Description - Cesarean Section by Michele C. Moore
Caesarean section is often seen as an unnecessary medical intervention or even as a personal failure for a woman. Though one in four babies born in the United States and Europe comes into the world with the help of surgery, this option is often feared by expectant mothers. In this book, women's health specialists Drs Michele Moore and Caroline de Costa emphasize the joy of delivering a healthy baby, however that is best achieved. They explain why Caesarean births are sometimes preferable to vaginal delivery for both mother and baby, and they help women understand the issues behind the decision to perform the procedure. From anaesthesia, surgery and recovery through at-home care of mother and child, the authors offer reassurance and practical information for all mothers and mothers-to-be. They also discuss the research findings on post-partum depression and planning for future births, including the possibility of vaginal birth after a Caesarean section. For every woman who has a planned - or unplanned - Caesarean section, this book provides the information needed to alleviate fear and instead value this delivery option.
