the thing about my first births, though...is that it led me to become more educated about birth. w/ my first son, i thought i read all that i needed to about becoming a mother but for some reason, no one really told me to read about birth...and i guess i was a bit too dense to figure that out for myself. hence, my first c/s, in a small town hospital. same thing the 2nd birth, except in a very prestigious big city hospital. 3d time around it clicked and i started researching. i would have never had my vba2cs with ds3 and my hba2cs w/ ds4 if i hadnt had my dreadful c/s's with sons 1&2. it took my horrible hospital births to open my eyes to the simplicity, beauty and absolute bliss of my home birth (though my home birth was 18 years after my first c/s).
