In brief: Needs discussion
If you are seeking an elective c section for your first pregnancy, you should know that the american college of obgyn advises against this.
However, you have the right with informed consent to choose this. You will need to research your physician as some will decline this. If you want a repeat c section, most physians are likely to honor your request after full discussion.
