To C or not to C-Section

Facing a c-section

The time has come to think about my birth options. I’ve gone private and have the option to push out the melon. Alternatively, or more attractively – I can also have him cut out like an avocado. Enjoy that thought!

It’s an easy decision for me. I’m not afraid of operations or scars, but I am of ruining the v-jay-jay or dealing with trauma.

I know enough friends who have had such horrific childbirth stories that my mind was made up aged 21. I vowed if I ever found myself pregnant, I would go private and have a cesarean.

Keeping it real

True to my words I’m doing both, and you know what – it has proven so far to be the best decision I’ve ever made. Pricey – yes, but wise – definitely.

For other medical reasons I won’t go in to, my consultant recommended a c-section might be the best course of action – but if I’m being honest – there was no way I was ever going to push.

When women say to me ‘but what about the scar’ I inform them that they’re pretty much likely to have a scar if they decide to go ‘au natural’ and in a far worse place.

No, I’m not too posh to push , I’m too lazy to labour, or to smart to suffer – you decide!
