Hi, I'm new here~
I had two unwanted cesareans, I feel badly for your friend. I tried to make the experiences as much of a happy birthing experience as I could. DH was there with me, I held the babies immedietly after their birth, DH was offered to cut the cord, I nursed them very soon after as well.
I hope you friend can make this a happy experience.
What I remember quite happily is nursing DS and holding him skin to skin in the recovery room as soon as I was able to...
