A Closer Look at Cesareans
August 7, 2013 32 Comments
Approximately one third of all US births are c-sections, meaning many of my readers will have experienced at least one, and many more will someday experience one (myself possibly included). I am researching cesarean births in hopes of learning the events that lead to them, how to better prepare women for them (the surgery and the healing afterward), and maybe even prevent a few.
The following are some ideas I have for articles on cesareans. I would like to invite you to consider being a part of one (or more) of them.
Behind the Scenes of a Cesarean
This article will focus on the woman’s emotions as she is prepped for, and goes through, a cesarean.

This article will explore whether the mother felt her c-section was a true emergency, whether she thinks it was caused by choices she, and the medical staff, made, or if it was simply what would have happened, no matter the choices made.
Preparing for a Cesarean Birth
This article will be suggestions and encouragement, by women who have gone through it, for those who have yet to.
This will be a comparison post, highlighting different womens’ stories, and the types of events that led to their cesareans.

This article will be of practical tips from moms on how to best heal while taking care of the baby/babies.
If you would like to share your experience(s) with me, and possibly be included in one of the above posts, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will provide questions and prompts for you to answer.
Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you!
