This article says that choosing a repeat c-section rather than attempting to deliver vaginally can be harmful to baby. (I think going within ten miles of any hospital during childbirth — unless something is going wrong — is harmful to babies.) Yet, lots of doctors will not even let women who’ve had c-sections try to deliver. It’s so frustrating that pregnancy is treated as an illness or condition that has to be monitored by a doctor. Of course some of the time a doctor is needed; but I think it far more common that doctors meddle where they should not and just create problems.
