Just been reflecting on my births with friends and thought I'd share. I was miserable about a cs before and during recovery. Now I'm over it and realised my cs was my best beautiful birth. My vbs memories are negative, I remember the pain, panic, tiredness. I don't even remember their first cries.
My memories of my elective cs are so much more positive. I also felt out of control at first but not like vb, I loved being able to feel bub coming out with a smile on my face, I remember his cry clearly and the first time I saw his face.
Thought I'd share my positive experience for those nervous or feeling down about a cs like I was.
