Preplanned non-optional C-Section?
Hi girls, I was wondering if anyone else had any experience of having to have a c-section. I had bowel surgery in 2012 and the antenatal consultant has told me today that she doesn't think I'll be allowed to try a natural birth and that I'll most likely have to have a preplanned c-section.
How did you feel knowing ahead of time you weren't going to get a chance to try things naturally and how did it affect your birthing experience / bonding afterwards? I was always under the impression from my surgeon that I should be able to give birth naturally after the op but it looks like that isn't the case now!
