This week we will be looking at cesarean births. What are they, who has them, how they work, when the evidence shows they save lives, when they are not necessary, and how they impact future pregnancies. How cesarean surgery happens: who does what? What can we expect? What are our choices, if we do have a cesarean? And how can cesarean surgery improve?
Keep an eye out this week for more posts on this topic! Have a specific question about cesareans? Or a personal experience? Share with us in the comments section~we will gladly repost cesarean birth stories if requested, and examine how the surgery itself saves lives, how it can negatively impact health outcomes, and how it can be improved. This is a topic close to our hearts, as women and advocates at Mothers of Change. Join the discussion!
