C-section is really a safe way of giving birth. The only problem with the matter is the financial trouble that it causes for those who doesn't have enough money and just really needed to undergo the operation because it definitely cost so much from the operation until the recovery. You really need to have enough budget for that though it's really safe specially if you don't have abnormalities with your body like high blood pressure. But at present, a growing number of people, including medical professionals, are coming to resist the idea of “designer births” and non-medically necessary cesarean sections. A group of clinics already prohibited elective c-sections recently, if performed before 39 weeks of pregnancy. A group of public medical centers in Britain is also suspending all medically needless c-sections, refusing to put them on the public tab. I found it here: NHS clinics banning needless cesarean sections.

I figured the purpose of this board was what it was when I had my son: information about the procedure without judgement, recovery, sympathy, etc. Had I read most of your posts when still recovering mentally and physically from my c-section, I would have ended up in tears. If I were trying to make a decision, I would be terrified. Is that your intent? Because it seems like it, and quite frankly, that's not "supportive".
I know you have had c-sections and we all have our own experiences. I understand that your most recent post was a direct response to the ridiculous statement that c-sections are "really safe". But your posts seem to always be heavily biased against c-sections. How does that create a safe haven for c-section moms?
I don't feel it's necessary to blatantly try to frighten people on this board with the intent of scaring them away from a repeat c/s and into a VBAC. If people are interested in VBAC, there is a board for that.
I agree with the PP. I do believe that post was a bit unsupportive. I had a c-section and I am electing to have another one. They are difficult and there are risks but in some cases the benefits out weigh the risks. Without mine, my daughter and I would both be dead. Some people do it for medical reasons and others have their own set of reasons for their choice. I can be costly, yes. It does pose risks. However at the end of the day all that matters is your LO is healthy and here. Even if they do spend some time in the NICU.
VBAC is a beautiful option, but if it is not right for whatever reason then we are here to give support and advice.
Recovery can also be quicker with a second c-section, than with the first because you know what to expect and already know what your body can and cannot handle.
