New Resource: What Every Pregnant Woman Needs to Know About Cesarean Section

Childbirth Connection has published a new mother and family-friendly resource that speaks in detail about cesarean section. The free resource guide talks about the current statistics, the possible benefits and harms, how to make informed decisions, how to help prevent a cesarean, and provides realistic information on what it’s like to have a c-section, including the particulars during birth and postpartum recovery.

If you are pregnant, I encourage you to read through this informative, easy-to-read, and helpful guide. Many pregnant women do not want to think about the possibility of having a c-section, but it’s important for everyone to know about and understand the procedure.
