I actually felt very cheated that I didn't get that experience with my second son. I was robbed of being able to hold my new baby immediately because I was still being closed up and then I had to go to recovery for an hour. I didn't see my child for at least 2 hours after he was born. That was so sad to me. I was breastfeeding my first son within 15-20 minutes of giving birth to him. That experience was much nicer.

However, I had no choice, I had an emergency situation and I did what was best for my last son but for the next one I will do anything to avoid giving up the experience of pushing him out or those first few early moments together.
i totaly agree with my son he was on my tummy right away . with my sections i didnt see my babys right away i missed that .i was to groggy to hold them .

I don't know about a C-section as I've heard the recovery period is longer. However, I do want to get an epidural. I was in labor for two days with my first baby and finally got an epidural in towards the end. I wish I had done it sooner! I won't wait so long this time.

I am not too posh too push but I am very scared to push! So I wouldn't get any medals either way lol. I don't think we can choose a c-section with the NHS can we? My MW certainly didn't mention it. All she said was that since I am having twins I will be induced at 37 weeks. I am thinking the twins will therefore be somewhat smaller than a full term single baby and the chances of ripping things down there will be smaller? The horror stories I have heard!

I definitely wouldn't want to put myself through a c-section if i was given the choice. Im not sure why anyone would choose to have major surgery!! Aren't the risks statistically a lot higher with a c-section? Hmmmmm..

I have never heard of it referred to as major surgery. It is not like a bypass after all. My friend who recently had her second by c section (first one cause she had to, second she chose) said that she hardly felt the pain even when the epidural faded and she was on her feet later that same day. As for risks, I thought it would be less risk for the baby especially as there is no chance for the baby to get stuck and into trouble etc

C-section is classed as major surgery.

How frightening! My dad had an 8fold bypass a few years ago and somehow I never really thought that a c section would be on par. I tell you ladies, giving birth is a frightening business! And I am firmly closing my imagination to pictures (not that I ever saw that, dear god!) of another friend who had major stitches on her hoo-ha when giving birth to her first tore into her anus! :S
