Hi Rozzie. I had a very traumatic "emergency" c-section with my first. I was induced and it was totally out of control. I wanted to be in control of things the second time around and desperately wanted to experience a spontaneous, natural labour and birth. My labour and birth (up until there was a rush to get her out at the end) were incredible and empowering. I loved labour. I wouldn't have been happy having an elective c-section.
I think that if you don't have that longing to experience labour and birth then it's a different story. Go with your gut - if you would be happier having a c-section then that should be totally up to you, but you shouldn't let other women's stories scare you. There are plenty of positive stories. Maybe focus on those
