Reply This is quite beautiful. (Also: looks like baby's first thought is, "Come on dude – what's up with the light in my face?") 6 agree Reply I never got to see my son being born, what with the surgical drapes and all. I have just stared at this picture for over thirty minutes, pretending this is what happened. It's still a magical feeling, no matter what end the baby comes out (unless he comes out the top end. I'd worry about that) 8 agree Reply I felt this way too: my baby – this could be my baby. I need to get back to writing up my story, and continue healing. 1 agrees Reply I am so glad you posted this. I sometimes get a little miffed about all the stories on here about "oh bummer I had to have a c-section in the end, but I really wanted a vaginal delivery!" A C-section saved my life and my daughter's and every day I give thanks for that epidural and for the fact that I had great medical care, even if it was the "unnatural" and intrusive kind. My daughter and I are fine and that's all that matters in the end. You can bet next time I give birth I'll ASK for a C-section and an epidural all over again. Everyone told me it was going to be soooo painful. I was up the next day taking a shower, and I'd much rather have a small scar on my bikini line than my vagina torn open. I am not advocating one labor method or another, I am just pointing out that a C- section is NOT the enemy as some people make it out to be. It won't prevent you from breastfeeding, bonding with your baby etc… Reply Cool! Reply "I'd much rather have a small scar on my bikini line than my vagina torn open." Trish I'm with you 110% on this! I've had abdominal surgery before (appendix), so perhaps that's why I lean toward the C-section; I just can't fathom pushing something the size of a watermelon out something the size of a lemon without thinking "OUCH! Is there another option???" 🙂 Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
