  • If you have trouble with your blood, then a c-section is more risky because the chances of hemmorage are much higher with major surgery.

    Research coping the bradley method or some form of self-hypnosis (really just self-relaxation). There are different programs...hypnobirthing, hypnobabies, and this one (downloadable affordable) --

    Last time, it may have been you weren't prepared and didn't know how to cope. There is no reason why the second time has to be the same.
