Shocking. The amount of ignorance surrounding childbirth on here, a mom's website!! A woman has a right to feel supported and comfortable while giving birth. It doesn't make you selfish for having negative feelings about a past birth experience or for having the desire to avoid a cesarean.

If you had one or many c-sections and feel just fine about that, great. Good for you, really. But that doesn't take away the validity of any other woman's feelings of negativity towards having a c-section. Not wanting an unnecessary major abdominal surgery doesn't make you immature, selfish or stupid.

Most c-sections performed in the US are probably not medically required. MOST I said, obviously some are done to save lives and we are all grateful to live in a time and place where life saving care is available. Drs like to schedule c-sections and inductions because they are easy and convenient for doctors and for hospitals, NOT because they are always medically the best option for women and their babies. Do some reading, ladies. You might learn something! Rant over.

Less than 1% of attempted vbacs result in uterine rupture. Unless a pregnancy is high risk, vbac is safer than a repeat c-section.

It's ironic that you say in your OP that we shouldn't judge someone for how they give birth and then you say this. Maybe you should take your own advice.

Where did this statement pass judgement? If a woman has a healthy pregnancy, knows the risks, and chooses a c-section anyway she should be supported. That doesn't change the facts though.

I don't really give a shit how someone else has their baby. I'm only concerned with how I had my babies.

Good for you. That makes you a better person than 90% of those who responded to the post about not wanting more kids if she has a repeat cesarean.

Because you seem to have the attitude that it's not ok to judge someone for not wanting a c-section but it is ok to judge someone for not wanting a vbac.

My OB clinic is highly against C sections. A "friend" was seeing the same OB as I was and she had to find a new one because he refuse to do an elective C section she was pushing for.
