I believe that a normal delivery is better than a c section delivery. A normal delivery could be natural and active. A water birth might be possible and that is calm plus relaxing. A normal birth could be at home which is the type of births I have had with midwife attendance. It could be at a midwife led birthing center. A c section will have to be done in a hospital. It will be a medically managed birth and the lady will have a scar afterwards. One of my friends got an infection in her wound. Another friend of mine had a 33 hour labor and then an emergency c section. She is currently expecting her second baby. She will be having a planned c section. Some ladies that had their first baby with a c section try a normal delivery when they have their second baby. It is a strain for the body to have many c sections in a life time. One or two c sections are fine. I have had three home births. I had a water pool for the first one. My labor was eight hours. I used gas and air. For my second birth I laid on my sofa. My labor that time was just two and a half hours. My third labor lasted seven hours. I had my baby born on my sofa bed. A home music can be played and a lady can do relaxation techniques. She can have as much time as she likes. In some hospitals ladies are rushed. Good luck with your birthing plan and your baby's birth.

I have heard about water birth, im very much interested. really, so much interested!!!!But unfortunely there's no that service here, i already checked some hospital here. Maybe if i choose to deliver baby at home, it can be done...but all my family want me to go to hospital....

I wanted to have my first at home but my father talked me out of it...which was good cause in the end, I could not delivery normally....I agree with your approach but I would recommend the first be in a hospital just to make sure they are not like me. I do bet you had a wonderful experience though....I am jealous...lol

Thanks for the best response. For my first birth I hired the birthing pool. For my second birth I bought a birth pool in a box and have it up my loft. I didn't get to use it because my second baby was born whilst it was filling up. I was expecting a quick labor the third time so I didn't bother getting the birth pool down from my loft. I would recommend a water birth because it is so relaxing and takes away much of the pain. Good luck.

Well i have had two kids and both of them were deliverd normal and i have to tell you normal is the best way to go unless you have to have a caesarean i beleave tha delivering normal helps the bond with your baby.

Ok...thats true, normal delivery is better than caesaren, but i wonder why many people still choose caesarean? even most of my relatives they choose this way...

Natural normal delivery is always best when possible...but I had a birth defect (flat pelvis) so I had all my three son's by caesarean. The downside of that is that it takes some much longer to get back on your feet, it takes the body a full year to fully get back to normal after a C-section...since it is major surgery...plus with each following pregnancy, you have to worry about the scar tissue rupturing. My advice...go normal....and if possible go totally natural. That is what I wanted to do, even went to the child birthing classes but in the end I could not deliver naturally. What ever way you go....wishing you the very best...

I had twice c-section. But its not my choice, I just can't deliver normally. But if I have a choice, I'll go for normal.
