Forced? I don't know how old you are but it shouldn't matter. You should have got up and left, it's not like they tied you to a chair and held you at gun point... Right? I don't see the fml in this

You can choose to have a C-section (an elective C-section) but from what I've heard, recovery is much longer and more painful than from natural childbirth. My aunt had an elective C-section with her first child, but had a natural birth with her second. She says that with her 2nd child, she was up and moving around within hours, but was bed bound for a week after her C-section. It may differ from woman to woman, though.

If a baby is breech, a c section is needed. Not exactly an emergency. And my second baby was delivered caesarean. I recovered a LOT faster than with my first who was born vaginally. It all depends on the woman and how well the birth went.

76 - Not everyone's c-section recoveries are the same. I had one with my first baby, and was in excruciating pain afterward, even with the pain medication. And no, breech presentation does not make a cesarean necessary; breech (such as frank breech, or buttocks first) is a variation of normal and was once performed quite commonly, before insurance companies decided they didn't want to deal with the "risks" posed by them and they prohibited their covered physicians from performing them in many cases, leading to more and more c-sections done, despite definite risks from that procedure. 89 - I had a vaginal birth with my second, and my husband and I both agree that the sex is better now than it ever was before. That line about getting "stretched out down there" is so old.

4- I agree with you, it is a natural and wonderful experience....or so I've been told, as both my boys were c-sections. Hoping the third one's the charm! :D I have watched a few videos, and I'm glad I did though, you can never have intel! ;)

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It means something different to everyone. I can see how women view it as beautiful (the whole miracle of life thing). I asked for a mirror for the birth of my first child. I wish I hadn't. So yeah, seeing a baby come out of a vagina isn't what I'd call beautiful. But the miracle of bringing a child into this world is.

Oh, no, I would not want to watch myself giving birth as it happened. That's like watching the doctor stick the needle in your arm, but I bet it's a whole lot worse.

I'm a really curious person. And it is like watching a needle prick ya as in it is not pleasant to watch. I don't look when I get pricked so I had no idea what I was thinking asking for a mirror. Must have been the pain meds talking.

Kidney stones can be more painful and last longer. Believe it or not there are more painful things out there than child birth. I'd also say a kick to the balls is more painful if a testicle gets ruptured. Which is very possible.
