Hi there. My baby boy is 14 days old today. I had an unplanned cesarean after naturally laboring and find myself thinking about that day often. I'm not sure why anyone would voluntarily elect for such a painful and complicated surgery - I'm still recovering from mine and have been asked many times since I've already had one would I schedule another if we have more kids. The answer is "hell no!" This is pain I wouldn't wish upon anyone and it robbed me of some of my baby's firsts since I was confined to a bed for days after the surgery.
