All things being well and normal, a normal birth is the best. For the pain- labour analgesia is available, which helps you deal with labour pains. Caesarean delivery is indicated only when there are maternal or foetal complications. Discuss with your Doctor.
Hope this helps.
From what I've been told the recovery from a c section is so much harder and takes a lot longer. And getting your tummy back in shape is pretty hard too. But I've only had a natural and am planning to have my next natural completely drug free. Praying for no complications that will ruin that plan. :)
I've had both types of birth. A water birth with my son, no pain meds and of course vaginal. With my twincesses I had no choice even though I wanted a vaginal birth again. The smaller baby lay breech first and the bigger on top, transverse, so I had to have a c-section.
I would choose natural and/or vaginal ANY day over c-section!! The pain is intense while you give birth, but then it's over. You heal within two weeks. C-section you have at least 6 weeks of pain and discomfort, all while having a baby (or two!) to care for.... I honestly can't imagine why women will choose a c-section. But that's just me. (",)
