Does it offend you when people say your child's birth was "unnatural"?

I am not a c-section mom but I do not discriminate against women who have had them at all. 

I just wish they would also quit discriminating against women who have had vaginal births and making comments about how their vagina is "saved" like ours isn't, because ours is too. It was made to birth and it goes right back in most cases. C-section moms are just as likely to experience prolapse as vaginal moms. Your vagina did not come out with the upper advantage compared to ours. That is all.

Hmm , no. I labored and pushed 3 times, but 2 of those ended in a c section. No such bullshit as "elective".. I had the terror of hours upon hours of laboring AND a surgery

No. I couldn't care less what others think about my two life saving emergency sections.

Neither me or my DD would be here today if it weren't for my c-section, so if anyone wants to criticize that, they can kiss my butt.

Nope. It doesn't offend me. I did what was best for my health and the safety of my child.

No....it doesn't change the fact that I carried my child, I am their mother, and they are alive and healthy.

What does bother me is when people like my SIL brags about her natural birth and how she's better than me because she gave birth "naturally." And blah blah. She didn't have an epidural, but she was induced at 37 weeks because she was tired of being pregnant, and she did have pain meds....her birth wasn't any more natural than mine......at least I went into labor on my own and labored naturally, and pushed until I was rushed away for an emergency c-section.

Quoting baquick:

Who cares as long as the baby was born? It's not the method that matters. It's the health of the child and of the mother that matters.


Amen!!

No one has ever said that to me.  I'd probably punch them in the face and say, "so's this!"
