Hey, where did this forum come from?

And where was it a few weeks ago when I needed it?

That is awesome!! I've always felt so alienated here with my birth because I had to have a C! Nice to have a place to talk about it.

I agree. I sometimes feel in the cloth diapering community, that I should be expected to have a natural childbirth and go for the VBAC. As much as I would love to, it's just not in the cards for me. I had a c/s with DS, and will have another for this baby. It's really nice to have a place where were can support each other and help each other out when it comes to c/s without being made to feel bad about not having a vaginal birth.

Yes some do make us all feel like we are less of moms and less crunchy because we didn't push them out on our beds or in our bath tubs! I say ewww to both because it's not for me! We actually went back into our family lines and can't find a natural birth in the last 50 years. I knew when I had my first that I would likely have a c/s as that's the pattern my family has been. Not sure why maybe out pelvis is not shaped right or whatever but I love having this forum now!

Well said mama! I feel exactly the same - having a c/s doesn't make me any less crunchy, lol.

Re: Hey, where did this forum come from?

Well I went for a VBAC and lemme tell ya, my genes should not be in the gene pool according to mother nature. Ended in a second emergency c at 37 + 2 and I was at 5 cm and on the brink of rupturing. Eminent death anyone? Yup, that's me. Doesn't matter how crunchy I want to be, it ain't happening via the normal exit route.
Nice to see another forum option here for those of us both voluntary and not so voluntary c mamas.

I was at 4 cm and DID rupture, completely. Got two units of blood the next day (in addition to the three units I'd gotten the previous week from the constant bleeding during pregnancy).

So I guess my c-section would fall under the "not-so-voluntary" category.
