Failing is only when someone makes a poor choice.
Implying that a choice was made...

nobody goes around saying "ohhh... you had to have your appendix out! you failure of a person, you"


BUT, you don't get your appendix taken out unless you HAVE to.

But treating a c-section delivery like a tummy tuck?

C-sections are there to save lives. I also have a major problem with Drs inducing people before their due dates
We're ALL impatient for our baby to arrive. We're ALL in agony that last month. We're ALL ready to be done months before the due date. What the heck is wrong with people that they can't wait for nature to take its course????
(granted, there are a few - and I mean FEW - reasons to induce... ) but people need to stop harassing the Drs. Drs are there to assist God, not be God.

hm. well, i thought this thread was about choosing to have a c-section just because, not because one needed to (for whatever reason). it's not what i would do. but i certainly don't want to tell someone how to have their baby. the pain of childbirth can be very frightening, esp. if you've never had a baby before. i find surgery very frightening so there you go! i'd never choose to have a c-section unless it was necessary. but it's none of my business what you (and your doctor/midwife/whomever) decide to do.

well I was induced 2 weeks early and had a c-section and I don't regret it. It was for my comfort but not because of pregnancy but because of my prolapsed disc and the fact that I was barely walking at that stage and the pain level was getting out of control and affecting DD. If I'm so lucky to have another and my back issues have improved I would definitely consider a V-bac..the only issue that gives me the heebie jeebies is even with a v-bac I wouldn't be able to have a spinal or epi because of scar tissue...not that I would want an epi but its nice to know its an option.
C-sections are MAJOR surgery and my recovery was not great due to infection/anaemia etc but its all about the individual isn't it?
