A few things I want to say:
1. yes you can ask for a cesarean and get it. LOTS of people do. This is a large part of why iatrogenic prematurity is such a huge, huge, huge problem in the states.
2. In times when a cesarean is medically necessary, most are emergencies... they won't have time or the luxury to make things all flowers and sunshine. It is going to be 99% the "non emergent" cesareans that are capable of being done like this, which means that it's mostly elective and repeats, which are neither medically necessary nor should be encouraged. I think the general idea here is that if you have the option to have a "woman centered cesarean" (what a misleading title!), you probably didn't need a cesarean at all. There will be exceptions, but it'll be pretty rare.
3. Before anyone jumps on me for not knowing what I'm talking about, I'm a cesarean mom and an ICAN co-leader.
Being safe and happy with your birth are paramount, and in the best interest of mother and baby health (as well as bonding, long term side effects, breastfeeding, and a MILLION other reasons) cesareans should not be prettied up imho. They're already popular enough... I think we can all agree the last thing the cesarean industry needs is more excitement on why it's awesome to get one. Cesareans are major abdominal surgery, and carry very serious risks to both mother and baby. I don't know that I think this kind of surgery should be promoted considering the amount of women who would be ideal candidates for it (IE. ones that cannot, cannot, cannot have a vaginal birth and that reason does not mean an increase in medical monitoring or care due to being in a high risk situation) are going to be very few. VERY few.
