I was reading one of the threads about whether people think we need a c/s board on TB. Several people suggested that people with c/s questions could ask over here but someone mentioned that we were a little "extreme" in our beliefs. Thoughts?
Personally, my "extremism" is in knowledge. I don't care if a woman decides to have a c/s or a VBAC as long as they have taken the time to educate themselves on both and not just blindly followed whatever a medical provider says. I think at our age, we know that not all doctors are created equal and (unfortunately) some are driven by legal reasons. This is why there is such thing as a second opinion, right? But for me, it really bugs me when people take either decision lightly. Knowledge is key, for me.
But I don't see myself as a person who would try to "force" a VBAC on anyone nor do I look down upon people who have c/s's. I'm happy to answer c/s questions. I don't think we all have horror stories (as some others on the thread suggested) and I think that many of us researched so much that we know the pros and cons of both decisions.
