Today many children are born by caesarean section. While in the last century this operation was considered difficult and risky, spending only in extreme cases. What do you think it necessary to do Caesarean section if it is possible to use a natural way?

I would have much rather given birth the natural way but unfortunately I had to do c-section because my child was breeched. I do know a few people who have told me that it's a lot easier than pushing a kid out. I find that to be difficult to believe since you need to have an incision made right above the pubic bone.

A person who gives birth naturally if all goes well goes home 2 days later with their baby and a person who has c-section in 5 to 7 days. Plus it's painful (the c-section)

giving someone life is already an act of bravery. so, the way of giving birth is an own decision of each women. It has been proved by science that a person can bear 45 Del (units of pain) of pain, but during the birth the pain of women can reach up to 57 Del. It is the same as a pain when 20 bones of person are broken at the same time. how can a women be calm before giving birth, knowing this thing? one more argument against the anesthesia: modern technology has discovered the wonderful type of anesthesia called epidural anesthesia. it is most popular method of pain relief during labor. it blocs the pain in the lower part of the body. women continues to be conscious. using it, women have more positive birth experience. more than 50% of women use this type of giving birth in hospitals. it is not risk for human organism. and relief from it is much easier and quicker than it would be in the case of general anesthesia.

Millions of women gave birth to a child and not only one without any anesthesia at all and they all got through it and no one died from this pain. This pain could be withstand and women have already proved this. Women should not be afraid of childbirth in advance and they should calm themselves with the fact that after they will receive the best gift of their life - their babies.

First of all let me say that I believe the woman should have the choice. It is her body after all.

Now, I agree that many women over time gave birth naturally, and generally it works. But a C-section has many positives as well.

1. It has led to a higher mortality rate world wide

2. There are times it has been medically needed for mother or child

3. It provides an alternative...more choices are better than fewer choices

4. It prevents the need or desire for reconstructive surgery

5. It helps with some of the causes of postpartum depression because the woman feel more desirable sexually to her partner.

I am sure there are more.

If a doctor is pushing it, that may be bad...let the mother decide unless it is a life or death situation.

Recent increasing of the popularity of cesarean can actually find quite a logical explanation. The young ladies who voluntarily lodge under the knife, talk about the benefits of surgery over conventional, natural childbirth. First of all, no pain: surgery is performed under general anesthesia, the woman does not feel pain. As a result of delivery of the frightening events are turning into quite a tolerable measure.

Secondly, the modern development of the technology remain inconspicuous after surgery cosmetic scars. And it is far better than the gaps and seams in the crotch of normal childbirth. In addition, the state of female genital mutilation is not violated.

If the baby is going to be too large, there must be this type of procedure in order to save both the baby and the mother.

I think that cesarean must be used only in extreme cases when woman because of weak health is unable to give birth naturally or if during childbirth her life or her baby's are at real risk. Clear, that in such situation cesarean must be immediately done because welfare of mother and baby are still on the first place. But cesarean should not be a preferred alternative to natural childbirth. I believe that every women should get through this process in spite of all fear and feel a real sense of the "bringing" new life=)

One of the arguments against cesarean is that it is quite a big risk for a woman. The main risk first of all connected with the use of anesthesia (especially general anesthesia ) which is serious challenge for the organism. In addition, each operation accompanied by a severe post-operative period(If after normal childbirth a woman remains in hospital a day or two, then after cesarean stay in the hospital comes up six or seven days) and by different complications such as the risk of infection,

large blood loss (the loss of blood during cesarean section is twice the usual amount of blood loss during childbirth), the weakening of bowel function and many other.

Unfortunately this method of birth affects the baby as well. Doctors have found that there is a risk that some children after cesarean will have some breathing problems. Doctors explain it this way: during natural childbirth baby passes through the narrow birth canal and amniotic fluid which contributes to improving the work of this organ is squeezed from the lungs. Children who were born by cesarean section are relieved from the necessity to pass this hard way and that why they are much more likely to have difficulties with breathing. So, after birth they will need additional oxygen, some medical care and a long-term adaptation because of the sharp change in pressure during the extraction from the uterus at cesarean section. As a result mother will be able to contact with her baby only on the second or third day.

In my opinion one of the most convincing arguments in favor of natural childbirth is the fact that mother can immediately see the baby and hold him to her chest and she is ready to suffer any possible pain for only this wonderful moment...

By the way, young mothers who gave birth by cesarean in addition to postpartum depression sometimes feel a "complex of missed childbirth"which for a long time will not give them peace of mind. The organism does not receive a signal that the birth took place, so there is a feeling of incompleteness, incorrectness of what is happening. The first minutes, when a child is born and placed on the mother's belly, for many parents are the happiest moment in life. During c-section mothers are deprived of this bright experiences and even if a cesarean is done under local anesthesia, these moments are usually not as impressive as in the natural childbirth. So, it is also a minus of cesarean.

There is another argument : recently, scientists from the Institute of Public Health in Oslo (Norway), surveyed 2803 children, found that babies who were born by caesarean section, 7 times more likely to have allergic reactions to foods. Scientists believe that this is due to the peculiarities of the microflora of the intestinal tract. Cesarean section is a delay in the development of intestinal microflora, and this leads to impaired digestion processes.

I read that children born by cesarean are much more physically and mentally strong because during birth they aren't exposed to stress passing through the birth canal and don't feel pain caused by contractions.

I found another info about children who was born through cesarean. According data of western psychologists children who did not pass through a stage of contractions are afraid of changes, tend to be too sensitive, quick-tempered, anxious, exaggerating the complexity of the situation and their abilities to self-control and planning are decreased in compare with other children.
