Well, it sounds as though you probably won't have to have a c-section. I think you should do as much research as you can, as I've heard there are now hospitals where even an open lesion is not a definite c-section (there are some new techniques for doing vaginal births when open lesions are present).
But, if you think it's a possibility, all I can say is to just learn what is involved in a c-section, what type of anaesthesia you'll have (spinal vs epidural), what the hospital policies are regarding how soon you can hold baby, whether you get a "bonding session" immediately after the birth, a chance to let baby latch on, whether you can room in, have baby sleep with you, etc. When you know what to expect it you'll be prepared and it should be okay.
