maybe i have read this the wrong way, but i dont think that people who have had a c-section requires anyones pity???
I think it is because the majority of people don't elect to have a caesarian but end up having to have one. I remember one of my friends having to have a caesarian and when I visited her in hospital, she said, I tried to have her naturally, but I had to have a caesar in the end. I remember saying, Oh you poor bugger, it was for the best. And things like, at least you're both ok etc. Unless you elect to have a caesarian, it can be quite disappointing to to end up needing one when you had your heart set on a vaginal birth. I know I was disppointed having to have one, but it was a case of do or die and my feelings were quite irrelevant really in the whole scheme of things.
