ive heard a lot on cafemom about people who actually "opt" to get cesareans for no medical reason at all. i have a hard time believing this, considering cesareans are a lot more risky for both mom & baby & require more "work" by the doctor. i find it hard to believe a doctor will go along with this also? ive heard of one in person of a girl who was just too scared to have a vaginal delivery and asked for a c-section. now i don't know her personally, she is a friend of a friend, so i can't say if it's true or not.
im not being judgmental, honestly. im just curious if those of you have had a cesarean for no medical reason? a "just because" cesarean?

Believe it. Many want it, and many Doctors will do it if it's close to their due date or after.

It doesn't happen in Britain where my babies were born. Doctors will not perform unnecessary medical procedures.
