Dear Mr. Dad,
It seems that every one of my wife's friends have had c-section deliveries. She's about a month away from her due date and we're both worried that she's going to have a c-section too. The childbirth preparation class we took didn't spend a lot of time on c-sections. In case it happens, what can I expect and what can I do to stay involved?

Hannah's Birth

When my midwife said it could be this weekend or three weeks, I figured three weeks. All along I had pretty much counted on being late (first baby and all). Friday night I couldn't sleep. My cramps were hurting really bad. I got up at 6:00 a.m., thinking "I can't handle this for two more weeks!" As I was talking to my friend, I felt this pop and all this water came out! My water broke!
