The holier than thou attitude w/in much of the "natural" community drives me crazy. I was educated about avoiding a c/b, but due to a lot of circumstances outside of my control (and some w/in my control, admittedly), it happened. What I don't need is people pointing fingers at me and saying how awful I am for "letting" it happen.

It's hard to represent peoples fears. Women have had to fight to so hard to have a natural childbirth that anything feels like something is being taken from them. 10 weeks ago, I was one of those women. But fate hands down some pretty cruel jokes...I thought I was ready to breath through any thing. And now I'm on the other side having had a totally medical experience.. The problem it's an emotional issue that every thinks they have a rational aswear to. If only we could all walk a mile in eachothers contrations
I live in Seattle and the cover story this week of our local indie paper is about a home birth that went wrong. I read it hoping it wouldn't be centsationalized, but it was (http://www.seattleweekly.com/feature..._midwifery.php)

I was always told "don't lift anything heavier than the baby for at least 2 weeks".

I was told not to lift anything heavier than Meg (25 pounds)! I did lift Meg like four days after the surgery!!!

I just started visiting this forum yesterday and now that I've been skimming some of the posts, I must admit I've become very disheartened but what I'm reading. My beautiful son was delivered c-section because of a breech presentaion. Reading posts about "good outcomes... ie, not c/s" and posts about when c/s is acceptable really have left me a little angry. I have no regrets about my c/s and hate being made to feel like I was uneducated about my choices or should be ashamed because I had a c/s when other moms didn't.
I really hope we can keep this thread alive so other mom's don't visit here and get discouraged that they might not "fit in."
