The truth about Cesareans, in video

This video combines pictures and text to express the emotional and physical toll a C-section takes on a woman. It is not just another way of giving birth. We are all glad that C-sections exist when the life or health of mother or baby is at risk, but we are in the middle of a C-section epidemic in this country, with no appearance of it slowing down. In fact, one hospital in Michigan, set to open in a few years, is being built with several more operating rooms than is the current norm, in anticipation of a 50% C-section rate. Many hospitals and doctors now will not allow a VBAC as an option. When a C-section is truly necessary, no one complains. When a mom has what she feels to be an unnecessary C-section, many times she is scarred emotionally as well as physically.
