According to Cynthia there is no definite answer made. They are still talking about the benefits and the "dangers". I think they are smart for thiking carefully about the new forum. I would love to have it but I'm also wondering about the negative side of it.

KKmama--I've also stopped reading the threads in this forum. Welll, I read my own

As I said initially, it is being reconsidered.

These conflicts will come about periodically whether there's a cesarean sub-forum or not.

Well if we dont get the forum its probably going to be because of me and my big mouth and to all of you, I give my deepest apology. I think we need the forum. I don't think AP or natural mommas should be excluded because we had surgical births.

Going back to lurkdom...

Wow!!! I've been busy for a while, and I missed watever it was that caused the controversy that you're all talking about. Can somebody give me the short version?

Just from reading what you've all been saying though, I have to say that I'm confused and a little bit angry. I know that Mothering has an "anti-c/section" bias, and I've always tried to interpret it as as "pro-natural" birth thing. But, without knowing exactly what's going on, it sounds a little like those of us who have had c/sections and aren't embarrassed or ashamed or humiliated are being treated like people who shouldn't express their opinions for fear of influencing others. I would never counsel anyone who could give birth naturally to have a section, that's just not the way nature intended for it to go. But, likewise, I don't appreciate being made to feel like less of a woman or mother because of the way that I gave birth.

My children are happy and healthy and I not only breastfed, but am still breastfeeding an almost 3 year old. If I had listened only to the things that I have read in Mothering, I don't think that I would even have tried. And that makes me very sad. I wish I could turn to them for the support that they always seem to give everyone else.

Just my opinion.

Hi Cajunmomma-I'm too tired to summarize recent events, sorry. :LOL I'd rather make a fresh start. Here's the link to the new Cesarean support circle thread:
