I agree that most people don't want the forums combined. I totally get that. I have no problem with them being separate forums, which they probably will be.
However, I see all of my birth options holistically. I want a VBAC more than anything, and I see nothing but downsides to having an RCS. I always hate the assumption that because I want to investigate the pros and cons of RCS that I am dismissive of the implications of it. I have not seen ONE WOMAN in any of the threads I have read say ANYTHING about how great a c-section is, or be dismissive of the pain and trauma of it.
The problem is, we are also discussing the birth of our child, and to do so without being able to say something positive is a little sad.
I have the exact opposite problem. All of the women in my social circle, all of whom had home births, look at me like I have the plague when I even MENTION the possibility of a repeat c-section. This is a very real possibility for me, and I am TERRIFIED of it. Thank God there are some mamas who are willing to tell me it might be ok.
