Ive also wanted a section for a while. But every mom I speak to about it advises against it. But I will be talking to my Dr about it as well.
Can I ask why you are leaning towards a c section? ? Is there a medical issue?
I'm just wondering because I had an emergency c section on my last baby. I found the recovery to be long and I couldn't do things like drive for six weeks. When the six weeks were up it was still uncomfortable.
I also wanted to breast feed but my milk didn't come for about 5 days after the baby. I not 100% sure if the section was the reason but I've read it can effect it.
I think it's a good idea to have a discussion with your doctor.
Medical reasons. There is a chance the umbilical cord and placenta can a become unattached during birth. It creeps me out.
I have had 2 c sections and heading for my 3rd. First was an emergency, 2nd baby was breach and because I have had 2 I have to have the 3rd a c section. I recovered fine. So hopefully I will again this time. I don't know what it like to have a normal birth so can't compare. I do know they recommend 2 yrs between sections and also they recommend you only have 3. But that's ok with me.
2 of my cousins had 4. But they never complained about it.
I would strongly advise against it , everything about it during and afterwards sucked .
Yes it ***** and feels like your having the baby...everybody think it's the easy way out but it's not
