Re: Trying to Make Peace with 1st C-section in 4 Days :(

Mama I will pray that toooo! It will be okay. I was a medical interpreter for 10 years and witnessed bunches of births, including c-sections, and most of those mamas did great afterwards. Sore but not the stuff of nightmares one would think. And nurses give EXTRA attention to c-section mamas to make sure their pain is controlled and that they are doing what's needed to speed recovery. AND..she might flip! But if she doesn't, just think about the risk you are avoiding. Sometimes we get so caught up in our own idea of a beautiful birth that we forget that 150 years ago there were many babies lost during birth and sometimes mamas too. Living now gives you a choice you wouldn't have had then. And what will matter is the relationship you will have with little Violet; she won't care how it got started
