Does she even know who the baby daddy is? There are a lot of candidates.

Women don’t understand the naturalness and the pain of natural child birth, and they need to. God wouldn’t grant women the gift of bearing life if he didn’t think we could do it naturally. All other animals in the wild do it naturally, so why can’t we? Because it’s painful? BUCK UP!

My guess is she was told a vaginal birth would be very risky given her obesity.Such women are at higher risk for trouble and as a result c section is often chosen in advance.
If she gets pregnant again maybe she will take better care of herself, that’s gotta be miserable to be in her state
I had 3 very large babies naturally after 2 c sections and am not a big person at all. Part luck and part discipline :-)

She prob had a c-section because of the enormous weight of her baby. I was advised by my Dr during my 2nd pregnancy to have a c-section because my baby was going to be big. He was 9lbs 10oz & with my body shape & narrow hips, I would never have been able to deliver vaginally. They (& myself) did what was medically nessessary to deliver a healthy baby. My 3rd pregnancy, I opted for a scheduled c-section again because it worked out so much better for me during my 2nd pregnancy.

She’d still be in more pain after a c section than a natural birth. Doesn’t make sense lol how stars think. Her choice though but she missed out on the chance of doing something so special like giving birth the way nature intended.

I had my first child, a daughter naturally. My second child a boy was C Section. When my gyno asked me how I felt at my 6 week check-up, I said to him that I felt “robbed”. He said many women told him that!!. And yes I agree, having to heal after the C Section was much harder than natural birth.

There are many different reasons to have c sections and many different reasons to have vaginal births. Anyone can have a c section who wants one if you go to a doctor who supports letting the mother choose, Jessica did not have to pay her way into a c section. Some people handle pain in different ways and for some people the pain of a c section is easier to tolerate than the pain of a vaginal delivery and vis versa. In addition, it is not safe to deliver a 10 lb baby naturally if your body cannot handle it. I have seen multiple women have 4th degree lacerations (where they tear from the vagina through the rectum) who have to have multiple surgeries to correct the damage and years of stool leakage, fissures, and other complications. That is not healthy for anybody. In addition babies who are in the birth canal longer risk asphyxia and have a greater chance of ending up in the NICU with an infection. Bigger babies also have higher rates of moms having postpartum hemmhorages and needing emergency hysterectomies. I support both forms for different reasons and it is not okay to judge her based on what your birth was like. There are multiple different pelvis shapes and some of them cannot let a baby out. With medical advances it is safe for either type of delivery in different situations. I could go on and on with reasons for each. Both are safe and certain circumstances call for each type. Having a baby is not black and white.

If this baby is as big as Dr thinks, go for c-section. NOBODY has the right to judge her. If she wants to do what she and Dr’s think is best, let her. Everybody has an opinion and it will come down to what she wants. Leave her alone.

If your c-section was an emergency procedure and not elective, then it is an entirely different situation. She, and others like her (including me) is not an idiot for electing a birth process that sounds more appealing and less anxiety inducing than a vaginal birth. I elected a c-section for the same reasons – anxiety about labor and delivery (from the unknown pain and duration to having to potentially switch to an emergency c-section), and my pregnancies progressed much better for me without having the anxiety on top of everything else you worry about during pregnancy. Stop judging women who choose a c-section. We don’t judge you for wanting to try and go natural. Actually, yes we do – we think you are all idiots who want to do it without pain medication. And at home. In your bathtub.

Wow this comment reeks of insecurity! Women who cop out of vaginal birth with an elective c section often judge others defensively. If you are scared and can’t handle unmendicated labor then be a big girl and admit it!

You are clearly ignorant for your comment. It’s fine if you do not agree with her choice, but to condemn her for it just shows how little you know about people other than yourself. Just because you elected to subject yourself to a vaginal birth(s) doesn’t mean everyone who doesn’t is a “pussy.” Rather, given what a woman goes through after a c-section, and electing it means you voluntarily sign up for it, any woman who chooses the “easy” way of vaginal birth are “pussies” with now stretched-out pussies.

In some countries like Brazil(were I live) it is optional, I had a C-section, quick,painless delivery,afterwards you wear a girdle for a month to help with the stiches,it also helps to get your waste back. I only have one child,but If I had another one I would get a C-section again, women suffer anough ,why add any more pain?

She’s an IDIOT seriously I just had a c-section 3 days ago only after my body wouldn’t progress after 21 hrs of induced labor but I definitely would NOT elect to have a c-section if I didn’t have to bc I’m still in the hospital and can’t even carry my daughter in her carseat for 6 weeks, does she not realize that they cut you open???? geez grow up if you can be “adult” enough to get pregnant go threw the labor Geez woman do it daily

This is exactly what her sister Ashee did when she had her son a few years ago. Ashlee was also terrified of childbirth and scheduled an elective c-section.

And that is exactly what it is, your OPINION. In my opinion, an elective c-section is a great option. My opinion (and Jessica’s and any other woman who chooses this method of delivery) counts just as much as yours.

Women should really research the risks and benefits of elective major abdominal surgery. It is much riskier to both mother and baby to have a csection and can lead to lifelong complications for mothers and complicate successive pregnancies badly.
By the way, it is pregnancy, not vaginal birth that causes pelvic floor laxity (aka “stretched out pussy”) so do your reading and your Kegals ladies and u won’t have to worry about your “pussy” or losing urine or feces.
I swear women research their new cell phones an shop around for new purses more than they research birthing their child or shopping for a care provider. Ridiculous!
Why didn’t she just have an epidural to avoid pain!?

ummm..because she had an almost 10 pound baby, epidural isn’t gonna help a baby that size get through.

Congrats Jessica!

My baby was almost 9 pounds n wit the epidural I did great. I was also so scare of the pain n I got induced which was worse because once my water broke I couldn’t get a break from the contractions but as soon as I got the epidural I was good n had her fast.

It’s different for everyone. I don’t know how big your baby was, but after having had a nine pound baby vaginally and having third degree lacerations, plus hemorrhoids from H—, I thoroughly enjoyed my C-section for my eleven pound baby. I carried him much higher than my first baby,since he evidently didn’t have enough room to “drop”. I do not believe there was anyway I could have had him vaginally, plus it probably would have been dangerous. Cesareans are not “silly” choices, sometimes they are quite necessary. And NO, I did not gain a ton of weight–22 pounds with the nine pounder and only 20 with the eleven pounder. Didn’t take but a couple of weeks to lose the weight.
