There’s no doubt whatsoever that cesareans save lives. However, the U.S.’s rate of cesarean is much too high. Lamaze International has crafted this infographic to help you reduce your risk.
Lamaze is a nonprofit organization that promotes a natural, healthy and safe approach to pregnancy, childbirth and early parenting. Knowing that pregnancy and childbirth can be demanding on a woman’s body and mind, Lamaze serves as a resource for information about what to expect and what choices are available during the childbearing years.
If you do deliver by cesarean, your doula will be with you after surgery to help you hold your baby skin-to-skin and to initiate breastfeeding.
