Re: My first c-section - so many questions!

I do not know if this is common or not but I do know it would elevate me anxiety, so I am requesting that not be done. I also am opting for stitches, just don't like the idea of staples. I imagine the scaring would be less with stitches, but that is just a guess. Best of luck!
Wow, having my hands restrained would be scary. My c-section was an emergency, but my hands were not restrained. They had me lay my hands out from my body on a board, but not restrained. DH held one hand.

Labels? I don't use labels. I can't even get my label maker to work.
