  • Vaginal at home. Why would you CHOOSE to have a major surgery?

  • I had an emergency csection with our daughter and a repeat with our son. I wish I could have experienced actual childbirth but since it was for their safety I have no problem with how they were born. Some people would prefer a csection but it can be planned ahead of time

  • Definitely prefer the vaginal.

    I want to do what is safest and most enjoyable-- as naturally as can be!

  • Vaginal. I've done both; while my C-section went as smoothly as it possibly could, my vaginal birth was still infinitely better. With vaginal, it might hurt more during, but you don't have nearly as much recovery time as with even the best C-section.

  • Well, that seems rather obvious. Vaginal. BUT if there was a problem, I would agree to a C-Section for the sake of my baby. I do trust Doctors.

  • Vaginal- is better for you and the baby, but i have to say i liked my c-section!
