The Natural Cesarean

I came across this video, entitled “The Natural Cesarean: A Woman Centered Approach.” It discusses a family-centered cesarean to promote a gentle c-section birth, early bonding and skin-to-skin, delayed clamping, and involving the mother in care decisions as much as possible. It involves the father, and includes midwifery care even in a c-section.

Moms, consider including some of these options in your birth plan in case of cesarean! If it is not an emergency, you may be surprised at how much the doctors are willing to work with you on some of these wishes.

“It’s important that with each cesarean section that you make that cesarean section special for the parents, because it’s their only cesarean section, their only child that’s being delivered. And whichever way you do it, as long as you think carefully about how to make it work for the parents, then it will be time well spent.” -Dr. Gary Stocks, Anesthetist featured in video.

Enjoy this beautiful birth!
