Our 10th baby, Isabella, was our first c-section. Here’s why we came to the decision to have a c-section after two home births.
Because of our birth history and Nick’s brachial plexus injury at birth, any more children we have (including the little one currently being formed) will be born via c-section.
Our first c-section was wonderful, Isabella was handed to me shortly after birth and I was able to hold her while they finished stitching me back up, but Mark and I have been talking about how to make it even better.
Yesterday I saw this video posted at Grateful For Grace. It’s amazing and brought tears to my eyes. I would love to be able to watch my baby be born, to have the privilege of discovering his/her gender and to have the baby immediately placed on my chest even while having a C-section.
I’m praying that the Lord will open our OB’s heart to helping us come close to this type of birth in 4 1/4 months.
If you had to have a C-section, would you choose something like this?
