I'm having a repeat csection after a traumatic labor. My pelvis is too narrow and baby never descended. He was 7 lbs. My water broke on its own etc, so it's not like I was induced or anything. My son and I almost died when I was giving birth and I don't want to go through the same thing again. I decided to do a repeat csection this time. The thought of a VBAC doesn't even cross my mind anymore after reading so much about it.
Does any of the moms who decided to get a RCS hear some criticism from other moms? I feel like Im always surronded by moms who have unmedicated births at home or birthing centers. I feel like there is a lot of criticism on csections and sometimes people don't understand that in many cases it is the safest option. It really hurts me at times when people make it sound like I am less of a woman or mom for choosing the csection.
I think what is upsetting me is a lunch conversation yesterday in which my choice of giving birth through a RCS became a heated topic between 3 other people while I just watched.
