I had a c-section with my twins. I was not given a choice. I thought it was a really lovely experience. I can't help with the natural birth as I had never had one, but the c-section has fine. Takes abit to get over. I am having another one. You can take your camera in. Your husband can sit beside you. It is not that bad at all. I wish first time around that I new what I now know. This time I am just going to enjoy it.
As for natural birth. The girls in my Mothers Group all say, As long as you keep your pain under control all is good. One of the girls had no pain relief and did't
need it. I think the fear is of the unknown.
All will be fine. Kel x
