One of the reasons that having a c=section was so distressing for me is that I was so unprepared for it. In fact the other day I tweeted that if I were asked for three words to describe my c-section they would be un pre pared.
But I just interviewed an M.D. and a c-section birth doula (who knew they even existed?!) and I learned so much great information that can help reduce some of the stress.
The slide show is up today on iVillage!
The bottom line: even if your c-section is scheduled for a few days from now — and as long as you’re not on bed rest! — there are a bunch of things you can do to get ready for the experience.
When did you learn you were having a c-section? Did you do anything to prepare for it?
