And ndunn, there are people who oppose all c/s. There is a lot of fear mongering and mistruths about c/s floating around on here.

I want to say for the record that I am not against c-sections. I do think they are overused, and I do believe that for many women c-seections are overperformed, but I don't blame women for that. There are definitely reasons for c-sections, no doubt, but 30% of all women don't need to be having them. I think there is a large proportion fo those women who have been mishandled by their doctors/care providers into thinking that a section was absolutely necessary for their and baby's safety.
A breech is a good example, most breeches these days are sections because of the simple fact that it is risky to delivery a breech vaginally, especially for a first time mom. But it also has a lot to do with liability on the doctors and the simple fact that breech delivery is no longer taught in medical/midwifery schools.
There are so many variables to every situation, and obviously you can't say what is right or wrong for any woman, but it has been proven that c-sections as a whole are more risky than vaginal birth. Doctors do make mistakes with c-sections. Working as a doula I have seen my fare share of very serious complications from c-sections, such as the doctor cutting to deep and actually cutting baby, infection, hemorrhage, etc.
I am very happy that in an emergency a c-section could potentially save my baby's life, but it is not a guarantee, like with anything else. Okay flame away!
