Laura, I agree, a good friend is having a scheduled c-section tomorrow, because the baby is "too big", whatever, she isn't a small woman, this is her first baby, she isn't even trying a trial labor. What worries me, is how many health care professionals are telling women they can't trust their bodies.
Anther friend had a scheduled c-section last week (for medical reasons they didn't even want her to go into labor, but didn't do the section until she passed 39 weeks) and the baby spent 5 days in the NICU for problems. It just makes me so sad, some women need this and then have to deal with the problems, and other feel it's just so convient, so what about the risks.
