Even though you delivered by c-section, did you still "feel" like you gave birth (which you obviously did), or did the surgical aspect disconnect you from the experience?

Do you have a choice of another hospital for your subsequent children? I was moving before I got pregnant with #2, so I actually researched and handpicked the practice and hospital I wanted to deliver at.

We do have another hospital in town. Any other hospital would be a minimum 1 hr drive to another town. This other hospital is the "nicer" one since it is private. I know the l&d nurses tend to be vbac friendly, which is important. I'm planning on being a big ol pain in the butt next time around. I'll have a written list of what I want for myself, as well as a seperate list of what I want for my baby, which I will be hounding the nurses and drs with. Also, I will be asking specifically which pedi is available while I'm there to ensure I don't end up with the same one. Our town is small and its not uncommon for drs to work both hospitals, so I want to be sure we don't get stuck with her again.
