Caesareans for Convenience

Laura at Natural Family News comments on the rise in "patient-choice" c-sections with this great quote:
Babies are not convenient creatures. They want to eat at all sorts of inconvenient times, have messy accidents, and sleep at irregular intervals. If you can’t be bothered by waiting for your body to go into labor, that’s not a good sign that you’re ready to raise a child.
Owch. How true.

I hadn't read that, but it sure says a lot! (Brittney Spears comes to mind, along w/ many other celebs)
Doesn't being a parent mean a lot of putting yourself last? It's supposed to be that way! I wish more people understood this.
