My daughter goes to the day care center at my University, and when I was picking her up this afternoon, I started talking to one of the other moms there. We started talking about how Christina & Nicole had their babies just recently and just in general how our own babies were doing. The conversation started pretty normal, until we started talking about Christina. I haven't read it online, but she said that Christina had a planned C-Section. I was just like "ok, that's her choice" adn the woman starts rambling on about how those who have elected C-Sections are wimps and don't really deserve to say that they have given birth. She said all they did was have a surgery. I've never really thought too much about this, but is there an "eliteness" when it comes to giving birth? Are those who give birth vaginally, without drugs "better" than those that have elected C-Sections?? Now, I by no means agree with having scheduled C-Sections unless it is absolutely necessary , but I don't think it's really fair to say that those who decide to have an epidural or other types of drugs are inferior or "wimps". Have any of you ever heard anybody say something along those lines???
