Britney Spears had her baby... ELECTIVE C/S

post #1 of 136
Thread Starter 
Britney had her baby boy today by primary elective c/s. Supposedly she didn't want to deal with the pain of a natural childbirth. Like a c/s feels great?!?! I'm willing to bet she had a tummy tuck or something at the same time. What kind of message is she sending to all the little girls that look up to her? (Which in and of itself is unfortunate....)

Yeah...she had one scheduled for the 23rd but I guess went into labor early. I really wish she would have just TRIED to birth him vaginally :

I'm so tired of this trend in elective c/s. Why do people think a c/s is the easy way out????

To be expected I think...

Crashing the forum...

Why do people think that roughly 24 hours of pain (with rests--that's the beauty of the contraction) is somehow SO MUCH WORSE than six weeks of recovery from major abdominal surgery??? It defies logic.

hehe I just came here to post this on the Birth&Beyond forum because we had a big discussion there about it. As soon as I hit post I saw that there was a post in this forum about it too. Now back to lurking here

Namaste, Tara

That is really nauseating, isn't it?

It really makes me sick--I know a mama who is a L&D nurse in Alabama who said that it's not just the rich and famous who are having it done--apparently the powers that be at their hospital have okayed it for any woman, claiming that it's no more risky than a vaginal birth.

It's pretty disturbing to me that vanity and her own distorted views how pain-free the c-sec would be were more important than her son's safety. Despite tearing and major hemi's when each of my daughters were born, I felt WONDERFUL compared to how I felt after my son's birth by c-section. This "too posh to push" mentality is disturbing to say the least.

Didn't her mom tell her that vaginal deliveries are the most excruciating pain ever? If that is the message she has been recieving since she was a child, than I don't blame her, especially if she doesn't have intelligent mommy friends who can show her other viewpoints!

My mother did the same thing to me and after I had my cesarean with my 1st and would talk about how much it hurt, female relatives would say "just be glad you didn't have a natural birth."

It is sad that this is what she chose, but sometimes, a bad decision can be the best thing that happens to a person, right? I know it was for me.

The whole birth scene is disturbing. It has been disturbing since it started becoming common to go to the hospital. Its not all that long ago that they just knocked you out and used forceps. I saw a primary elective c/s on baby story. The woman was all into being stylish before and during pregnancy. I was thinking how stylish my scar is...

Everyone practically is under the impression that its just too painful. My dh co workers said that we wouldn't have another at home after I saw how painful it is. After we had dd the guy asked how it went and dh said that I would never do it any other way. The guy was shocked. Its sad that you are seen as a martyr to have med free birth....

Nice job by her mother, too, putting the fear of God into her about labor.

gee, it's so surprising that the natural birth movement and nfl/ap movements remain such a fringe element. What new mom wouldn't want to join such a warm, supportive, gentle community?


boy is my c&p getting alot of use lately.....

You think this is bad, you should see what they are doing to her at a sports board I frequent that is (probably obviously) 99 percent male.

She is a celebrity. It goes with the territory, especially when you made your pregnancy such a public event.

I so agree with you

Hi

I was wondering if anyone was going to post up on britney having a caesarean. I had one with my last and i really didnt want to have one. I have been through childbirth with my first and although it was the most painful experience i think i will ever go through thats the way babys are intended to come in to the world. I had a c section for a breech baby and now im pregnant again i am hoping for a hvbac. I bet the only reason she had a caesaraen was so she could have a tummy tuck at the same time, i bet all the famous people do. I think she is a very sad person to want to have a caesarean for no medical reason, it sounds to me that she wanted to have a baby but didnt want the pain. Having a caesarean isnt pain free far from it and it takes so much longer to recover. People like her just make me MAD.
