I guess I just don't understand this.
This post refers in no way to those that have to have emergency c-sections, or c-sections for the health of mother/baby or mothers who could not give birth naturally due to physical limitations.
This pertains to woman who utterly refuse to do it the natural way. I nearly said normal, except c-sections are the new normal. I was reading about women who had c-sections on another site, and the ones who refused to go through labour were very, how should I put it, strange.
There reasoning was no pain from contractions and less stress because with a c-section you know when baby is coming, whereas with natural labour you don't know how long it will take.
Now forgive me if I seem close minded, but pain is going to come whether you have a c-section or not! There is also always a possibility of complications during major surgery.
So help me understand WHY woman feel the need to resort to intrusive surgery rather than going the way our bodies intended?
