I just really didn't want to go through labour and all that it entailed! Hours of pain, exhaustion, possible complications, actually pushing the sucker out, possible stitches, pain and possible problems 'down there' afterwards, not knowing when or how it was going to happen, not being in control...

Plus I had been through major abdominal surgery before and had no fear of it.

My CS was fantastic - calm, enjoyable, chatting with surgical staff and DH til DD made an appearance, holding her while they stitched me up and in recovery. I had very very little pain afterwards, thanks to a good surgeon and great pain killers.

Would highly recommend it!
