Planned C/S... they cause a lot of scrutiny and controversy. Personally I see no issue with them as long as the baby is at term. From what my Dr. told me C/S are more dangerous in the sense of it being surgery for the mother, it is actually less dangerous for the baby.
I remember a story of a woman who's husband was going to Iraq (at the peak of this war)and would be leaving a week before the baby was due. She wanted to have a planned C/S so at least her husband could see the baby in case the worst happened, and he ended up dying in this war. She did get a lot of support, but there were some people who insisted a baby's time to be born should not be planned, regardless of the circumstances.
You also hear about celebrities who "plan" when they have the baby to avoid pain, stretch marks, fear, whatever... they usually can get what they want, because they are celebrities. Personally, I think if you can pay for it, and the baby isn't at risk, I see no issue. I know many do, and I have always wondered why. Sure, its shallow...but will it hurt anyone except the mother who made that choice? I remember how fearful I was before my first son was born...who's to say I would not have done the same thing if I had the money? (I did end up having C/S's) I am not a Dr.. so I am not sure, I am just going by what my Dr. said about a term baby. I kind of feel like I should mind my own business before I stick my nose into others...but is that sticking my head in the sand?
