I know when/if my son asks about how he was born I will tell him about what *we* went through. Something like: "It was a very hard labor on you and mommy and in the end the people taking care of us felt it was too hard on mommy and him. So mommy had to have a surgery where she couldn't feel anything bad but got to stay awake so that we could all meet you when you were born. As soon as you were out they cleaned you off and mommy got to hold you. Then daddy took you to show our family how handsome you are, and get a check up to see how big you were make sure you were as healthy as we thought. Mommy was so happy you finally arrived."
It's very sugar coated but no lies, it doesn't put on blame on him, and there is no mention of how traumatic it was for me or how angry I was about the birth.
