I had to have a c-section with my oldest because she was a breech baby and for me that was very scary. The whole thing was almost like a sci-fy alien abduction movie, Stripped down, cold, bright lights, people everywhere, just horrible. Then I didn't even get to see her until two hours later because they had to finish the surgery and send me to recovery. I swore I was going to do whatever it took to have a vbac next time. When the next time did come I was able to have my vbac and it was the best experience ever. Yes it hurt and was completely exhausting, but there was soo much emotion that goes into it and it was warm (ok it was hot, i delivered in just a bra) and natural and I wasn't separated from my new little girl at all. When it was over there wasn't relief that it was over it was just happiness. I couldn't have asked for better. I love my girls just the same, but I definitely like the second birth better.
