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.
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.
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.
At least they prepared you for when your woman gives birth. That won't seem so bad then.
Family movie night gone wrong!
