I had a C-Sec after 18 hours of labor. Baby was perfectly healthy we were in the hospital for 5 almost 6 days. I didn't do so good with the surgery lost a lot of blood... but I recovered after two transfusions. It took me about 4 weeks to be able to get out of bed by myself. It was totally worth it. I was not worried about it at all I didn't stress out nothing was 100% calm and signed the papers and was ready to go.


My son was born via c-section because of complications during labor. He never got sick until he was almost over with his Kindergarten year.Oh and he was formula fed too! He must have just lucked out in the immune system department :)


After his surgery, he will be in the hospital for at least a week. We were told the only thing he may come home with is a feeding tube.I am glad that I will not have to have a C Section, except in the normal cases of birth. I am also thankful that I will be able to go into labor naturally

1. My partner and I did a test drive to the hospital to see how long it really takes to get there. Okay, actually we did several test drives. At different times of day. And mapped three different routes, just in case.
