Since when is being cut open taking the easy way out? C-sections are much harder to deal with afterwards what with all the possible infections, extra care needed to the incision area not to mention the longer recovery time and all that pain/soreness. I haven't had one but even if I were given the option just bc the doctor said I could (meaning no other complications to actually force a c-section), I would much rather opt for a vaginal delivery.

I agreed to a C section to save one of my daughters lives. during surgery i was okay, i felt like i couldnt breath due the the epidoral, after the babies were out and i was all closed up the first nurse gave me a morphin shot then 10 minutes later the second nurse was unaware of my first shot so gave me another one, i was out of it!! the morphin didnt wear off till 5am the next day(i got the shots at 5pm) but the epidoral didnt wear off till noon and it took two nurses to get me outta bed.

 

All that was worth it cuz I was able to see both my girls smile.gif

Also, there is a possibility of nerve damage.

 

Just adding to your list. smile.gif

The study could be onto something as far as helping with the newborn bonding since breastfeeding does produce certain hormones that make changes in your body. One of these hormones is pitocin that will help get your uterus back to normal quicker. Now I don't think that mothers who don't breastfeed don't bond with their babies. I think bottlefeeding can be just as much bonding as long as the baby is being held and attended to. I'm a huge breastfeeding advocate and have nursed both of our kids (2 1/2 years each) but I don't have anything against mothers who choose to bottle feed or are forced to bottlefeed due to wrong information from the medical community/family or due to illness etc. I was not able to nurse our 2nd child right away so I had pump and bottle feed her and the emotional roller coaster was awful. Luckily with the right support and advice I was able to start nursing her full time and throw the bottles in the trash. If I had been a first time mom in that situation, I probably would have never nursed. Luckily I knew from prior experiences and kept looking for help and advice. I was also very fortunate to have my husband Tony's full support and help. Unfortunately many mothers don't get their significant other's support when it comes to breastfeeding which in turn can lead to bottlefeeding etc.

 

I think a mother who is already detached from the baby whether it's due to post partum depression or other reason's, it's so much easier to detach more from the baby if you are bottlefeedin because you can have anybody take care of the baby besides you. If you are exclusively breastfeeing, you are with that baby 24/7 and you can't just leave them with someone else. Breastfeeding in such situation might help the new mom feel more attached to the baby if the maternal instincts didn't kick in naturally after the birth for whatever reason.

 

There are so many reasons why mothers have to go through the things they do such as birth options and feeding options and nobody should be judged based on their choices. I think more energy should be spent on education all women of all the options available and the pros and cons so that they can make the best decision for themselves and the baby. There is always the chance that medical reasons warrant another course of action than originally was intended and that should be respected also.

    • Let's share Halloween makeup looks! 👻 I've attached a few of mine and I'd love to see yours, please share them!
    • The green and yellow look a little out of place, but otherwise this looks like a great palette! I have the Jeffree Star Blue Blood Palette and I love it! His formulas are really pigmented and they're pretty easy to blend too. 
    • Hyaluronic acid has been a go-to item for people with dry skin. Other things you can change with your routine is to try to not stay on the shower for a long time especially if you shower or bather in warm water. Use toners that hydrate skin. Also, put on your moisturizer while skin is damp to really pack in the hydration.   Just some of the few you can do.
    • I just placed an order on this pallet and I want to know your opinion  https://nadininebrushes.com/products/jeffree-star-palette
    • Sometimes it seems to me that students don't always understand the essence of their problem. Studying at a college or university takes a lot of time, we all went through this. I don't dispute someone else's choice. You can buy an essay if it makes your life easier. But such students must think through their actions. Check ready-made assignments. Use code plagiarism detector. It would be stupid if you get caught plagiarizing. Education fees are high enough to risk your reputation with just a few sheets of text.
