Which one is best needs kind of a complicated answer. Natural delivery is just that - natural and should be the norm. The mother (and father) are more intimately involved with the entire birth process. Healing after delivery is also quicker. C-sections done as an emergency measure are a great 'Plan B' when natural birth is not going to happen. Better a live baby than ... Scheduled C-sections also allow parents to plan better for the birth since they are not waiting for the big surprise moment. C-sections are great for having babies with beautifully shaped heads. Downside to C-sections is certainly that the road back to health takes longer and is more difficult. Do you agree? What do you think of my comparison?

I wouldn't know because I've had 2 c-sections. However, I know that with both of mine, I had a horrible time recovering. I would think that a normal delivery would be easier to bounce back from.

Actually I recovered quicker from a C-Section than I did from a normal birth. My 1st was a normal and I took awhile to recover. My 2nd was a C-Section due to her being breech and I was up in 24hrs when they told me I could get up. The nurses were amazed that I was up walking around that soon but I felt good.

Natural delivery was a horrible experience for me... and one I wouldn't change for the world. I hope I get to have all my children without a c-section. As it was, they had to use vacuum suction to get the little stinker out, and even that killed me because I WANTED TO DO IT! Oh well. Oh, and her head is a gorgeous shape, even with vacuum extraction. Symmetrical head, really.

I had 2 c-sections. With the first one I was stuck pushing for 4 hours. Finally they had to do an emergency one on me. With the second baby, I didn't want to take any chances. My mother also, had 2 c-sections. Someone about having a twisted uterus?

However, with the first c-section, I had a LOT of hemoragging. (sp?). So, the dr. had to "reach" up in and pull clots out. Aparently, the nurse didn't push all my parts down far enough when I was sewn up. There was literally blood dripping onto the floor from my bed being soaked. So, I guess a normal del. would have been better if I could have done it.

I'm going to request a c-section as I am terrified of normal birth plus would feel resentful if natural birth affected my sexlife.

i don't know. i had a normal birth and the c-section girls were up and doing laps around the hospital while i was so sore and barely able to get off the bed on my own. my cousin has a c-section and a few hours later she was sitting up and feeding the baby when i came to visit her and didnt seem to be in any pain.

I think a normal delivery is safer because a c-section runs the same risks as any other surgical procedure. If anesthesia is used, there is a chance the patient could die, there could be post-op infections, etc.

I had my daughter by emergency C-section and I had problems recovering but not due to the c-section. I had a back up in my intestines because I had eatten not too long before I ended up in the ER. I had to be put completely out and your digestive system shuts down but mine still had food to digest. It wasn't fun but again had nothing to due with the c-section really.

Definently normal delivery. It takes a lot longer to recover from a c section, it's a lot more difficult to get over. When you do normal delivery you are uncomfortable during the labor, but after that you can get up and walk around and stuff, you can't do that with a c section.
