    Default To the elective C section Mummas :)

    Hey Mummas,

    So my friend had an emergency c section with her first & she is now pregnant again... She was wanting to do a VBAC but has changed her mind. This is her last child & she's worried she might regret not being able to experience 'real child birth' (vaginal birth)... So it's got me thinking... Did any of you regret your decision? Did you feel like you would have liked to experience the vaginal birth??

    I had an emergency c-section with my DD due to failure to progress and bub going into distress. I am almost 38 wks along and am having an elective this time and well have never really felt any regret about my decision. Tho I did watch my 16yr old sister deliver her 9pound 2 baby boy all natural and i think for me that was more then enough of an experience for me lol :-P

    I have had 3 electives (2 though were not my choice) the 2nd was 14 months after my first they gave me a choice... I chose csection... I regret that choice. I wish I had more information and support.

    My first was emergency c section and my 2nd was elective. they were only 13 months apart and I was far to scared and anxious to try for a vbac. I have honestly never regretted my choice for one second but each mother is different.

    My first was an elective CS, and this next bubba will be too. Not a single regret. I don't need to experience a baby coming out of my vag to be a great mum. The way she was born doesn't change who she is and it doesn't change how we feel about each other. 100% happy with my choice. I wanted a baby, not a birthing experience.

    I had an emergency section followed by an elective. No regrets here but I have always seen birth as a means to an end and was never really interested in the "birth experience".

    Only your friend knows how she feels not every woman feels the same way about it.

    I've seen a few vaginal births and... I don't feel like I'm missing out.

    My first was an emergency CS. I regret not pushing for an elective before he was born. My second was an elective and it was fantastic! Recovery was harder the second time around but I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

    I'm the same as Daily. I was always more interested in the product of the pregnancy rather than the method.
