I hear a lot of women do it now...I was born by c-section but it was due to complications...then my mom had my little bro and sis naturally...but The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that the rate of Caesarean sections should not exceed 15% in any country. However, in recent years the rate has risen to a record level of 46% in China and to levels of 25% and above in many Asian countries, Latin America, and the USA.
It puts the baby at risk for some things including: Neonatal depression: babies may have an adverse reaction to the anesthesia given to the mother, causing a period of inactivity or sluggishness after delivery .Fetal injury,Breathing problems
Breastfeeding problems. Also, Type 1 Diabetes, a 2008 study found that children born by Caesarean section have a 20% higher likelihood of developing type 1 Diabetes in their lifetimes than babies born vaginally.
But I mean maybe its worth avoiding the pain or vaginal birth...Idk...I haven't given birth and I never will...what do you all think?

Personally, if I can, I want to give birth naturally. It kind of freaks me out that some women schedule the birth of their children like you would a hair appointment. My mom had a scheduled C-section with me, but only because she wouldn't have physically survived giving birth and they didn't even want her to go into labour. Hopefully, I won't have the same difficulties she has when it's my time. And, it's not as if a C-section is painless, it's major surgery you have to recover from and not one (unlike vaginal and uterine tissue) that's meant to stretch, expand and go through trauma then recover. As for the pain, you can sometimes have an epidural. I don't know enough about that to say what I would do yet, I'll cross that bridge when I'm pregnant and reading like a crazy woman to find out everything I can about pregnancy, birth, and parenting.1
