April is Cesarean Awareness Month

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Many mothers choose elective cesareans for a variety of reasons and many, like me, are faced with emergency ones.  I planned and educated myself with regards to natural childbirth, but I was caught completely unaware with my feelings after my c-section.  While I would never, in a million years, have done things differently because I know, without a doubt, that a surgical delivery was the best-case-scenario for our situation, I still ponder what happened and how things could have been different.

My son who was born 31 years ago was a c-section. It had to be done, he was sunnyside up! Then my daughter 2 1/2 years later was also a c-section because I had the belly button down cut which isn't good for a normal delivery. Sometimes it must be done.
