Glad your daughter is ok
I also had a C-section, but nothing to do with my supposedly strong stomach muscles. I had an emergency one whilst unconscious as my son had got his cord wrapped round his neck.
As others have said, it is a major operation. I've not given birth naturally or even had contractions, so I'm not making a comparison between the two, but the idea that some people have that a section is easy, is not true.
I have friends who have had both and would take a vaginal birth over a c-section any day!
I have had two SVD's and abdominal surgery (unrelated to giving birth) but I can vouch that giving birth was easier to recover from. I too hate the phrase 'too posh to push'. I would bet those that use it haven't had a c-section.
