Childbirth Education

Cesarean sections (C-sections) can be important and even lifesaving in some circumstances. However, studies have also found that overuse of C-sections may result in harm and poor outcomes for mothers and babies. Many C-sections can be avoided.

Having a C-section is major surgery. C-sections mean more chances for complications, like infections and heavy blood loss. They also take longer for mothers to heal.

Sometimes C-sections are needed. But some hospitals are quicker to perform C-sections than others, even when they could have been avoided.

We encourage you to educate yourself. Please view these videos and learn how you can reduce your chances of having a C-section unless it’s really needed.

Your voice matters. Let your doctor know that you only want a C-section if it’s absolutely necessary. By taking steps early, you can make a difference for you and your baby.
