'Say what you will, but both my babies were born by c-section and I couldn't be happier.'
A few weeks ago Mamamia spoke to Alexis Hure about her amazingly calm home birth, and for an entirely different yet equally positive perspective, mum-of-two Alana Dagwell tells Mamamia about the wonderful experience she had with her two caesarean (c-section) births.
“During the pregnancy with my eldest daughter in 2012, I tried not to think too hard about the delivery itself. I was so tired and uncomfortable that I was just trying to get through the working day before tumbling into bed at 6pm,” Alana said.
“At an appointment with my obstetrician around the 30-week mark, she told me that my baby was in a breech position. As is current standard practice in Australia for breech presentation, I was booked in for a c-section at the Newcastle Private Hospital on 19 December. I admit that I felt rather happy and relieved to know that I wouldn’t be going through labour.”
