Natural vs cesarean birth?
09-08-2012 13:18 #2
As far as I know there is higher incidence of asthma and respiratory problems with bubs born via c section but it doesn't mean they will have these problems it's just That stats are higher for them. My sister and I were born via c section and have never had any problems like that but a higher amount of babies born that way do if that makes sense.
Also goes with that they are more likely to need help breathing ie their airways cleared when they're born as they may have more mucus still present than a baby born via vaginal birth when squeezing them out helps with removing that from their airways.
Typically less risk of hemorrhage and less risk to do with anesthetic obviously. Most likely quicker recovery than a c section though not in some cases I guess it depends on if you have complications or not
I'll shut up now cos you know I've researched this

I was born nat and I have asthma. Both my kids were born by csection and so far they have had no medical reaction to being born that way. I had no choice with my first and 2nd was a personal choice. I had good experiences with both mine and I'm glad I had my children that way

Can tell this thread will get heated but anyway....
My concerns as to why I did not want a cs and I believe natural is best unless recommended by your dr are;
-I want to be able to hold my bub straight away not have a quick look then get bubs back after Dr has finished his surgery
-cs is major surgery and apart from the lengthy recovery time, a lot of people I have spoken to have had trouble with tummy muscles for a long time or indefinately after wards
-There is often bonding issues with bub after a cs
-I didnt need a cs even after a long labour the first time, i was determined to birth naturally unless my ob recommended I have one I wouldn't opt to have one
I had 2 natural births, the first being a long intense labour ending in failed suctionx2 then forcep delivery after 33 hrs of labour, I also had an episiotomy with discomfort for only up to a week after, I healed very well, all back to normal.
Even following that I was not opting for a cs with my second delivery. I had quick 4hr labour second time round Both times I was able to hold bubs right away in which was important to me!

FWIW, while c-section are brilliant in the sense that they can save both the baby and mothers lives and they have their place in obstetrics, I don't think they will ever be a perfect substitute for a vaginal delivery.
Vagina is natural and optimum way to have a baby, because that is how women and babies are built. Of course there are variables- physical and mental illnesses, but generally it is optimum.

Before I reply, are you looking to hear the pro's of both, or just natural?
I had an extremely positive c-section story if you're interested. But your OP seems like you're more after positives of natural birth
