C-Section or Vaginal Birth?

Here I am.. pregnant with my first baby.. supposed to be filling out my birth plan to discuss with my doctor in the next week BUT I am stuck between whether or not I should schedule a C-section to avoid strenuous labor hours or endure the emotional marathon of vaginal birth with my family in the same room? I have been told several times that a C-section is without a doubt the safest way to deliver a baby, considering its a more controlled environment.. but I really wanted to have that instant moment of skin to skin with a vaginal birth! Wondering if any other Mama has any experience with this same dilemma..

I had to have a emergency c-section and I must tell you that if you can go Vaginal so it! The recovery for a c-section is BRUTAL and it’s major surgery! Especially because it is your first I would for sure do Vaginal!!!

Girl save yourself the pain. C sections may seem easier but after having an emergency one I can tell you the recovery is BRUTAL. Ppl underestimate what c section mamas go through. I wish I had a vaginal birth

A c section is actually more dangerous as natural birth is intended for your body and a c section is a major surgery. If you have natural birth with an epidural like I did, it’s great!

I've had 3 emergency c-sections. They are definitely not easy. The recovery sucks! Though everyone is different I personally would try to labor before opting for surgery, C-sections are major surgery. There is risk in both vaginal and C-section deliveries. You just need to understand your options before deciding.
