Dear both are pain full but in natural delivery you will only have pain at the time of given birth but in c section you will get pain after operation. 


True that nI was Ceasarian and my baby is now 8mnth old ni still feel pain whenever my abdomen is being pressed on the kitchen counter while im washing dishes in our sink

Definitely would go with natural birth, less complications and you get better faster.

Honestly it’s good to have a plan, a plan b, c, etc. Hahhaa. It all depends on what you’re most comfortable with. If you plan on getting an epidural, vaginal birth is not that painful. You get medicated for a c section and I heard it’s not painful, but very painful recovering. I’ve heard natural is extremely painful, but once the baby is here, you kind of forget about it all :) 


I had an epidural both times with my two boys and I was able to push well. I felt enough and the pain wasn’t there, so I was able to enjoy the entire birth. It depends on what each mom wants out of the birth.

Hi! I prefer natural birth, it's painful at that time, but after you will feel very good. I'm not agree with epidural Because will be very hard for you to push the baby.

Vaginal birth has a faster healing time then c section. And has a lower risk of complications during delivery!

There is going to be pain. You can't really avoid it. If you push, it will hurt right then and there, but you will heal much faster than a csection. A csection has a healing time of 6 weeks, so you need to consider whether or not you have someone to help you for 6 weeks. 

I have delivered vaginally twice, and while yes, it was painful, I was so amazed that my body could do that. I would have no fears doing it again and again. It was such a powerful and emotional moment.

C section is a surgery and with any surgery come increased complications. If you have another pregnancy you have even more increased risk. C sections are meant to be used if a natural birth cannot be successful. 

Contractions were painful until I had an epidural. After that I had no pain. After my delivery I put ice packs between my legs and used the hemroid spray to numb for a couple days. I was back to normal pretty fast. My ankles became swollen and my hips felt weird for a while, but very little pain. Mostly just very tired. Like deliriously hallicinatingly tired.

Hi Guadalupe,

I did a natural birth and I felt everything. Not to scare you or anything but it's not going to be "easy" either way. There are pros and cons to both options. It's going to come down to what you feel most comfortable with. Try not to stress but i'd suggest you figure out a birth plan. It's so important to know what you're going to do. 

And by the way, giving birth is a breeze compared to how difficult actual motherhood is! Message me if you have any questions!

It depends on when you want your pain, to be honest. Natural is very painful during the actual birth, but afterwards you completely forget the pain. C sections are painful during the healing process. If I was you, I would just plan for an epidural if you can.
