    Default Has anyone had an elective c section after a relatively normal vaginal birth?

    Just wondering if anyone has made this choice? And was it worth it, or would you have chosen another vaginal birth if you could turn back the clock?

    I have. I elected for a c-section with my second child because bub was breech. First birth was a straightforward vaginal birth with no complications. I don't regret it but I wouldn't have had a c-sec if bub was not breech. I found the recovery much harder than the recovery from the vaginal birth.
