You're usually not planning on it. In fact, on your first one, you’ve got a plan for something very much the opposite. Here’s what it looks like when you move from one birthing scenario to the other.

This mother-to-be from Loveland, CO found herself in the delivery room after her water broke 1 month early. As labor progressed, the baby’s heart rate started to drop. The umbilical chord was wrapped around his neck and body. It was time for a C-section. A short time later they welcomed little baby Jayden to the world safe and sound.

In addition to her husband, her sister and brother-in-law were along for the ride. Her brother-in-law Marcus, also an amazing photographer, beautifully captured the whole experience from start to finish.

Debate: Are Elective C-sections Anyone's Business

"Yes," by Nola Hamilton: The most basic reason that it's my business that the rate of elective C-sections is rising is that I have a stake in other mothers' and other children's lives.... "No," by Marlee Ryson: I can no more imagine butting into another woman's birthing choices than I can imagine asking to borrow her diaphragm....
