of course not, it's not alright at all, that is not what I'm saying. I'm was discussing the fact that it's a certain age group that seem to go towards c-section out of choice, not talking about c-sections that have happened because of medical interventions. women who have had to have c-sections due to medical interventions seem to be of the bigger nature, or also carrying multiple births which is something they can't actually help.
but why are these soon to be mothers getting so fat while pregnant in the first place? lack of education on what food should be consumed while pregnant and which should be avoided. the obese seem to be in the poorer class.
I know that during the labour government years ( that's when i was pregnant) there was a healthy vouchers given to expecting mothers for themselves and their families to encourage them to eat healthy, that vouchers could only be redeemed for fruit, veg and milk. this has now been abolished
I would rather have my tax money spent of educating, our even reward scheme's for expecting mothers to keep within a healthy weight throughout their pregnancy than having to pay for specialist equipment for women who have placed themselves in danger becasue of over eating.

i suspect we're talking here about the ones that are fat before getting pregnant.
probably yes although we might be getting slightly off-topic here.
but it appears from the relevant information that some fat women do actually have sex.

but for a young mother..........we all hear stories of 24 hours and more in labour in agony.......and stories of having our lady bits cut open with a knife or ripped open by a babies head.......of pooing ourselves when we were pushing........ but you rarely hear stories of bad c sections.......just heard one above ......but you rarely hear the horror stories............ so for a pregnant woman .which sounds better...........even though its not the best thing medically........
I think there might be something in that. Natural birth per se doesn't worry me, but you hear absolute horror stories coming out of maternity wards nowadays. At least with a C-section you know that you have to have a team around you and you're not going to be left to give birth in a corridor.
That said I really can't see myself electing for a C-section. I'd rather get the grandparents to have a whip around for a private midwife! When the NHS is so overstretched I'm not really sure it can be justified.
I'd be interested in a good study on women's motivations and the reasons behind the rise in C-sections. I really don't buy the Heat theories...
Two children (8lb15oz and 9lb9oz), 'normal' delivery, no pain relief of any description. What's the problem?
