You may have longed and hoped for a natural birth, but fate had something else in store and an elective c-section has become the fabulous life-saving technology it was always intended to be! While you can be glad of this option to delivery your baby safely, you may mourn the loss of a powerful natural birth and some of the benefits it offers, such as immediate skin to skin and delayed cord clamping. How can you bring these special elements into an elective c-section?
