I did not have one with my first, but I had a horrific vaginal delivery....so bad I am having a c section for my second. All of my friends have had sections, none had complaints other than my friend whose first one was a total emergency and they had to knock her out. Hope it helps to know that not everyone has a sunshine and roses vaginal delivery.
My second one was pretty decent. It was scheduled. They sewed me up and put my son right on my chest and put us in recovery together where I spend an hour doing a breast crawl which was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
