I'm not in agreement with the writer of the previous reviw. Waiting for my second child after a Csection 8 years ago I found it set out the options well - there are risks and advantages of trying for vaginal birth - if you dont succeed there are secial risks that the authors make clear. I like the way they use the stories to make their points. One of them has had two Csections, one emergency and one planned and her understanding shows. Silvia S.Was this review helpful?

Having already had one cesarean, I was looking for a book that might help guide me during my next pregnancy. Unfortunately, this book doesn't contain much advice for women like me who are trying to decide whether to schedule a repeat cesarean or try for a vaginal delivery.Was this review helpful?

This book explains how the surgery is performed and answered a lot of my questions. It does not adequately address options for cesarean moms wishing to have a second child or the risks involved in having a second pregancy. While the authors validate the cesarean experience, they ignored the emotional impact that it can have and the high risks of post-partum depression and traumatic stress. Still, given the number of cesareans peformed every year, it is a welcome resource.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I had a cesar for the birth of my son earlier this year, and felt really terrible, physically and emotionally - both of my sisters had their babies without needing any surgery, at the end of last year. I felt like I must have done something wrong, but the writers explained to me properly why I had needed it, how important it was for me and my little boy, and how common it really is. I thank them for their understanding and their gift for explanation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I flew through this book in a day and a half. I was looking for a book to explain more than the typical pregnancy book and this book was wonderful. It chips away at the stigma usually associated with a cesearean section allowing for an empowered experience.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
