Even though I was scared of the birthing process,after taking our class I felt a lot better about it. However, we have a couple of complications, and now we are looking at a very possible elective C-section before my due date. Just when I got myself all prepared for the labor pain and the birthing process, now I am having to deal with the downside of C section. I am scared with all the horrible stories I've heard about it being a surgery, how difficult recovery is, etc etc. Anybody out there with a rather positive experience with their C section? Do you feel that you'd missed out on experiencing the birth (no laboring, don't know how labor pain feels like, etc)? Anything positive about a C section (other than it's medically necessary for the mom and/or baby)? Anything? I am getting nervous and trying to focus on the positives here ... Thanks.
