♥ Kathleen at Life With Four Boys asks the thought-provoking question, “Have C-sections Become a Means of Convenience for Busy Doctors?”
♥ Samantha of Mama Notes shares her thoughts on the controversial movie, “The Business of Being Born”. My favorite quote by Samantha? “I think it’s important to remember that it is possible to have a natural, drug free, amazing birth experience in a hospital. I can say this because it happened to me!”
♥ Here’s a short but sweet post by the mommy behind Pink Nothings, sharing her happiness with her scheduled C-section birth experience!
♥ Sometimes a C-section is just necessary, like in the case of this mommy who guest posted at Mama Dweeb. She gave birth via C-section to a 10 lb, 4 oz baby and is kind enough to share her C-Section Recovery Tips! I really hadn’t thought about many of the things she brings up, like nursing in a certain way hurting your incision. Go read it!
♥ Jess of My Silly Monkeys has had four C-sections! Despite the fact that getting a C-section is not the end of the world, it is major abdominal surgery and she does NOT recommend getting one unless it’s truly medically necessary – read her post and find out why! Also find out why she had a C-section when her first baby was born – never feel bad about questioning your doctor if things don’t sound quite right! Finally, she has some GREAT tips on recovering in this post. It’s really a terrific post, very worth reading if you think you may have a C-section someday (planned or not).
