    Fantastic story. So glad you shared it, wish more people talked so postively about their experience. It will help to dispel the idea that a caesarean is always a desperate last resort.

    I had an unexpected cesarean after planning a freebirth, and I really identify with what you’ve written here. The cesarean birth was exactly what I needed, and I’m glad all those professionals and all that technology was there when I wanted them. I had no complaints about my experience and no trouble bonding or breastfeeding afterwards.

    Thanks for sharing your experience!

    I had a C-Section also, which was scheduled, per se, but expected and prepared for. I knew from the getgo when it was first brought up that I wouldn’t let it turn into a horror story like so many I had heard both in doing research and from friends’ personal stories. I think it’s important for all women to know that you can have a successful birth even when scalpels are involved. Maybe I just tried harder (if that’s even possible) after the C-Section to bond with my son, but we’re the same way – inseparable (except when I have to work…) and if anything, we’re too close, too attached. C-Sections are rough, but with adequate preparation, emotionally and physically, and adequate healing time, it doesn’t have to be a traumatic or negative experience. Thank you for sharing!

    I agree 100% with you! My daughter was born via an emergency c-section after 48 hours of labor. She ended up with a horrid infection that landed her in the NICU for 4 weeks. When I was pregnant with my second my doctor who I trusted 100% thought it best to schedule a c-section 1 week before my due date. I was prepared, relaxed and ready when the date of my c-section came. He was only away from me for 15-30 minutes or so while I was stitched up and brought to recovery where we were reunited. The bond with my son is amazing and I feel that his birth could not have turned out better.

    I didn’t have a C-Section, but I was so glad to read your story. I really believe that we need less fear around birth – all types of birth – and so often you hear only horror stories about it. Whether it be assisted or natural, birth should be celebrated. Thanks for sharing 🙂
