Humanizing Cesarean Birth

As much as we would like to see Cesarean birth rates decline, there will still be moms and babies who need a Cesarean to make it safely through childbirth.

It is possible to create a more personalized, human, and family centered experience. I hope that this will one day become the norm for Cesarean birth in our society. That can only happen through advocacy and women asking for what it is they want for their births, their bodies, and their babies.

You will notice in this video there is no screen separating mom from the birth so that she can watch her baby emerge. The baby is birthed slowly and passed to the mother for immediate skin on skin. He clamping of the cord is delayed so that the baby can gain as much of its blood black from the placenta and stay oxygenated.
