I found a great video on YouTube and it made me a little teary.. I wonder if we can birth like this in the public system.

I'm so pleased to have found this thread. I had such a wonderful c-section experience and it's great to hear others being positive about it also. I wish I had read these posts during my pregnancy. I read a lot about how women struggle with feeling like a failure from having to have a caesar, and while I'm really thankful that's not me, I always felt like I was a 'bit wrong' for being pleased that I had to have a c-section.
I had an accident as a teenager that has left me unable to have a vaginal birth and this has never bothered me one bit! Finding out that I was able to have a baby at all was the best news. The only problem with my birthing experience was that DD decided to come early and I went through contractions. That was not part of my plan. Silly me though, for 48 hours I thought I was having really annoying braxton hicks. When they were 10 min apart, I conceded and headed to the hospital. I ended up having an emergency c-section instead of an elective one and the only differences were that it was 10 days earlier and the anaesthetist's fees were higher (after hours!).
Aside from the contractions everything was great. DH was with me, I got to hold DD straight away and skin to skin started really quickly. In fact, I loved my hospital experience so much that I didn't want to go home. Recovery at home was great and after a few weeks I physically felt pretty normal (mentally though... well, I'm a first time mum so that's a different story!)
Thanks for letting me share.

Ive been reading this to try and get over the fact i may need a csec. as lovely as the stories are they arnt making me feel any better, though i have enjoyed reading it. Maybe if i keep coming back to it it will start getting better over time.
How much resistance from your hospital did you encounter when asking to do things differently?

Sorry Indigo - I just went with standard hospital procedure for mine, which wasn't an issue for me. Our hospital is a 'teaching' hospital, so we have most of the up to date modern approaches to c-sections, which made me happy.
I have my next c-section in less than 2 weeks!
