Britney Spears's 'kabbalah water birth' - Page 3

post #41 of 55
umm I wasn't being sarcastic.

And yeah I do want the # to her plastic surgeon. My body is abhorant in *MY* eyes. no amount of fitness training is helping.

For cripes sakes, it's MY body I can bloody well hate it if I want to!

No problems with incontinence here - at least so far - after three c-sections. But, I have almost no sensation in my bladder right now. The only way I know when I have to use the bathroom is that my incision will start to hurt from the pressure. So, I can well believe the surgery and/or the pregnancy itself can cause problems in this area.

And, I've always been a Kegel queen, so no problem there. I discovered them when I was 17, and have done them regularly ever since.

According to People magazine, it's a definite c/s. Brings back memories of Denise Richards who scheduled hers so Charlie could be there. She went into labor a week early and still opted fr the c/s. My tummy may have always been a little fluffy, but my c/s definitely didn't help!

Too bad if she isn't having a water birth--would be a great way to help spread the word about less widespread birthing options!

About the incontinence and vaginal birth issue, I remember reading (I forget where) about a study of incontinence in Catholic nuns (who had never had children). My recollection is that their rate of incontinence was the same as the general population.

what they forget is that the way vaginal birth is done in our culture is creating more pelvic floor problems, not vaginal birth itself. forced pushing, supine positioning, vacuum extractors, forceps, episiotomy, reaming of the tissues, etc.
Nice theory, except that it doesn't hold up to scrutiny. A study of nuns who had never given birth found the same rate of prolapse, bladder problems, etc. as women who had given birth!

ETA: Whoops, see other people made the same point. And the moral of the story - read to the end before posting!

Well Madonna has been intimate with Dennis Rodman, and Denis Rodman's ex wife wrote a tell-all where she describes how she contracted herpes from Mr. Rodman, so I always figured...

That is what I read...Your version is probably truer, as I have read that most celebrity caesareans are from herpes infections...

Well, then the stars should hire midwives. We don't automatically section you for herpes.

I always assumed it was for the complimentary tummy tuck.

Nah, I remember when Madonna gave birth the first time - she labored for a long time before the c/sec. I read an interview where she said that she was so shocked b/c her sisters had had natural childbirth and no problems with delivery, and she was scared to death of a c/sec. Yet after 'x' number of hours of labor, she was begging for one. Second one was for a total previa. Yes, I read too many pages of People magazine from the L&D waiting room when I worked nights .

What I actually heard about Madonna was that she wanted a home birth, and then when she was being rolled into the operating room, she was saying that she was ready for her nose job.
