After a considerable number of requests over this last year we have now introduced a section for c-section Mums and Moms to be.
We hope many find the new support forum helpful on their pregnancy journey and other c-section Mums/Moms are able to help, offer advice and ease any of your concerns as you prepare for the arrival of your little one.
This is so nice! Had a c-section with #1 and will have to with any more due to my small hip size. Love the idea of this forum we're we can all encourage those who have or will need c-sections, so we can remind each other that our births are just as special.
Its nice to see this section. So many woman get worked up and concerned about having a c-section. My little girl decided to enter the world, both early and fast. And breach.
I was 35 weeks and they didn't have a clue she was breach till I was 4cm, they didn't confirm it until I was 8 cm about 15 mins later (with an ultrasound machine)
My section was fantastic! I remember telling them I wanted to push as I was wheeled into theatre - thats how close it was!! The doctors, nurses, surgeons and whoever else was there were amazing.
2.5 years later, my scar is almost completely gone, its barely noticable and the pain was nowhere near as bad as I expected. So much so I think I would very possibly opt for an elective section in future. The main thing is our babies arrive in this world safe and sound; and that we, their mums, are also safe. If that means a section, then fine. At the end of the day, how they get here doesn't matter - it doesn't make your birth any less 'good' 'special' 'important' or anything. It saddens me so much when I hear ladies saying they feel like they failed because they had a section. I just want to reassure that a section can be a really good thing
great to see this had a natural quick labour with my first and a planned section with my second cause she was needing to be delivered due to placenta problems and prem they didnt advise i do it naturally
so yeah good section as i might need another one if we can have more babies x
Only one baby so far for me too and he was born by EMCS. Like previous posters have said, I had a very positive experience of a CSec and would be happy to reassure anyone who is about to have one or has just been through one. My LO is almost 20 months old, and I also have a very faint scar, barely noticeable. I don't feel like I missed out, the outcome was the most important thing - a healthy and beautiful baby.
Looking forward to reading other ladies experiences!

Lovely too see this section. I will have plenty of questions over the next few months as my doctors advised me after my last pregnancy which ended in vacum delivery that i should have a section if i went again. I will see him in 2 weeks time but not sure at what stage of pregnancy they actually discuss these things with you
