ONE BORN EVERY MINUTE is making me feel better about my repeat C Section!!!

i watched last nights and last weeks episodes last night and was a little excited about not having to go through that!. My biggest regret is not having that vaginal birth experience where they pull out the baby after you have worked so hard and lay the baby on your bare chest, etc. etc. C Sections are so boring, uneventful and unemotional! BUT last night i said so many times..."so glad i dont have to do THAT!!!" and "I dont have to worry about THAT happening!!!" Im not knocking vaginal births by any means!!! Im just trying to get myself excited about a repeat CS and last night really helped!!!

I haven't seen that show (I am glad for you to feel better of course) but geez that show sounds really lame, hyping up interventions and discouraging safer-natural routes.

:-(

lol There definitely perks to C sections that vaginal births don't have. I wouldn't suggest c sections just for fun but they are a lot less messy and sweaty! 8) LOL

I dont like the C section rate, but its what they are taught, so I dont blame the nurse staff.

actually you will be happy to know that i see them as being more of an advocate. One nurse was strongly trying to remind one mom that she didnt want drugs and encouraged her to labor on her hands and knees and even let her get up and into a shower after her water broke AND she had an IV! which most hospitals wont let you get up at all!!! It really depends on the nurse they feature that night but that is with any hospital. I really wish i could go vaginal but its just too dangerous for my baby girl. :(

I agree to that one nurse did say that. The other nurse told the woman that had the birth plan that she was so close to delivering that she may not want to get the epidural because it was not in her plan. But the mom said she wanted to get one. So the nurse said okay.

Ahh!
It would be great to have a nice balance...
I TOTALLY understand editing and sponsored programming and the need to dramatize, but with this subject in particular I am very concerned that women are seeing interventions normalized.     :-(

Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.

Last nights wasn't too bad! It was just kinda scary because one of the mothers had the baby stuck in the birth canal and all the nurses and the midwife were trying to get baby out and they were on the bed and it was just crazy! Even one of the nurses mentioned to mom that she made them all work on that one!! But overall, everyone stuck to their birth plans I think and and the nurses/midwife were respectful of that.
