i have a scheduled c-section set for the 27th of this month and my husband is very against it. i am terrified of a vaginal birth. i don't want the vaginal trauma, razor blades when i pee,tearing,not being intimate for 2-6 months or more, and all that. i am very depressed. i was very excited about the c-section until a few days ago when my husband began listening to his mother and telling me that i will regret it and that i am going to die or kill the baby. i have an awesome doctor and i am positive that i and the baby will be fine. i am so sad that no one is supporting me. i go to sleep crying now and i wake up crying too. i cry because of how scared i am of delivering vaginally. i don't think its healthy to feel like i do. i was happy when i was going to get the c-section, but now i am considering having the vaginal delivery not because i want to, but because that is what my husband and his family want. what should i do?Answer Question

If your scared of a vaginal delivery then you should have the c-section. I've delivered both ways and neither is worse than the other. They're just different. Don't let them make you feel bad for being scared. But a vaginal birth is not that bad. I prefer it. But you should feel good about the delivery, after all it is YOUR body giving birth. I personally would just tell them that when they carry a baby in their belly for nine months then they can choose how to deliver it. But nobody will even be thinking of the birth once the baby is born.
