I saw a thread on the Labor & Birth board from about a month ago where someone said they had chosen to have an elective c-section, but refused to share their reasons. That made me think of an interesting topic for discussion here.

Did you choose to have a c-section or repeat c-section? Why?

When did you make this decision- before your pregnancy, in the middle, or very close to the end? What factors influenced the timing of your decision?

How did you feel about sharing your decision with others? Did you have to deal with people who disagreed with your decision? How did you approach it with them?

I think I'll post a topic next week about people who chose to seek a vaginal birth after a c-section.

I requested a c-section with my 2nd child, and my Dr. wholeheartedly agreed from the get-go.

Thanks for sharing!! Sometimes I feel like a loner for my choices. It's good to know someone else who understands why you would make a decision like that.

Really sorry about how your first experience went though!!
