In brief: Could be

Elective c-section adds the risks of surgery, anesthesia, blood transfusion, & wound healing to what may be an uncomplicated vaginal delivery.
Recovery is also harder for moms & i know it's unfair to women who have long painful labors & then end up with a c-section anyway. Review your concerns with your ob, if you had previous complications with vag delivery, many obs are willing to discuss it.
