    It's just the original question made me cry a little on the inside that many people don't consider CS as giving birth.

    Don't even get me started on the 'easy way out' comments!

    OT a bit. Mine was elective but I'm still not happy about how it went down.

    Hi there ladies, of course I meant Did you have an elective c-section due to a fear of giving birth NATURALLY/VAGINALLY?

    Apologies for any offence caused. I am looking for a case study for a HIGH PROFILE NATIONAL PARENTING MAGAZINE - if you could email me at contact@jessicajanesammut.com ASAP if you wish to take part, that would be wonderful. The feature will be friendly and non-judgey, showing that women have help at hand and options if they are truly scared of giving birth. Thanks :-)
