Vaginal Versus C-Section Birth

Which Method of Delivery Worked For You?

As youngsters, we are led to believe storks drop newborns off in a bundled white sack. At some point in time, wee ones will find out that Santa Claus isn't real and that mama lied about those long necked birds. There are only two ways to enter this world — through the birth canal or slipping through a surgically split belly. In the end, the means of delivery usually doesn't matter to the new mom as long as she's holding her sweet baby in her arms.

All 4 were vaginal births.

After 36 hours of labor and other problems, I ended up with a c-section. 10 pound baby and I'm only 5 foot 4. My new fetus looks just as large so I guess another c-section.

Vaginal worked for me with my first. One doctor is giving signs that I may get a c-section with this pregnancy. She hasn't come out and said it and dances around my questions pertaining to it, but I have a strong feeling that things aren't going to go my way. Hopefully I go into labor on her day off.

I had a c-section after my labor stalled, but I am hoping to have a VBAC next time around. My personal experience with a c-section wasn't great at all!
