Just to balance things...
I had an emergency caesarean under G.A.
I haemorrhaged and needed a six pint blood transfusion.
I was unconsious for 24hrs.
I had a secondary haemorrhage at home.
I suffered postnatal depression for a year.
6yrs later I had surgery to divide adhesions which tethered my bowel to my scar, making lovemaking painful.
9yrs later I still have problems bonding with my child.
Caesarean is not the easy option! It is a major surgery which should be reserved for serious problems.
