I would, I wouldn't make it and neither would the baby!
Thousands of years ago I know that women did everything the natural way and some died having children.
Now with medical procedures, women like me don't have to die trying!
So WHY is it that some women are so hostile about others who need c-sections? Obviously most of us didn't choose to have them in the first place!
I'm having my third and get bashed all the time! The first was an emergency where we almost died and my second was stillborn. If you weren't in those situations then how dare you judge me.
So is there anyone else out there that really has no other options???

There is a certain amount of pressure being put out there, i think there is an assumption that women are electing c-sections for the convenience of not having to go through labor and/or having to deal with incontinence later in life. I am diabetic and my doctor will be performing a c-section tomorrow (two weeks before my due date) I was conflicted about it, because of all the comments around me by my friends who did it naturally and tend to support only natural birth, but i believe that the risk of something going wrong while diabetic is higher than the risks of a c-section. Labor can send the body in to great distress, my sugar could go up or down and i might risk losing the baby before delivery, meaning still birth.
