    i had what they termed to be an "elective-c" but there were valid medical reasons behind my request.

    however, they do not allow you to just "choose" a c-section. there needs to be consultation between you and the doctors and a valid medical reason behind it.

    As far as I know, if you've had a previous C-section, then you can go for elective C-section. As Cara mentioned, I don't think they would perform a C-section unless your (medical) situation calls for one.
