First off - no it doesn't (well for a little bit) but it will return to normal.
Second off you are better with natual birth than a c-section, why would you opt. For surgery (unless it is needed, all for that of course!). Natual child birth does not mean the same thing as it did years ago. You have options, one I strongly recommend is an epideral(i know I spelled that wrong). If you are scared, call a local hospital and talk to one of the rn's on the labor and delivery floor. They will be willing to answer any of your questions.

you are a lot less alone than you think.

I agree with michelle. C-sections are supposed to be used in the case of emergencies to save either the resulting child's life or your own. They aren't, even though they are more and more, to be used because the woman fears natural childbirth or for a cosmetic reason.

I've not personally gone through childbirth though I have two sisters, multiple cousins, and many friends who have. Each woman tried a different method and each woman had a different childbirth experience. Hospitals, birthing centers, and doctors/nurses/midwives today want you to have a positive experience while giving birth. My sister had an epidural with all of her pregnancies, and though she screamed a little at the crowning, she got through it just fine. One of my cousins had a water birth and swears by them. Another used hypnotism.

I think that part of the fun would be deciding on which you are most comfortable with and which you would like to try out.

Hi I had a natural labour (25 hours) 19 hours I just had gas and air but then I had an epidural and it was heaven. I recommend an epidural to anyone who has a low pain threshold like me. Why suffer in pain with a long labour when theres pain relief available?

You cant ask for a c section, c sections are for medical purposes only.

Who said you have to have a natural birth? They have pain medication for a reason!

Actually you can request a c-section if that is what you opt for but its better to go natural.....

I had my daughter in 4 1/2 hours with no pain meds till after I pushed her out and then I got gas/ iv cause I hemmorraged and I was freaking out about them giving me needles after cause I just wanted to be left alone. Labor is painful but it isnt hard to explain till you actually go through it and find out what your pain threshold is im getting myself a shot of demerol this time and gas so I can live high and take the edge of lol its up to you (your choice)

best of luck!
