pamered_mom~ thanks, I needed that.
desultory~ I am glad you got to labor with your babies too, and be an active part of their births. And you are right, people can say terrible things about any woman's birth. We need to support one another.

I remember the first thing the nurse in recovery said to me was, "just think, next time you can just schedule when to have your baby." That was before I knew better, and I said, "I have to do this again?" And she said, " well, you don't HAVE to, but good luck finding a doctor that will do it any other way." Don't challenge me lady.

I told my sister after my c/s that I didn't give birth, I had a baby surgically removed from my abdomen. And there is a BIG difference, physically and emotionally. And there are a lot of c/s people that don't mind the difference, but to me, it meant so much.

When my closest friend found out that I was going for a VBAC, she said, "Are you sure? Natural birth is not all that great."
Well, even with tearing, hemhroids, and all, PUSHING that baby out WAS all that great!
