I had an emergency cesarean with my first child as he was stuck ( they discovered this after 30 hours of labour! ) so when I fell pregnant with my second I was too scared to even try and give birth naturally and was going to book straight in for a cesar, luckily my doctor talked me out of it and I had a perfectly normal delivery, (although at times I was asking for a cesar just to get it over and done with!)
I am so glad I didn't book in for a cesar as the recovery side of it is so much better, I was up and walking around within 1/2 hour of having my baby.
They did tell me though if I hadn't been progressing well they would have given me a cesar, just to avoid too much pressure on the scar.
I am now pregnant with our third baby and I am confident that will be a natural delivery also, as I know I can do it now.
I hope all goes well for you and that you get to have the delivery that you want.
Don't be scared, you can do it!
