I agree with you. Although the actual c-sec was not painful it scared the crap out of me, but immediately after was great. They quickly checked DS over then DH cut the cord and got to hold him while I was stitched up. Then I was wheeled to the next room - recovery with DH and DS and was given skin to skin and breastfed when DS was ready. DS was with me from then on through the night. Late the next day when I could walk DH and I took DS for his first bath. I would have loved a natural birth but I was really happy with how the c-sec went. Still undecided if i will be VBAC or c-sec next time!

I agree with Dh taking the first moments to connect with their bubbas...such an amazing experience for them, afterall we get everything else. I had a fabulous cs 4 weeks ago, my ob was great dh cut cord after ob clamped it, he pulled bub out slowly joking to guess gender as head was out, i got to touch bub and had a lovely hold while i got stitched up. It was so pleasant it makes me ponder no 3???

I'm glad u did dig it up after i spent yesterday afternoon defending c sections in another thread.
They can be bad experiences in some cases but from what I read and hear from my peers most are quite enjoyable and recovery is no where near as bad as some describe.
Thank you for this great thread

Thankyou for this thread. I had a rather serious tear with my VB, that is still causing trouble with my bowels almost a year later and I am considering having a CS for my next birth. Whenever I mention this to someone I get a lot of negative comments, but I love the idea that I can work with my OB to make the birth of my next child equally as special as my first, but hopefully with a shorter recovery time.

I had an emergency c-section, but i had a plan for if this happened and my son was born in a room full of laughter and love. i have decided that for my next time i will be having a elective c-section and i want the same type of experince like you have written

There can be bad experiences in both I don't get it VB or CS. I've heard equal stories on both.
Can I just add thank you to 4babycinos for this thread

try a VB because of what people thought but then I thought NO this is my baby and MY birth.
I've been prodded and poked and had a few egg collections due to IVf/ICSI so as silly as it might sound I actually feel a little more prepared because all of that was daunting. NOT comparing the pain of course just the scariness of the room filled with masked scary people ha-ha .......I will take any information I can get so thank you.
Oh no you are going to check all my grammar and spelling now aren't you
