    I beg that all pregnant moms, and TTC ladies do some real research on bith practices in the US. The US has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the developed world, as well as one of the highest C section rates. WHO (world health organization) suggests that any country should not have a C section rate above 12-13%, the US is holding strong at around 30%, with some states as high as 50%. This is a problem. Obviously, if the choices are infant death or C section, choose the section. Otherwise, C section isn’t whats best for baby’s respiratory system. I’d highly suggest watching “Business of Being Born” as a primer to this serious humans rights issue we have in the US. Although, it is just a primer.

    Also, the idea that your vagina hangs out after vaginal birth is quite silly, to be frank. There is actually a higher risk of bladder and vaginal prolapse with C sections.
