Here is a nice short c section video to add to our childbirth video library. It is very clear from this c section video that a cesarean section is not simple or painless. It is major abdominal surgery. Just because the mother is anesthetized, does not mean she will not suffer after the surgery.

Note: This entry has been edited because numerous mothers who have had or are planning cesareans found it offensive. While we find the cesarean rate to be deplorable, we blame the medical industry who is capitalizing on the trust and fear of women. We do not in any way blame the mother or think that a cesarean makes you “less of a mother”. If anything, we believe that women who experience an unnecessary cesarean are victims (whether they realize it or not). That said, we do not want to add to the pain and suffering of victims and are not in the business of causing pain, rather we want to educate women so they know that homebirth is the best place to be if you want to avoid a cesarean in the first place (or second place or third place). Peace to all birthing women and mothers everywhere.
