I think it's rude to say you've only come across one necessary c-section.
I went into labor 5 weeks early with my dd. They gave me mag sulfate to stop it but I was still in labor despite it. She hadn't yet turned. She was breech. I was dialated to 8 cms naturally before the nurse realized that it was her bum and not her head that was presenting first. 20 minutes later Sophie was born via emergency c-section. It was still as amazing and special as any other birth. I think you shouldn't ever practice with women who've had a c-section. You're so unsupportive and ignorant about it.
Oh and I had a horse that was boarded next door who had to have a c-section as well. It's not like she scheduled that to fit into her or her docs schedule.
Maybe you didn't read all the posts, I don't know. Either way, my heart just shattered at reading this. Also, I have never at any point said or believed that a cecerean bith is any less significant than a vaginal birth. I am a very religious and spiritual person and I don't think that one can get any closer to God on earth than through witnessing a birth, or birthing. This is true regaurdless of the nature of the birth.
I now have much more knowlegde about the circumstances underwhich cecereans do and should occur. I thank you all for helping me out. However, I can't say that I'm not feeling a little timid about discussing the subject again with women who have been through it. I understand as well as I can how sensitive a subject this is, but I am a sensitive person too and I don't appreciate being ridiculed for trying to learn and understand.
Thanks again to everyone who has supported me! Regaurdless of what anyone thinks, I have promised myself and God that I will be an amazing doula. I will not fail to fulfill that promise, its too important to me.
