i've only had emergency c-births but i do know a few mamas who had planned repeats and every one of them found the scheduled one a gentler recovery.
but there are so many factors. i recovered really quickly from my first, and i wonder if it is partly because i did get fully dilated (ds was a preemie and presented kneeling-footling breech) before i was operated on. i was literally up and walking around within 4hrs and took no pain meds at all. wish my second had been so smooth!
mama to callum (april 8,07) and everett (sept 24,09) - blessed to be married to my life's love since '98.
