I hope my response does not offend anyone, and this opinion is specifically for elective C-sections- they should be outlawed. Doctors who push them for easy scheduling or insurance/ money purposes should have their licenses taken away, and women who do not want to give birth to a baby should not have a baby. It is in my opinion that our bodies were made to have children, and unless there is a medical emergency there is no reason to interfere. My mother's first child was a breech vaginal birth, and my stepsister delivered a 12 pound baby vaginally- these days a doctor would have pushed a C-section on both of them. Somehow they were just fine.
