NEXT Ten minutes and you're finished: a video of a Cesarean delivery Toggle comments [ 8 ] Thank you. 1 agrees Wow. 0 agree This is quite beautiful. (Also: looks like baby's first thought is, "Come on dude – what's up with the light in my face?") 6 agree I never got to see my son being born, what with the surgical drapes and all. I have just stared at this picture for over thirty minutes, pretending this is what happened. It's still a magical feeling, no matter what end the baby comes out (unless he comes out the top end. I'd worry about that) 8 agree I felt this way too: my baby – this could be my baby. I need to get back to writing up my story, and continue healing. 1 agrees I am so glad you posted this. I sometimes get a little miffed about all the stories on here about "oh bummer I had to have a c-section in the end, but I really wanted a vaginal delivery!" A C-section saved my life and my daughter's and every day I give thanks for that epidural and for the fact that I had great medical care, even if it was the "unnatural" and intrusive kind. My daughter and I are fine and that's all that matters in the end. You can bet next time I give birth I'll ASK for a C-section and an epidural all over again. Everyone told me it was going to be soooo painful. I was up the next day taking a shower, and I'd much rather have a small scar on my bikini line than my vagina torn open. I am not advocating one labor method or another, I am just pointing out that a C- section is NOT the enemy as some people make it out to be. It won't prevent you from breastfeeding, bonding with your baby etc… 8 agree Cool! 0 agree "I'd much rather have a small scar on my bikini line than my vagina torn open." Trish I'm with you 110% on this! I've had abdominal surgery before (appendix), so perhaps that's why I lean toward the C-section; I just can't fathom pushing something the size of a watermelon out something the size of a lemon without thinking "OUCH! Is there another option???" 0 agree Comments are closed.
