I just don't understand..Aren't we all moms? Why would *some* moms belittle other moms for the way their children came into this world? I just don't get it.
While I don't really condone elective c-sections (though technically I had one), It's that mother's uterus, not yours! (please don't turn that statement into a pro-life,pro-choice debate)
My story: I broke my hip and pelvis when I was 11. I knew early on that the likelihood of having a c-section was high but my doctor was supportive that I wanted to try naturally. At 41 weeks and I still wasn't dilating I agreed to an induction (not my first choice but ds was showing signs of distress). I labored for 15 hours (drug free) for 1 CM and DS still couldn't fit into the birth canal so I agreed to the section.
I still conceived a child, I carried him in my uterus for 9 months, I felt the kicks and movements and I felt the real contractions....Am I less of a mom than you (general you) because I didn't "push"?
MY question is to those that think that c-sections aren't "giving birth"....please explain how I am any less of a mother than you simply for the way my child came into the world?
I mean no disrespect so please don't be overly rude, I just curious.
