C-Section is a "Violent Birth"?!

I saw this posted on another forum by someone, and I was just appalled.

The poster made the comment that they felt bad for this particular baby for being born in "such a violent way".

The c-section she was referring to was not her own and was a planned c-section because the mom had already had 3 previous ones.

I understand in emergency situations they very well could be traumatic and intense for all involved.

But, for ME, my c-section was by far the most calm and peaceful birth I've had.

Ha! My section was so much more calm than my vaginal delivery, lol. There was no rushing around. No panicking. No driving through red lights to get to the hospital. ;)

Yes, my section was planned, but she was breech from 30+ weeks, never turning. Violent would have been trying to deliver her vaginally.

No, that is not how I would characterize it.
