    I had a c section with my daughter and i would have given anything to have done it naturally/vaginally. I honestly dont know why women chose to have a c section. The lady in the bed opposite me was up and about within hours where as i could barely move-She also got to go home earlier than i did.

    Yes child birth is a scary thought but i dont think people realise the risks involved in c sections.
