Cesarean births are beautiful, rewarding, exciting, and joyful. Although it occurs in an operating room instead of a labor room, it's a birth experience.... a birth of a baby and a birth of  new parents. You should prepare for this major occurence in your life.

Do you know about the option of Gentle Cesareans? During these births the Obstetricians take the time and "walk" the baby out of the abdomen for two benefits: 1. If the mother wants to watch her baby being born, she can. 2. The baby gets a full squeeze allowing more release of amniotic fluid from the lungs resulting in clear breaths and stronger cries. Isn't that amazing! Join me as I discuss all the ways to keep yourself safe during and after a cesarean, what to expect in the operating room, anesthesia options and recovery tips and tricks.

In this Workshop You'll Learn:

  • Expectations for Planned and Unplanned Cesareans including Births of Multiples

  • Home Preparation for Superior Surgical Recovery

  • The Cesarean Process including Anesthesia Options. Understanding options available to you makes discussion of birth options with the Obstetrician and creating a birth plan  easier for parents

  • How to incorporate some the elements of a vaginal birth in your experience such as delay cord clamping, early skin to skin, and initiation of breastfeeding in OR.

  • Traditional and Non-traditional methods of healing after a Cesarean while caring for a baby or multiples.

In This Class You'll Learn:

  • Reasons for Planned and Unplanned Cesareans
  • Birth Affirmations 
  • Tips to Cope with Swelling and Gas After Surgery
  • Scar Healing
  • Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)
  • Emotional Recovery
