I agree. I do not understand what you mean by this statement.
Your wife should know that a caesarean can be a life saving, wonderful procedure in an emergency or problem delivery. But having a surgical delivery will pre-determine the outcome of future deliveries as well as problems with a bruised bladder, adhesions, scar tissue, life long back problems from incompetently done epidurals, delay of breastfeeding, infections, any future abdominal problem and prolonged recovery.
Future deliveries can be complicated by placenta previa and placenta accreta. Babies born this way often need to be suctioned and some hospitals send routinely them to the NICU for observation.
Natural childbirth is painful and gruesome, but as a mother myself who endured it more than once, it is worth it.
And some advice - get your records from the hospital. These are always an eye opener.
