I note there have been no replies to this topic, and I might be a bit late as I'm aware it was posted in March but I will add my 2p in case it helps anyone else
I had my second child in November 2011 via elective section. Due to issues with healing after my first child, I required surgery and was told I'd not be able to give birth naturally. I did end up in a bit of an argument with the Obs & Gynae consultant when I told them this last year as it'd never been documented
Anyway - having HMS and having given birth both ways, I would suggest you go with the natural option. Healing wasn't great for me either time but I recovered way quicker after the vaginal birth than I did the section. I was in absolute agony following the section and was only able to walk normally after a month. I was still getting regular pain in my lower abdomen up until a few months ago and even now I get the odd twinge. Labour and birth was pretty tough going the first time and I needed all manner of intervention but for allowing my body to recover afterwards, then I'd take the "natural option" if it was available to me, every time. If you want to chat in greater detail about this then feel free to reply here, or drop me a PM.
