Obviously natural, if there is no medical reason you can't give birth why would you want to go through with a major operation that could put you and your baby at risk.

I've had a c-section with my first and a scheduled one with these twins and I don't feel like I'm being robbed of an experience. Some women do prefer c-section based on experience. I had a great experience, was up the next day walking (obviously took it easy) but I had minimal pain and scarring.

I'd honesty never choose a vaginal delivery.

I didn't think it was a choice. I thought you only got a c section if it's medically necessary and/or some kind of emergency situation. I've never heard of anyone choosing between one or the other unless they were trying to go for a VBAC.

I think every child should be born natural unless there is threat of life. Why mess with what God has made unless you absolutely are going to save someone.

They both come with their own set up of pain from what I have seen. Natural birth hurts worse at first but healing and recovery and are usually fairly quick. Cesarean you will more than likely be knocked out but when you awake pain will come over you and it takes a long time to get back to normal. God bless women!!!!

Most women would choose natural over getting cut as long as they can have their drugs.

Natural all the way. Children just seem more aware earlier when they are born naturally with no drugs what so ever. Cesarean will always cause the mother to be in danger.

Celebrity babies are big business. They and their stylishly pregnant mothers who precede them set trends, which is why the much heralded arrival of Blue Ivy Carter, Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter, has ignited a firestorm on the very intimate details of how babies are born.

Millions of Americans with severe allergies rely on their EpiPens. When an allergic reaction leads to anaphylactic shock, a shot of epinephrine can literally be the difference between life and death. But now, just as parents are about to send kids with severe food and insect allergies back to school, the EpiPen's manufacturer is hiking its price to an all-time high,

That is not true. If you have a few dollars you will more than likely got with the cut. You can get surgery and be back to your old body in a few weeks. This is done in hollywood all the time.

Babies can enter this world in one of two ways: Pregnant women can have either a vaginal birth or a surgical delivery by Caesarean section, but the ultimate goal is to safely give birth to a healthy baby. In some cases, C-sections are planned because of medical reasons that make a vaginal birth risky

Having given birth naturally twice now, I definitely get how some women would pay to have a C section instead. Not only is natural labor overwhelmingly hard, there's no telling how long the contractions will last and how long you will have to push (and by"you" I mean mothers, not men ;) ).
I did very much want to experience labor naturally, as I wanted to know I could do it. And I always wondered what it was like. During labor thoughts cross my mind of never wanting to have more kids because of the pain and stress I'm under. But after... I forget the pain. It's a vague memory now. And I can't wait to be pregnant again!
I've heard C sections do take longer to heal, but at the same time, a vaginal tear could also take a while as well. So, I definitely think natural is better, but I'm not going to say it's easier. :) Just my experience/thoughts.

God bless you and your little ones. Bringing them into this world is never going to be easy for women and that is why we must thank them everyday for sacrificing their body to further humanity. Thank you for doing your part.

I have had one child and gave birth naturally. I wanted no drugs but after 36 hours they had to induce my labor and give me an epidural. I tried to fight it and go against their suggestion but they were losing my sons heartbeat and I was having trouble breathing. They talked to my husband and he finally talked me into it. I don't know how these women did it in the old days without the technology we have now. Kudos to those women.

Thank you Davit K. ... It's rare to hear encouragement like that.
The sacrifice is WELL worth it. Being a woman is great, IMO!
A favorite quote of mine:"You should not spend your days trying to preserve your body in its eighteen-year-old form. Let it be used. By the time you die, you want to have a very dinged and dinted body... Scars and stretch marks and muffin tops are all part of your kingdom work. One of the greatest testimonies Christian women can have in our world today is the testimony of giving your body to another." Rachel Jankovic
