    You DO NOT have to have a c section if you do not want one. You have the right to refuse surgery. The risks increase with every c section and your putting both you and your baby in danger.

  • I did and was fine. I had them in June 2000, October 2001 and November 2002. Each was uneventful and recovery went just as smooth. 2 1/2 weeks after having my 3rd c-section in just over 2 years I was cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Not that I had a choice. My husband wasn't even home most of the day so I was also taking care of a newborn, 13mo and a 2yo.
    Just take it easy and relax.
