Interestingly it is from an OB's perspective, a well informed and compassionate OB. <a href="http://www.eheart.com/cesarean/oliver.html" target="_blank">http://www.eheart.com/cesarean/oliver.html</a><br>
If only we had all had such gentle cesearean births.

Thanks for the response, I see lots of people have looked at the OP but no one had responded yet. I thought the article was pretty insightful. Would love to hear what other thought.

Sounds a helluva lot better than my c-section, although honestly I'm not sure I'd ever feel a c-section is a humane way to birth (speaking for myself.) Thanks for posting it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Though I am still af firm believer in VBAC, it's nice to know that there are "gentler" cesarean options when it doesn't work out or when VBAC just isn't possible.

I agree that a vaginal birth is almost always the ideal, before or after a csect. But I know that in some instances a csect is the best thing for mom and baby(certainly not as often as the medical model would have us believe). Wouldn't it be nice if in those situations where a sect was necessary there were doctors like this to perform the surgery.

Beautiful! He sounds so respectful and wise!<br><br>
My daughter was born by cesarean. My midwife's husband was the OB. He was great - the whole team was! It was not an emergency, so there was room to be flexible. We waited until I was ready. We had my MW, husband, and sister there to support me and my baby. They found a CD player so that I could listen to my favorite music. They rubbed me down with my favorite aromotherapy oils. They were so quiet and kind and respectful. Though it was not the birth I had planned, it was beautiful!<br><br>
My son was born by VBAC 3.5 years later. That was really hard, but great. I imagine if I had another, I would choose a VBAC (but I'm honestly not certain). But, if I was faced with a cesarean again, I would insist on a beautiful birth again!
