Childbirth Educational Videos
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
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.
