what is a better option, vaginal birth orna csection? does the vagina go back to normal after birth? what are the changes that happen?

It depends: In an uncomplicated pregnancy (healthy mother with normal anatomy and well developed stable fetus), vaginal delivery is ideal (this is how nature intended it to be!!). C-sections are necessary in some cases to preserve the health of both mother and baby, but this is still a significant surgery which should not be taken lightly.
