[From "Using General Anesthesia During C-Sections is Bad for Women’s Minds, According to Researchers"]
Painful experiences trigger a strong bonding mechanism in women, which is one of the reasons why they very rarely try to leave men who physically abuse them.
General anesthesia during C-sections literally takes away their first and most important chance at bonding with their child and turns them into little more than mindless womb-bags.
Women who have general anesthesia during C-sections are significantly more likely to experience postpartum depression resulting in hospitalization, suicidal thoughts, self-harm and anxiety, according to recent study.
This may be because general anesthesia during C-section deliveries can delay skin-to-skin interaction or breastfeeding from mother to infant, and can cause more acute postpartum pain.
Or it can be because deep down they know they missed a critically important chance to redeem themselves.

Women need to experience pain during childbirth to redeem themselves.
If for some natural or unnatural reason they don’t, then they need the crap beaten out of them just to put them on the safe side of redemption.
It is important that women don’t enjoy this kind of pain, so just to be very clear here: we’re not talking about the BDSM stuff that women love.
We’re talking about actual brutal beatings.
But I mean, it’s illegal, so if women don’t experience excruciating pain during childbirth, they’ll have to figure out another way to redeem themselves on their own.
Regional anesthesia at least allows women to be conscious during the process and observe what’s happening to their bodies, but it should still be avoided because it still takes away their chance to redeem themselves.
General anesthesia is usually used in emergency C-sections or in instances when regional anesthesia cannot be utilized, said says Grace Lim, director of obstetric anesthesiology at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital in Pittsburgh.
Lim says the emergency C-sections, which are more likely used for babies who are early or ill, or for mother’s with health problems, could also explain the increase in PPD.
She told CNN: ‘Thus, the nature of the emergency delivery, rather than the general anesthetic itself, may be the real reason why these women end up with higher odds of depression.’
It could be.
Or it could be that knowing that they’re going to Hell depresses them.
