Our expert says:
There is no reason why your labour should be complicated because you have not had a child for a long time. If you are scared of pain, you could ask for an epidural. Reasons for caesarean section include the baby being too big, lying in the wrong position, fetal distress, etc. Many doctors will not do caesareans if there is no medical indication, as the risks to you are increased.
