This poll is inspired by the previous thread about how your children were born.  Lots of moms have had the experience of both a c-section and a vaginal birth.  So, if you've had a c-section with any of your children, please vote yes.

You can vote for as many answers that apply to you on the other thread.  You could check the box that says 1 vaginal birth and also one that says you've has 2 c/s.

 

I guess I don't understand how the other poll is skewing the numbers.

Nope, all mine were natural and vaginal.

Yes, 1 pregnancy, 1 c-section.

The other poll isn't skewing numbers but it asks about births not moms.  So if a mom has had 1 vaginal and 1 c, she's voting for 2 births.  But, we don't know from the way the poll is worded how many people are actually included in the poll so if I had 6 vaginal births and one c-section I'd vote in the other poll 2x, once for 6 vaginal and then once for 1 c-section.  That counts my births (7) rather than the number of moms (1). 

 

I thought the other poll made a lot of sense.  This one just asks a different question.

I had one with DD, and am trying for a VBAC this time. Hoping with all my might to avoid another c-section.

I guess we are still showing the number of c/s out of births which isn't asking how many women have had them but that there are a large number or sections, repeat or not, that are important vis-a-vis a c/s forum.

5 vaginal births, 1 emergency c/s (baby #6). c/s was for baby turning transverse in active labor with cord presenting, not really a good way out of that one. :)

1 induced vaginal birth- water broke, nothing happened, then induced- and one emergency c-section- water broke, nothing happened, then induced, baby was too big, later found out his cord was wrapped around his neck so tight that if he had come out vaginally, he would not have made it.

Yes,1c/s.
