I think that a C-Section is worse on your body and takes away from the experience of becoming a mother and being able to immediately hold your baby afterword. It takes longer to heal, and leaves a lifelong scar, whereas a vaginal birth is a very bonding experience for you and your family, you heal within a few weeks, and have memories that you will never forget.
WOW. How sad.
I had two c-sections and bonded just fine, thank you very much. If I actually took that answer serioulsy - now I have to feel competitive over how I gave birth? That must be how it starts for some women - they are so completey insecure about themselves that they actually have to downgrade someone else's birth experience.
I think the question is very broad but I can tell you this - HOW you give birth is not nearly as important as getting a healthy baby out of you and into the world. That's the end goal.

Yeah Wimsey, that whole not bonding via C-section is a totally whack statement! After my last two sons were born via C-section, they immediately brought him to me and we bonded just like I did with the three I birthed. (one birth was still born). When I say it's worse I mean physically worse, in that your body doesn't naturally secrete the birthing hormones when you have a C, the surgery is MAJOR surgery and recovery is a HUGE painful bit**, your body doesn't naturally do what it is suppose to do in that the contractions after birth that naturally strengthen your uterus back, doesn't happen, you have major scar tissue issues, harder to loose all the skin weight, and your not up and running as fast as you would be for vaginal. I don't think that either is in any way better for bonding and that nonsense. Mine was medical, I HAD to have a C with my last two, wouldn't be something I would just choose to do.....
