watching your own c-section?

Would anyone be interested in that? I think if they cut me open I would want to see what's in there.

  • no to me that'd be nerve wracking. for one thing, i get nervous being exposed to the world, and you are naked from the waste down tied to a table, i feel its a little more exposed than vaginal birth, but i haven't had a vaginal birth so i may be wrong but ya i've had 2 c-sections and i def would not want to see inside myself. maybe if someone taped it i could watch it later, but while its happening the whole lots of blood thing would make me nervous and i'd be wondering "is that supposed to look like that?"

  • My mom had a c section with me and watched she said it was neat. I probably would. But I would want to think about it. lol I would hope to know I needed one ahead of time. If it were last minute I might just pass.

  • No interest for me and I've had 3 of them already. It wouldn't gross me out or anything, I just want it done as quickly as possible so I can get back to my room and hold my baby.

  • Never had one. But I would be scared shitless to have one and even more afraid to watch! I didn't even want to watch my vaginal delivery!
