Why You Shouldn’t Choose An Elective C-Section
There are more than just physical problems that newborns are at risk for when born via cesarean. There are potential psychological problems that will show up later in their life. However, many of these problems are often missed as something correlated to the birth. What the newborn experiences in the womb creates predispositions, expectations, and vulnerabilities in their future. If you knew this, would you still elect for an unnecessary cesarean?
Nurturing the Sacred Postpartum Space
We must understand that as the new mother is dealing with life transitions of birth she is as vulnerable as her newborn and needs special care and attention during the time of postpartum.
How to Have a Good VBAC
The World Health Organization Multicountry Survey (WHOMCS) collected data on pregnant women who had a previous cesarean in facilities across 29 countries. The incidence of uterine rupture was 0.5%, meaning out of 37,366 women, 170 experienced uterine rupture. Though the risk is low, there are some risk factors you should speak with your doctor about while you are deciding if a VBAC is right for you.
Hi, I'm Marya Eddaifi
I was only 22 when I had my son. It wasn't the best experience but I didn't know better.
It wasn’t until after I became a Labor and Delivery nurse did I realize how badly I was treated and grieved over my birth. Did I tell you this was 15 years later?
After realizing how nurses and medical providers impact such a huge life event, it became my mission to change the world through beautiful birth experiences!
