I'm delighted that here in Germany you can decide which one you want in advance. Most people have planned C Sections.

Its amazing how different countries are soo different and I suppose to some1 in the UK we find it hard to believe that any doc would put that extra risk on mum and baby when there is no reason Do you pay for your health care in Germany?

I'm insured under my husband and it's automatically taken out of his wages. You have to have health insurance here. It's great though because the money is gone before you get your wages and you're so used to it just being taken out you don't miss it. It's also more affordable then in other countries as far as I know.

Thanks for everyone's opinions. I think i will reconsider trying a natural birth when the time comes, and definatley opting for the epidural. Thank you for all your advice, im really glad i asked the question now as i guess what you dont see on One Born Every Minute & birthing programmes is the recovery & afterwards! I also didnt realise that it was a higher risk on mother & baby. Thanks guys

Well, here's my experience.

I had 2 vaginal deliveries. Then I had a surgery just like a section, but no baby, lol. After that surgery I couldn't understand why anyone in their right mind would electively have a section instead of a vagina delivery.

Then, I had my 3rd vaginal delivery and everything changed. It was absolutely horrible, even with the epidural. It took me as long to recover from her birth as it did from my surgery.

You never know. Everyone has an opion and different experiences. Now I feel like I understand both sides of the coin as I'm considering an elective section if I have a fourth child.

Good luck!
