Re: Trying to Make Peace with 1st C-section in 4 Days :(
I had a natural birth and then a c-section. my daughter was breech but we didn't know until after i labored at home most of the day. 8 cm dilated and then an emergency c-section. i was scared but it went really well. they do push you to get up and walk around afterwards. i was able to nurse within 30 minutes, i guess. not really sure. it was pretty quick.
but emotionally, it threw me for a loop. i lost faith in my body's ability to have children. compared to the natural birth which left me empowered and confident.
with time, you will be able to accept it. things happen that we can't control. the end result is what matters - you will have a beautiful, healthy baby to love. he/she doesn't care how she got here. she just wants to be in your arms.
good luck with your decisions and your delivery.
