  • Not sure if the depression is about the pregnancy being over, the baby really coming or the c-section. What part seems to bother you?

  • Maybe because c-sections have emotional downsides to them. I hated mine even though it wasn't planned. I regret getting one done since it wasn't medically neccesary. You might think harder about the decision to get one.
