Are wealthy women too posh to push? A new British study shows that upper-class women are more likely to get elective C-sections, raising new questions about who get the surgery -- and why.

I haven't read the article yet but I find it strange. Having a child and actually delivering them isn't something that is supposed to be planned and mapped out due to convenience and ease. I understand circumstances occur but we are talking elective. IMO there is to much doctor intervention as is, I sure as heck wouldn't allow them to do a c-section on me just bc. I don't think it would be offerend to me

I think it's fine especially for people who have had previous problems giving birth naturally.

Also I think the csection should be done at least 38 or 39 wks preferably so the lungs have time to develope and not earlier than that.
