First, let me be clear that there is NO ROOM for us to shame or guilt anyone about C-Sections. Birth is birth. However your baby enters the world, I’m here to support!
Okay, let’s dive into the good stuff.
What is a C-Section?
A cesarean or c-section is a surgical delivery of a newborn through a series of 7 incisions through the abdomen and uterus.
C-sections can be a life saving surgery and sometimes the safest delivery method, but for low-risk pregnancies, c-sections actually pose greater risks to maternal health and life. Most pregnant people rightfully want to avoid them. The US levels for c-section are currently too high (about 32% of all births).
Did you know Doulas decrease the risk of cesarean by 39%?
