Re: 10 hours of pushing. Yes, I said pushing. Anyone else go long??
Not all C-sections are awful. I ended up having one after a couple days in labor. It was quick, painless, and I nursed within 30 minutes of delivering. No problems nursing and no problems with the baby. I also had an awesome recovery..was off pain meds in 3 days! No side effects from the epidural, no scar issues or pain at scar site, and no internal scarrage that will interfere with baby #2. (I've had a scan.)
I even hiked wearing my baby at 3 weeks postpartum. Just because you had an awful c-section doesn't mean all of them are that way.
