  • No, not personally, but i do know that i was very close when i had a c-section. But mine was not typical---emergency 4 months premature.

  • No. never even ever heard of anyone passing away from it. You will be fine!

  • I don't think you can die of a c-section. A person might die of some sort of complications from one but not from the c-section itself. Make sure you are healthy before going in and you will be fine.

  • nope, i know many ppl who had csection and they are much much older than me, so the csection was performed back in 20 oe 30 years ago and no one even close to death. The most is you need a blood transfusion or infection that's about it. I'm having my cs in 3 days and not worry at all, just looking forward to see my son.

  • I've never heard of this before. I am having my scheduled c-section January 25. My sister had a scheduled one in April, and everyone I've ever met who has had a scheduled c-section has had a wonderful experience.
