C section VS Vaginal Delivery 🤱🏻
Babies can enter this world in one of two ways:
Pregnant women can have either a vaginal birth or a surgical delivery by Caesarean section, but the ultimate goal of both delivery methods is to safely give birth to a healthy baby.
In some cases, C-sections are planned for medical reasons that make a vaginal birth too risky. A woman may know in advance that she will need a C-section and schedule it because she is expecting twins or other multiples, or because she may have a medical condition, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
A C-section may also be scheduled ahead of time because a woman has an infection that she could pass along to her baby during birth, such as HIV or genital herpes, or if she experiences problems with the placenta during her pregnancy.
A C-section may also be necessary for certain situations, such as delivering a very large baby in a mother with a small pelvis, or if the baby is not in a heads-down position and efforts to turn the baby into this position before birth have been unsuccessful.

I had a c-section for my first born and now 9 years later I’m having my second one I’m 7 weeks today
I had 1 C-section and 2 vaginal…. All my kids were healthy babies. My 2nd son which was a C-section had the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. When my Grandma was alive she always told me not to reach up high with my first son. So i never did. My 2nd pregnancy (son) i would reach up high which resulted him having the cord around the neck. NEVER REACH HIGH IF YOU DONT HAVE TOO.
Needed a c section due to my girl being breech but I went into labor and got to a 9 by the time I got to the hospital so I am at least happy with myself that I got that far without pain meds like I wanted. Our bodies endure so much more than we think. It’s amazing!
I was in labor for 27 hours with my first just to have an emergency C-section because my little boy was in fetal distress and his heart rate dropped Then again another C-section with my second because I developed a fever during my 23 hours of labor and again my son’s heart rate dropped then another c-section with my last, he was premature due to me developing H.E.L.P syndrome I do wish I had experience giving birth naturally but I also know those cesareans most likely save my boys lives
9 hours natural birth. Very lucky and am very proud of myself too. My boy was a trooper and came into this world very fast.
C section a week ago😢still in pain.😢was induced didn’t work,so emergency c section.but me and baby fine.what a little gift.❤️
I was in labor for 33 hours! My daughter got stuck while pushing & I had to have a C section 💕
I just gave birth through c-section 2 weeks ago. I was going to be induced due to my high blood pressure but it didn’t work out, so c-section it was. Baby boy is healthy and happy.
Me and my baby would have died if it wasn’t for c-section in the last moment .I’m so happy that everything turned out good.🙌
Anyone. As long as mother and child come out okay 😊
Planned for a vaginal birth but ended up having an emergency c-section due to preeclampsia and it being to stressful for the baby and I
I experienced both
Is it possible to have an elective C-Section, as a birthing choice not for medical reasons?!
I’m 36 weeks today, I want a natural birth but I found out last week my little man is breech and I don’t think he’s turning for anyone lol. I don’t want him to be physically turned so I’m going to let nature take its course and if I end up having a c section then that’s what I’ll do. As long as he arrives safely that’s all that matters 💙
C section 👌🏼👍🏼

Emergency C~section. It Was terrifying, but my baby was born. She was in Breech and would not turn. Thank good goodness for advanced medicine and the hospitals.
