  • I had a c section, so honestly Id like to try a vaginal birth.

  • Vaginal. I am terrified of a csection, that is why I refused the epidural because I didn't want an increased risk of one.

  • Vaginal!!! I had an emergency c-section for my twins & omg!! I can't imagine why, unless there is a health issue or an emergency (like mine), anyone would want a c-section!! LOL, that's just how I feel.

  • vaginal...just ask my last OB, we fought over it.

  • Definitely a vaginal birth. I had a vaginal birth and yeah it hurt but recovery time is much faster, there is less risk to baby and mother, less risk of infection, and you don't really need someone there helping you do everything.

  • Well, I've never had a c-section... I don't really want to try one, but if I needed one I wouldn't fight it.

    I'm hoping for vaginal - with epidural - like I had the last two times!

  • Vaginal. That is how our bodies were designed.

    I have nothing against a C-section, if the mom or baby is in danger, but no way would I willingly opt for a major surgery rather then just push.

    I have had 2 babies, and I pushed them both out. I was offered a c-section, the hospital even tried to talk me into it, with my 1st and I told the nurse to get out of my room and not to dare come back.

  • I had both My first was refusing to come out so we had to do the c-sec I was cut from my belly button to my "down there" hair line and was un able to walk for the 1st 3 days. I missed out on important stuff like changing his 1st diaper and his 1st bath because I just couldn't move. I had to live with my in-laws for the 1st week home. I had a VBAC for my 2nd and was up in running the same day. I hate to be negative but through my experance I would say anyone who chooses a c-section is mad!
