I understand it seems to be common practice in the celebrity world to deliver their children by c-section which leads the general public to believe it has to do with wanting to avoid a long and messy delivery...and in a way shadows all c-sections births with that air of vanity so to speak. I delivered both my children by c-section because I have a narrow pelvic arch and could not deliver them vaginally. For the first time yesterday I actually had a woman give me dirty looks and tell me I didn't really give birth to me kids. Why do people who haven't had a c-section assume its a walk in the park? C-sections aren't easy either. I went through hell with my first and with my second I nearly died - the anesthesia numbed my lower ribs and as an asthmatic my brain started freaking out and my respiration and oxygen levels dropped dangerously low. If I have another I will most likely be put completely out to avoid another panic attack.Answer Question

I believe either way its going to be hard and looking down on someone for it is wrong. You carried the child and as a vaginal birth you were assisted and directed so tell that woman yes I did give birth with more direction.

Because people like to judge others. Also we are in an era of the natural childbirth and c-section is not "natural". In all honesty though I believe any birth that results in a healthy mom and healthy baby to be a successful birth.

As was said above, some women just like to judge other women, they never really grow out of their catty Jr High behavior. I truly believe it is a way for them to justify their own mistakes in life and make them feel better about themselves, the same reason they did it as little girls. As for giving birth, I had 3 vag births and they hurt like a mother, but afterwards I only walked a little funny for a few days. lol C-sections are a whole different kind of hurt, AND danger in and of itself, it's surgery after all. So neither is more courageous or better than the other:)
