Death twice as likely by caesarean

This is something to think about. For all the celebrities that have their planned c-sections, for hospitals that aren't giving women a choice to have a VBAC. Babies should be born vaginally unless there really is a reason for a c-section. Even if you knew you needed a c-section it is best to wait until you go into labor and have the surgery, than have a planned c-section. Read this article written by Kate Benson

BABIES born by elective caesarean are almost 2½ times more likely to die within their first month than babies born vaginally, researchers have found, adding weight to the argument that caesareans should only be carried out in emergencies.
