 Hi there ladies, just wondering what are some of your thoughts on elective c-sections.  For it, against it, or personal choice?

 Against it. Elective sections put the baby at risk of being born prematurely. Due Dates can be off by two weeks sometimes and a baby born 2 weeks early will have to spend time in the NICU.  Sections are not safe for the mother either. It needs to be compared to Gastric Bypass surgery. You are cutting through layers of muscle and skin, then through a major organ. Sewing all the back up again can lead to risk of hemmorage, internal bleeding and a host of other issues. It isn't worth the risk.

Personal choice. It has more risks, but its not my body. That makes it none of my business.

Against. It is selfish to force a child to be born before it's ready, unless there are compelling medical reasons.

I agree with all of this. Yes it's personal choice but it's a major surgery with risks and should be treated like one.

Quoting FrumpyMama:

I had to have an emergency c-section with my first, so I will choose to have another. Its MY choice and I dont care what anyone else thinks about it.

FOR IT! I elected mine (39 weeks) and 5 years later I still am happy with MY PERSONAL decision.
