Birth of a baby is nothing less than a beautiful miracle that almost all parents wait for in exhilaration and sweet anticipation though majority keep their fingers cross praying that everything goes well during the delivery of the baby.

I too wanted to go in for VBAC but my gynaecologist didn't allow me to even think about it stating possible dangers I might have to go through if I plan to opt for it. Gaurima going through ur blog , I believe it's not that bad, as is projected .thanks for sharing this informative blog, I am sure it's going to help many pregnant women in taking a call.

I think breing women and bringing a new life through u is a big time achievemwnt than how u deliver it. I really dont understand why most women think that natural birth us a big time achievenent. If so then I feel C section mothers as if has not done justice as being girl. Remember both d deliveries share common thing that is keeping baby safe in there womb n doing best n every bit of ur life to keep it safe. So how cum one day of vagina delivery is an achievement?? In case of normal delivery women suffers pain for 1 or 2 days but a c section mother can some times take entire life recoveryg from section n its side effects. THEN HOW CAN U STILL SAY UR ONE DAY PAIN IS A BIG TIME ACHIEVEMENT??? And other thing I really dont feel that its love at first site seeing baby. What as a mother I have felt is... love kees on growing every day and with every breath ... Bond between u n baby gets stronger n stronger... When my baby came in my arms no doubt I was very happy but the feeling that I am actually her mother took me time to realise... As I think first responsibility came in n then eventually love grew up.. May be I am slow to accept change . But to conclude ....bringing a life through ur body is biggest achievement then the mode of it.

hey Payal .. Nice to know your view ... and lot of moms feel happy choosing either alternative but the idea is to choose with information and there should be no guilt for what so ever. Rest you took the talk from choice of birthing to morning adulation to cancer to super market and you certainly made me smile :) I would just say that you have the very right to think that way so have all.

Here is an excerpt from it I am a mother, and believe me, when I was pregnant, I did not think of whether I would love my baby or not. I did not think what kind of money my doctor would get. I did not think what is natural and what is organic. I did not think of the pain I would have to go through to give birth normally, or the post operative care in I had a surgery. The only thought in my mind was, I want a healthy baby. I want my baby out the safest way available to human kind today. Yes many things are natural. Its perfectly natural to go out in the fields for your morning ablutions, but you dont, do you? Its perfectly natural to live out your life and not go to a doctor, let cancer have its way with your body, chemotherapy is after all not natural. Its natural to hunt for food and gather wild berries, supermarkets are not natural. I did extensive research before deciding. I heard out stories of friends and relatives. I googled and went to libraries. It took me 6 months to finally decide. I will not tell anyone to not go the natural way... but I will definitely say this- I took an informed decision to have Cesarean and I have not had any problem till date about it. And I have never felt guilty for being too posh to push.

yup .. it's great to know about your positive experiences :) but I had a fair trial for natural birth and had undergone 17 hours of labour already before the c-sec. Moreover so it became an emergency c-sec and the dosage of anaesthesia and its administration also made the difference. And a lot depends on the mother's awareness vis-a-vis birthing procedures, hospital standard practices and procedures.

I had two c secs and despite the epidural which wore off in a couple of hours. I was awake, alert and held my babies before the umbilical cord was cut. I breast fed them immediately and then on demand as they roomed withe and not in a nursery. My recovery post both c secs was fast, pain free and comfortable!!! Also no back pSin I can blame on my c secs. I think there r enough stories doing the rounds of the pitfalls of a c sec but I had two very positive experiences.
