    i was up and about pretty much straight after my natural. just a bruised bum bone

    I don't feel like I missed out, I've had a vb and 2 c/sections both scheduled. I thought they were both awful, I got infections after each and every birth and the last one ended up having to take 31 courses of anti biotics, I really thought I was going to die at one point.

    I've never had a VB, but have been there for several. I definitely think a CS is easier (under normal elective circumstances), if they weren't I might've opted for a VBAC.

    My recoveries were both pretty easy. Was shopping in malls again after 2 days.

    I think it's unfair to say how someone should feel following a birth. I know someone who is very structured. She found out the sex of the baby, had labels done up for his room, bottles, etc, had personalised lunchbox, backack, drinking bottle, sippy cup, bowls, etc, had the birth announcement ready to go with name and birth date because she had the planned elective c-section and just had to wait to add birth length, weight and photo. Then she went into labour and delivered at home when the ambulance arrived. Also many on here feel they had an unnecessary c-section.
