MumofThree, the only 2 babies my child knows were born in hospitals via c-section. She herself is a preemie, emergency c-section. So that is my dd's world view. When her nanny was pregnant, dd horrified her by telling her that the doctors are going to cut her tummy open to take the baby out and she is going to be in terrible pain. Nanny had to explain that she was expecting a natural birth. When I came home, dd excitedly told me," mom, guess what? Not all babies have to be taken out of their mom's tummy. Some come out naturally."
