    Natural is obviously always the better option if it can be done. I had an emergency caeser with my first under a GA, I bonded with her straight away and my milk came in fast and I always had a very abundant supply. I did have a lengthy stay in hospital due to infection though. My DD has no asthma issues, she has a few allergies but mainly to insects and medications and that is hereditary on DPs side of the family. This time I am having an elective due to previous pregnancy related issues but if without those complications I would love to go natural as you heal faster and as I said previously I believe natural is always the better choice but only if it is the safest option for you.

    Hi, i did not read all this sorry if this has already been said. Believe it or not, i will be having my 3rd c-section with this baby but I am pro natural birth. The process of natural birth release hormones that matures the baby's respiratory system and dygestive system, recovery time for mum is much shorter if mum did not have a traumatic birth. C-sections, is faster and there is less physical trauma for bubs depending n the situation. In my opinion c-sections are for women with issues during pregnancy or labour, baby needs to go through the getting ready process and a c-section is by no means an easy way out for mum, it is a major operation with a long recovery time....and I can promise you after birth pains with a cut in your tummy...is no joke!
