    Default my elective csection was the best

    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.

    Default my elective csection was the best

    I agree! I had a c-section as my baby was breech and declined to have an ECV. I was worried about it all and the recovery but it really wasn't as bad as I made it out to be in my head prior. I had a spinal instead of epidural so I was able to get up after 4hrs and have a shower and get around which was great! Now almost 8 weeks on (tomorrow), I'm feeling great and bubs has settled nicely! There needs to be more positivity with c-sections.

    If anyone has any questions feel free to message me!
