Caesar or Natural Birth
I would like to know what the advantages and disadvantages of a caesar and natural birth. I am not keen on natural as the whole idea of pyshing a baby out of me does not appeal to me.

Does one lose the weight quicker after a natural birth oor cesar. If i choose a ceasar now, can I then have my second baby naturally?

How long does it take for the scar to heal?

Which is the healthier option for a women and her child.

Please check the archives for previous answers to this question. You would probably lose weight faster after a natural birth. There is a higher risk of another caesarean after one has been done. This is just a risk though, not an absolute.
Scars take about 6 weeks to heal completely.
