I am 16 wks preg with #2 and I was to elect a c-section because of the bad experience i had with DS. The main fact being that DF and i both missed the birth of DS as i was sent for an elective C-section after wanting a natural, drug free water birth and got none of the above which i understand that you will most likely get the complete opposite of what your birth plan is but when the spinals and epidurals didn't work and i had to get put under a g.a I was so upset that when i awoke he was all bathed, dressed and asleep. So for this one i want to elect a c-section so that having it planned both DF and i will be at least able to see bubs after they are born and also will get the 1hr bonding time i did not get with DS. Being that as it may some people think i am taking the "easy" way out and now i'm starting to wonder am i? I would like to try a VBAC but i am also scared of the risks involved.
