10 positive things I learned from my c/s

Easy Steps to a Safer Pregnancy - View e-book or Download PDF - FREE!
An interactive resource for moms on easy steps they can take to reduce exposure to chemical toxins during pregnancy.

Other excellent resources about avoiding toxins during pregnancy

These are easy to read and understand and are beautifully presented.

  1. I learned that my OB is not pro-VBAC
  2. I learned that I was grossly uninformed about childbirth
  3. I learned that I had more emotional pain from the c/s than I ever realized.
  4. I learned that, if given a chance, statistically I could have probably vaginally birthed my baby.
  5. I learned that it's ok to be outspoken, well-informed, and possibly rude, if that's what it takes to have my baby my way.
  6. I learned that I love my children no matter which way they came into this world. (That one goes without saying for all of us, I'm sure!)
  7. I learned that not all women "numb" the same when it comes to a spinal and surgery w/o total anesthetic is horrible.
  8. I learned that I must roll with the punches when it comes to childbirth, but that I must also throw some punches or I will get beaten down.
  9. I learned that I must have informed, knowledgeable, supportive persons at my side during childbirth/labor so that they can ask the questions I am in no state to answer.
  10. I learned that I don't have to sign a da*n thing the hospital wants to throw my way.

How about this list of 10 positive things your cesarean gave you?? I would love to hear some of the things on other peoples list if you are willing to share...

  1. I avoided an episiotomy.
  2. It made me learn about the benefits of natural birth.
  3. I am soooooo much more enlightened about birth now than I ever would have been if my hospital birth went ok.
  4. It made me breastfeed longer. (maybe?)
  5. It turned me from a mundane housewife into a radical weirdo.
  6. It made me more particular about my friends.
