Good news! Both forms are very safe. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence says that, overall, caesareans are no more risky than vaginal deliveries and vaginal are not more risky than caesareans. But if we compare the two, we face different risks. The risks of caesareans are related to having major surgery and there are longer recovery times and that can interfere with the initiation of breastfeeding. Women who have vaginal births have a slightly higher risk of internal injuries. The risk however in both cases is very small. So whatever you choose, Your Child will most probably be perfectly fine!
