Congratulations! Childbirth is an incredible experience and different every tome. Most women find it a very intense experience. I like to compare it to an extreme sport... Maybe painful, may be hard work, may be scary, but also exhilarating, incredible and amazing! If you are worried about pain during childbirth ask your midwife or doctor about the different pain relief options available to you. Many women get an epidural which numbs you from the waist down. Other natural Odin relievers are taking a warm bath and massage.

You can only really get a cesarean if there's a medical reason why you can't have a vaginal birth. Obviously it is painful but there are things you can do to try and cope with it, water birth, tens machine, gas and air. Personally I ended up having an epdiural because I had quite a long labor. Make a birth plan, it might help you understand what options you can consider but try not to dwell on how much it might hurt and try and enjoy your pregnancy. Congratulations.

Cindy, if it's really you, you may want to remove names from your post hmm

Yes, it bloody hurts

Caesarian is abdominal surgery. With stitches and anaesthesia and a recovery period. It's not a painless alternative.

Sausages is this one of those threads? It did make me go hmm but wanted to be helpful just in case?

No no it doesn't hurt at all, it's great fun. It'll probably all be over in 10 minutes and you can get back to Jeremy Kyle.

The thing that amazes me about childbirth is that for all of these years women have been lying about it and saying that it hurts. It has now been scientifically proven that the lies are an evolutionary behaviour designed to put other women off having children so that there is less competition between children for scarce resources. So don't worry, whatever you have heard about birth being painful is just lies. And if you are considering having more than one baby by cesarean they can now put a zipper in so that you don't need surgery every time - just ask your midwife if your local hospital is one that offers this.

ooops that didn't work! I am confused and sceptical.

Good luck Cindy - it does hurt any way you choose to give birth.

sjuperwolef Wed 14-Sep-11 16:03:22

Sjupes and breatheslowly grin

When I gave birth I just sneezed and DD popped out. She then learnt how to bf IMMEDIATELY and slept through the night from day 1. hmm

Me too, I had a planned casarian and discharged myself the next day. I would have gone home the same day but pulling my catheter out was a bit painful. Not too bad obviously, your wee hole is a different one to your fanny birthing hole.
I honeslty wouldn't worry too much Cindy, don't listen to the nasty people that tell you your body isn't your own afterwards, if you do opt for the zip or just the plain casarian, you'll keep your baby making equipment in tip top tight condition.

sjuperwolef Wed 14-Sep-11 16:26:05

wolefs - grin

my baby making stuffs sealed right back up after my birth my boyfreind was sooo happy we were at it like rabbits the same night once the baby was sleeping - as soon as we put it down!

i would love a zip envy i think you should go for that one cindy smile xx
