Library Journal - Library JournalA well-written and much-needed guide for pregnant women who might face a C section. The authors, a Cesarean mother and a gynecologist, address every aspect of this method of delivery, both physical and emotional, pointing out that a successful delivery is defined by a healthy mom and healthy baby, not by how that was achieved. Too many women feel like failures because they didn't have a ``normal'' delivery. This book dispels the myths surrounding C sections giving encouragement, tips for coaches, advice on caring for your body after the surgery, and generally informing readers about a subject that is usually treated peripherally in pregnancy handbooks. It may be news to some that many women who have delivered both vaginally and by C section prefer surgery! Recommended.--Anne Washburn, Smith Helms Mulliss & Moore Lib., Greensboro, N.C.

Recovering from a "C" Section based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
It's horrible if you are looking for emotional recovery. Basically it tells you to forget it and move on. It also doesn't help to compare and tell you how much better you had it than other people. The post-partum exercise is helpful though.
