My very dear friend had a C-Birth on Sunday and it seems to very hard for her. She went natural for 16 hours and then had to have an emergency C-birth. She has said that she just cries and I want to help in supporting her and working thought this and I know it is normal and healthy to morn for the loss of a V-birth but to anyone who has had a C-birth after wanting a V-birth badly what made you feel better? What helped? What did people say to make you feel worse (just so I know what not to say). We were only due 1 day apart and I am still preggo so I want to make sure I dont over do myself and make her feel bad. I know she is having a hard time with them not letting her see her baby after the birth and BF has been hard too. I really want to help and be of suport but I also don't want to make it more painful. Just looking for our thoughts to help my friend. Also we live in different countires so I really can't go help her with anything- it is mostly e-mail and losts of cyber hugs!
