  • C-sections are not fun. Only 3% that are done are actually needed. I was soooo scared when I had mine. I pushed for 5 hours, it just didn't happen for me, my daughters head was pretty much out-when I had to have my c-section...they had to pull her back through. I'm glad it can be done though, I wouldn't have my child otherwise.

  • My baby got stuck at sholders during normal labor, ended in C section. It was not fun.

  • Induced Labor - i have had it and yes it hurts worse than going in to natural labor but i don't EVER EVER want a c-section

  • Neither but if I have to choose, I would be induced. C-section is a procedure that should only be done for medical emergency.

  • natural if possible but I would choose to avoid a c-section unless that was my only option.

  • Induced. I was induced three times with my vaginal deliveries. They were long and painful, but recovery wasn't bad at all. My c-section with the twins wasn't as bad as I thought, but I didn't take them home with me cause they were in the NICU. Sure if they did come home with me I would have managed, but it would have been really hard.

  • My doc says that I can try Induced labor first but to keep in mind that it might still end up in a C-Section

  • If I HAD to pick..induced, but, I prefer to wait and go into labor and have the kid naturally.
