Yes I have heard that. I am talking twenty six years ago though I wanted a natural birth I had to have an epidural which I really did not want but it was just in case anything went wrong.
A c-section just never appealed to me and I did state that I wanted to have a natural birth. I just never fancied having my stomach cut open as a c-section is a major operation and I do feel that too many of these operations are performed when they don't really need to be. that's just my opinion.
Hope everything goes well for your daughter.
I had a breech birth 38 years ago and had no choice but to give birth normally as it wasn't standard in those days to give a caesarian for a breech. It's just as well my daughter wasn't a huge baby. I was a breech birth too in 1955 - again, no caesarians then.
