Many women naively think that a caesarean birth involves a small incision into the abdomen (the so-called bikini-cut) and the removal of the baby.
However, a caesarean birth involves major abdominal surgery through multiple layers of tissue. It is not a gentle process - not for the mother's body nor for the baby.
Just look at the instruments used in the procedure!
Be sure to have researched the risks of a caesarean birth as well as the risks and benefits of epidurals, spinal blocks and general aneasthetic thoroughly before you choose this option.
If you know in advance that a cesarean might be unavoidable, then share the first video below, The Natural Cesarean with your caregiver and discuss the possibilities of you and your baby having this kind of birth experience. It is by far more mother and baby-friendly than the second one.
If you planned a different type of birth and end up requiring a caesarean, don't feel that you failed. Sometimes plans have to change. A healthy mother and a healthy baby are the most wanted outcomes!
