    I had both natural birth. The 2nd almost needed 'C' due to pre-mature and breech. However, she turned on the last minute and it was a quite birth without cut on me due to her small size - 2.1kg. So I recovered extremely fast.

    Firstly, who says that a C-section isn't normal???? We live in the 21st Century where they are just as normal as any other birth - they are pretty much all assisted aren't they? You go to hospital don't you?

    I have an elective C-section - not due to pain but because of the types of things that I have heard go wrong with vaginal births and because I had a career - it was a simple way to book the brith in and have it all go smoothly. recovery was painful but that comes with having operations.

    Sorry Oz, didn't mean to upset you. This is an old post. How about I change it to Natural?

    Not upset its just that everyone makes it sound like a c-section is a cop-out. leave it as obviously no-one minds. I said my bit. They are interesting stats though.

    Everyone has their reasons for selecting a c-section. The only reason I posted the poll is that a few popular HK Drs tend to prefer c-sections and convince their patients to schedule one. At least my first Dr tried and I switched to another who would let me try a VB.

    What are peoples experiences on having a normal delivery after C section? Do doctors routinely default to C section for no good reason other than the first birth was?
    An interesting poll - if possible - would be to indicate mode of delivery matched with OB/GYN.

    An experience different from the assumptions noted

    As a mother of 2 HK born babies, I must comment on some of the generalizations here, based on my own experience.

    My doctor does do quite a few c-sections, I've heard , however both my children were born vaginally.

    My first child was scheduled for a c-sect for medical reasons, but she arrived before the appointment (4 days overdue) and my doctor respected my request for no episiotomy and encouraged the vag. birth.

    My second child was a week late and the doctor did not even suggest a c-section as being an option. The baby was 9.5 lbs. and I had an episiotomy.

    The recovery from the episiotomy was much easier, more comfortable, and faster than the tear.

    I am quite thankful for the medical care I received from my OB/GYN and have only good things to say.
