Re: Avoided a c-section, but with mixed feelings

You can't think about what might have been! You planned, you researched, you consulted professionals. When you squeezed your baby out, you cleared his lungs. You reduced his risk of infection and respiratory issues. You increased your risk of bonding and breastfeeding. A c/s would have increased your risk of future infertility, miscarriage, placenta problems, and hemorrhage. They can do a c/s in crazy quick time, that OB was never on your side. If the midwives were ok with it, I would trust their experience. They have a better track record. I'm proud of you for your decision and pray God will give you healing for these doubts that plague you.
