Exactly the opposite. And about the mdc comment - I am wondering where is everyone???? I cannot even believe this topic is going largely undiscussed. Where are the women that have had c-section and are now wondering or hurting? Where are the gentle birth advocates??? Is this topic really that played out? Have we really retreated to our own corners? God, I hope not.
No, I don't think a lot of people have gotten the jist of this thread. Women who have had c-sections are not failures. I don't think I am a failure. I think the medical establishment has failed many women and babies. They keep us selectiveley informed on what our options are...or rather they don't give us any options. There is a lot of de-humanizing going on by the powers that be.
I am perfectly ok with a woman who has chosen an elective c-section who has done her research and come to the decision herself, because that means that she has taken matters into her own hands.
