Do babies benefit from contractions if they are born via c-section? I have had 3 sections and was in labor with only one, this was my only baby that came out screaming. This is just a curious question, I am not pregnant. We will ttc#4 in a few years. Call me weird but I got a bigger satisfaction when I went into labor rather than my planned c-section. Also in my opinion none of my c-sections were medically necessary, my first baby was feet first at 39 weeks so they scheduled a section later that day, ever since that I can't find a dr that will allow a vbac. Maybe I can at least control wheather or not I go into labor since no dr will allow me to push my baby out

No, that is nature doing it's job! There are a lot of hormonal benefits-- moms get a rush.
