Support for unwanted c section

So one of my EC buddies and I have found ourselves both in the situation of being in the final weeks of pregnancy and having to face c-sections which are not the way we wanted to go. For medical reasons each of us is unable to deliver vaginally, which was our first choice.
While I know some people here choose c sections voluntarily, I figure we can't be the only ones who have found ourselves at the 11th hour drastically re-writing our birth plans with a sense of grief or regret. What would those of you who have been in this boat reccommend? What advice do you have for getting over the disappointment and refocusing on the positives of the situation? I don't want to go into this process still feeling crushed. What choices do we still have about how our deliveries go? It feels like all decisions have been suddenly ripped out of my hands- what can I still determine for myself?
I guess in a nutshell what I want is tips for turning this into a positive experience. Tell me how you changed your outlook.
