  • Well for me it wasn't bad. I had an emergency c-section too, so a planned one should be even better. The excitement of having the baby around diminished the pain from the c-section, and the recovery time wasn't nearly as long as I imagined.

  • its not bad at all..I wouldnt do it any other way. its go in there they put in an epideral...then they check and make sure that you cant feel anything..then, they perform the surgery. I like it cause you cant feel anything. the only thing you feel is tugging. and that is it. You usually have to be careful for like 2 weeks after. It is a little harder cause you cant really do much help with the baby. but, it makes it easier for people to wait on you, so let them take care of you. you will wish later you would have rested more if you didnt. You get to see the baby right when they take the baby out. And then they sew,or staple you closed..and boom your done. its about an 1 1/2 procedure. I think it is less harmful on the baby to have a csection. because of less stress on the baby

  • Definately have to stay in bed fr a while. I have never had a c-sec but my mom had one with me and my brother. She said it was harder to recuperate then when she gave birth vaginally.
