I have had six c-sections.  Seriously.

The first one was after laboring for sixteen hours, the second through fifth were scheduled, and the sixth was because I was having contractions.

In the past, cesareans have not been birth experiences for women, but doctor centered surgeries.

I want mothers, doctors, midwives, nurses and hospitals to make the most of c-sections by allowing protocol that completely change the atmosphere in the operating room.  I also want to help women make the most of their c-sections, before, during and after.

To that end… I have written an Ebook! Make the Most of Your C-Section: Prepare for a More Natural & Personalized Birth!

Who should read my book?  All pregnant women!  

  • Any woman preparing for her first c-section.
  • Any woman who is planning a natural birth.  Since any labor and delivery can end in a c-section (some studies say 34% of deliveries are c-sections, though that includes planned c-sections), it’s best to be prepared.  The suggestions in this wonderful book will help ensure even women who never dreamed they would have a c-section can create a personalized c-section!
  • Any woman who has had previous c-sections and wants a different birth experience in the operating room

Would you like your c-section to be a birth experience, not just a surgery?  Buy my book!

Read all about this wonderful book here! 

You can buy Make the Most of Your C-Section: Prepare for a More Natural & Personalized Birth for only $7.97.




 Also…

Read my series on Family Centered C-Sections here at Grateful for Grace.  You can read how different c-sections can be.  Share them with your doctor!  She can not doubt the words of those doing the procedures!

A Patient’s Story: Erin

A Nurse Director’s Story: Tina

A Midwife’s Story: Niessa

An OB’s Story: Liz

Read my personal testimonies about some of my c-sections:

A Take on My First C-Section

My Fifth C-Section

A Bit of My 6th C-Section

 

Read the series and read my book!  Make the most of your c-section in the way you want!  I’m cheering you on.  If I can help you advocate in any way, please contact me.

Just finished reading your book and have to say it was so good! My first baby was born in a military hospital and the experience was not much to be desired. After that the next three were safely, naturally, and beautifully born at home. After a fairly serious pelvic seperation with my last birth, being 35, and being 14 weeks pregnant and already experiencing pelvic pain, I just don’t feel peace with another home birth. After much prayer we are planning a hosipital birth. Knowing how my last birth went, I am fully preparing for a c-section. My labor was long and my baby was “sunny side up” and refused to turn”.
Your book helped me know what to expect, what questions to ask, and how to have a beautiful birth even with a c-section.

Thank you so much! I will be reading it again very soon and making notes this time to start preparing.

I’ve had three c-sections. I haven’t had a chance yet to read your book, but I know that here in the UK you can request a “natural Caesarean”

Although it depends on the hospital and medical team as to whether they would be able to do it, or not.

Yup, the UK set the trend on this, as far as I know. So grateful it did! :)

Just found your blog and so comforted by your story. We currently have 5 children ages 8, 6, 4, 2, and 5 months. All have been C-sections. My husband and I have really been praying about more children, but nervous due to my surgeries. God is so merciful though by allowing us to have so many children and allowing my uterus to stay strong. Thanks for sharing your story and comforting many! Blessings, Kelli from Florida
