No matter how hard I fight, push and try I cannot seem to find an OB willing to allow me to try for a VBAC *back story-when I was 16 my boyfriend (now husband) and I were in a bad car accident and I crushed my pelvis. Fast forward to 22 when I had my son and after 21 hours of active labor, they opted for a c section and took me, kicking and screaming, to the OR. Because I had not used any pain meds they put my under general anesthesia. My son was born at 11:11 on a wednsday morning, I don't remember anything clearly until 4 or 5 thursday afternoon when the nurse was trying to give me another shot of pain meds (I didn't ask for) and I asked her not to and that I wanted my son. My husband, God bless him, had actually held my son to my chest and let him nurse that way. (We didn;t want to use formula so at least they did that much).*
I remember nothing of my son's first day of life and have no pictures of him (besides a few from family member's cell phones) for like the first week of his life.
So, this time I am using a spinal and really want a birth photographer. I know most of the time that they are used during natural births so I'm not sure if I could even find one willing to take photos of a boring c-section birth. The hospital we are birthing at this time seems to be more lax and has approved photography during a Cesarean before so that is not the issue...
It's more...should I? What are your thoughts of birth photography in general? How would a c-sec look in pictures anyway?
(no negativity please!)
