I have had three c-sections. I have four kids, my first was natural and my labor wasn't the best, but I managed to get him out in the end.
My second was breech and I had an elective c-section, honestly, I loved it, compared to the chaos of my first, it was so calm and relaxed, I felt like everything was under control, iykwim.
My third was breech also, so I elected for another c-section, but there was one slight problem, he weighed 11pounds and 1 ounce. Because he was so big, he had pushed all of my internal organs up into my chest cavity so that when he was taken out and everything dropped back down, I felt like I was being crushed, it was excruciating and even with spinal block I could still feel it. I ended up screaming for them to knock me out. Also, due to his size, he was too big to fit out of a standard c-section incision, so he got stuck and they could not get him out, at this point my elective became an emergency and they cut me very quickly, and not so neatly, on either side to widen the incision. Josh was eventually pulled out not breathing and in a very bad way, he needed cardiac massage to get him going and spent the night in NICU. Finally, because my placenta was also very big, when it was removed, I lost huge amounts of blood and needed a blood transfusion, not very nice!!
My fourth was another c-section and that was fine, just the same as the second.
So it all depends, sometimes they are good, sometimes they are not!!
