Cesarean awareness

I know its the last day of April but I just wanted to let everybody know that April is Cesarean Awareness month. Im sure at least one person you know has had a cesarean. It is not anything I would wish any person to have to go through....and I've had to go through 4! Mine were definitely unnecesareans. We as women need to take a stand and change the way the birthing system in the US works. Let's make birthing options better for our daughters. A woman should have a say in her birthing experience and not be pressured by the doctors to have a cs. Let's hope that this society will stop being so hungry for money and put a woman and childs health and well being first.

It is sad. I recommend for any pregnant woman to watch "pregnant in America". It will really open your eyes to the way the birthing system in the US works. So many c sections are unnecessary. But the doctors get 10 times as much money to perform a c section and it's on a schedule so we don't interfer with their busy lives. Plus it takes about an hour to perform as opposed to labor which can go on for days. They will even threaten with calling cps for endangering harm to your unborn if you go against medical advice of a cs, or repeat cs in my case. They really did this to me. So yeah, I am very much for the awareness of the severity of unnecesareans

yes, there are circumstances where its necessary but in most cases its not necessary. Things like "the baby is gonna be big. Better cut her open instead" The accuracy of weight and height during a sonogram is not accurate at all. They told me my 2nd born was gonna be over 10 pounds! She came out 7. Or they will tell a woman her pelvis is too small or that because shes past her due date a cs is necessary. NOT TRUE!!!! Watch "pregnant in America". You wont believe the things you will learn

    I've known people who prefer cs and to each their own but I speak from experience that it gets harder after every one. Plus it's major surgery and the risks far outweigh the benefits. plus having c sections limits the # of kids you can have. Most doctors won't give you care after 4 cs. I'm not trying to say your opinion is wrong. Just trying to shed light.
