I had an emergency c section with my first and it is truly something I want to avoid with my second. I know that some "natural" deliveries can be very traumatic and leave you with pretty nasty tears and things to recover from, but a c section was probably the most difficult thing my body has had to cope with.
It certainly is hell trying to get your baby down gently into their bassinet, lower yourself into the bed, get back up slowly, hobble over and try lift them gently when they cry again. It was painful to cuddle and nurse my baby. I found even opening jars for a couple weeks was hard, because you actually use your core muscles for that. The pain meds made me vomit, made my skin itch, made me feel like I was walking through fuzz. My husband had to take time off work to help look after me and the baby, as I couldn't cope on my own. I couldn't walk to the dairy for milk, and I couldn't drive. My scar site was tender to the touch for a year afterwards. I had dissolvable stitches.
During pregnancy your body changes so much that honestly, your "bits" are probably the last thing you give a flying f$$$ about by the end of 9 months! Doing kegel exercises daily might mean you come out of it with new and improved "bits"
Having said that, if you decide elective c section is what you want to do then it's your choice and you should find an LMC that supports your decision and doesn't poo poo you for knowing what you want.
Best of luck with your pregnancy
