    I had one with my second birth, after a 3rd degree tear after my first birth and loads of subsequent research. No regrets but it was hard with a 21 month old to look after too.

    I also had an elective c-section.. I advised my OB as well and she wanted to know why..
    My reasons were that i didn't want to have a v-birth and wanted to avoid the trauma for me and baby..
    I was happy with my c-section apart from the fact that my OB used forceps to pull my DD out... DD was fine but the bruising caused by the forceps to me internally was very painful.. I couldn't recover easily as the other c-section mums..
    I also had an infection internally under the cut.. Antibiotics for 2 weeks cured it..
    Other than that all was fine..

    Yep, next time I will be doing this for sure! Would prefer to have more pain than be up to my eyeballs in painkillers and barely able to speak or eat! It was awful

    Would I be a bad person if I elected a cesarian? Because I dont want a vaginal birth after all the research and classes I've done? Can my ob deny my request for elective cesarian?

    Both my boys were born via c section. First was elective due to medical reasons (placenta praevia so I didn't get a choice). 2nd time round I chose a c section as it was what I knew and it made it easier to plan for when my husband came home (he works away and I didn't want him to miss the birth).

    I had positive experiences both times (first time not quite so much because of the PP).

    Well you can't force a doctor to perform major abdominal surgery on you.....

    If you go private, most are happy to perform one for social/personal reasons, public system very low chance.

    I don't think how you give birth makes you a 'good person' or a 'bad person', and after you've had your baby no one will care anyway! But as PP says unless you have PHI you will have a hard time getting an elective c section in public system.

    I had an elective c section and loved it! I ttc for a long time and I suffered terrible anxiety. My on suggested that I have the c section as I was able to know exactly what was going to happen! Wouldn't have changed it for a thing

    I have private health cover, im unsure of labor the thought scares me to much, knowing that sometimes its hard to get an anethietis to do an epidural scares me, as I would want ro be comfortable not in pain. So if its easier to jave a cesarian then I think thats a big option for me. Just hope nurses and others dont look down on me for my choice of birth plan if I went through with cesarian. ... and then the recover is extended aswel...
