I had an emergency c/s with DD and I have to say I didn't realise there were any beliefs that you couldn't BF due to a c/s. I will admit it was a bit more awkward at first due to my own paranoia about my scar but that it was it. I had no more trouble BF after the c/s as I did the VB.

I had a Caesar and breastfeeding came naturally to us, even though DS was prem and in NICU. 15 months on and he's still breastfed. I've fed my csection baby longer then my VB baby, I only made it to 2 weeks with DD.

I had an emergency section at 31+5 weeks with DS2 and now six months later we are still exclusively breastfeeding. HARD work - pumping round the clock for weeks on end, repeated bouts of mastitis and add a mega tongue tie to the mix.
I was hand expressing after my section into a cup as soon as I got back to my room. It definitely can be done with the right knowledge and support.
