Cesarean Section

Video: Cesarean Section Part 1

April is cesarean awareness month so to do my part I decided to only post cesarean section videos for the rest of the month rather than the feel good, warm and fuzzy home birth videos.

Many women in America and around the world are currently under the impression that cesarean sections are somehow cleaner, neater, easier and more civilized. While they can save the lives of women and babies in rare, extreme circumstances, by and large they are unnecessary and overused either to prevent a lawsuit, to fix the damage caused by other interventions or worst of all, for convenience sake.

Hopefully this video, which shows a cesarean in graphic detail will put to rest the notion that a cesarean is better. It is an unnatural start for both mother and baby and women who think for themselves avoid them at all costs.

  1. I am about to have my third baby. In my last birth I had some very serious complications and all the doctors and midwives I have spoken to say I need a Caesarian this time. I am horrified and terrified. It seems a horrifying thing to me and I don’t want it – but I really do have to. Have you ever thought of women like me? Your comments about caesarians fuel even more fear. Perhaps acknowledging these circumstances and positively giving some advice on how you survive this and actually bond with your baby would be helpful. Every site is the same. I know it will be horrifying and awful and I will probably fail to bond with my baby and get depressed. It just seems that is the view of all.

      @Annette:
      Thank you for writing. A post about bonding and preparing for a cesarean is an excellent idea. Much of the strong language on many of these sites comes from anger at having unnecessary cesareans or knowing how doctors are tricking women into having them. Please read “Pushed” by Jennifer Block and some books by Ina May Gaskin. I am not saying that yours is not necessary, but over 90% of cesareans in the US are.
