My first baby was breech and they never really gave me the option of turning him. I was just told few months before that if he didn't turn I was having a c-section. But that was because he was my first. They told me that it's not safe to have a breech baby when it's your first. My mum had my brother breech vaginally, second baby and she had a horrible birth, but he was a huge bubba too. I've had three c-sections now and delivery was much nicer feet first through the incision. DD1 was engaged and had to use the forceps to get her out of the incision. DD2, epidural didn't quite work and sort of felt them pulling her out of it and wasn't nice at all. It's major surgery as you will know and as with any abdominal surgery there is lots of things that can go wrong. I've had three traumatic c-sections, with complication during and after surgery. But you could be fine and recover well. I was fine a couple of weeks after my breech c-section. Had wound break down a bit, which made me feel like crap for a couple of days. If you manage your pain, if you have any. Look after your wound. Don't try to over do anything, you should be fine. My second c-section was an emergency after trying for a VBAC. It didn't progress because of scar tissue from the first c-section. Third I just didn't want to go through that again. But as I've never given birth vaginally I cann't really say which would be easier. Can give you a long list of all of the things that have gone wrong with mine, but in the long run they all seem so insignificant when I look at my three beautiful children. Vaginal might be a bad time, but after it you can get up and tend to your baby right from the start. C-section, have to wait for epidural or spinal block to wear off, then hard to move with drip and catheter in, have to manage pain and can take longer for milk to come in if you're breastfeeding. Read up on everything, ask Dr plenty of questions and I am sure you will do the right thing for you. Good luck:) Can PM if you like.
