I've never experienced a natural birth. I've had 5 caesareans. The first, under general anaesthetic wasn't ideal as I took a while to come out of the anaesthetic and it was many hours before I saw him. Everything clicked into place once I had him in my arms - the other 4 caesaren births were amazing. I was overwhelmed with love for my babies, so having a caesarean had no impact on my bonding experience. It also didn't impact on breastfeeding.
I had no complications, pain was bearable and I have had no issues since giving birth. For me, it was about the baby and their birth day is but one day. There is so much more that comes after.
For me, having my babies by caesarean was a fantastic experience.
