Thank you so much for posting this. I gave birth to my son naturally in September but he had already passed before I gave birth so his size wasn't too much of an issue. He was 9 pounds 10 ounces with very broad shoulders and a big head. I loved giving birth naturally so when my doctor told me that we would probably be opting for a c-section before 38 weeks I was disappointed. I have always thought of c-sections to be cold and clinical. This video made me feel better and I am for sure going to ask my doctors to watch this when I get pregnant again. Thank you again...really enjoyed watching this.
I am glad that you enjoyed this video. I am sorry about your losses but seeing your signature made me smile. "which has been your delight". You are so right!!!
I had to have a c-section because my doctors wouldn't try a breech vaginal birth. Mine was a very cold experience. I saw this link on a doula's (who I didn't get the pleasure of hiring) facebook. I watched it and became envious immediately!
With my daughter they lowered the screen so that I could see her being lifted out. You have no idea how that one tiny little thing made things so much easier. I didn't see any gore (the way you are lying makes it difficult to see it anyway), just a baby being lifted from what only could be, my belly.
She was cleaned, checked over and haded to daddy who snuggled her into my neck. It was awesome.
I can't watch it as I still have some major issues regarding my section, but I hope I can achieve a more natural section next time. Most importantly I want my arms "free" so I can hold my child and allow her to attempt to feed herself instead of by syringe.
Thankyou for sharing
Thankyou for this, despite having 3 previous sections I have been asked to write a birth plan for the first time with this one and this video has given me some idea of what I would ideally like to happen. Not sure if the NHS will agree tho! xx
