So I just finished reading the book "Knocked Up" (not the same as the movie) for fun...not pregnancy education. The book is kind of a journal of a girl's pregnancy from beginning to end. In the end she decided to have an elective c-section. She did it for several reasons, non of which were medical.
Part of her reasoning was "protecting her pelvic floor". I guess pregnancy / labor & delivery can damage your pelvic floor muscles causing urinary incontinence in some people. I actually work with a girl this happened to. She had surgery to have a sling put in but it still didn't correct the issue, thus she leaks urine to some extent every day.
So my question is, would there ever be a reason you would consider an elective c-section (other than medical reasons)? More convienent, pelvic floor reasoning, scared of natural L&D, ect? Flame free ladies. I'm curious about honest answers.
