I am writing a paper for school on the rate of c-setion vs Natural birth in the last 10 years and I need to make a chart so if you've given birth in the last 10 years I would love your input I'd like to know the year your child was born and rather they were natural c-section or an elective c-section I don't need names or anything else just the year and the way they were born I need 100 births so anything you offer would be a HUGE help!!!

2007-natural
2009-natural
Our local hospital has a 72% c birth rate...not too promising...

My only child was born June 2009 via c-section. After 18 hours of labor, and only dilating 4cm (while on pitocin), the dr. recommended a c-section so we could get my son out w/in 24 hours of my water breaking.

this should be fun
ok 2004- i was just 18- i had pain meds but had to let them wear off because i couldn't push-had her in GA the doctors were not so great and didn't seem like they went to school to be an OB
2006-i had her natural no pain meds- had her in NH and they were great they listened to me there no fightings about what was going on with me..
2007 i had my son natural with IV pain meds that you can only have once but since i was in labor for so long they had wore off also i had a stupid doctor that told me i wasn't pushing HELLO 3rd child with no pain meds-had him in Okinawa, Japan
2010-had pain meds because they said things had changed and they have they worked this time! and i had her here in Fort Fragg, NC
So different places, different years.. different doctors..
