Books/References for Scheduled c/s

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine has decided, after much deep and troubled thought, not to do a trial of labor but to schedule a second section. Her recovery from the last one was rough whereas mine was not. Neither of us expected it last time, so neither of us read-up on it.

This time, I'm offering to at least get her some references/information so that she can take a little bit of control over her experience.

Last time, her husband didn't stay with her (it never occurred to them) whereas my husband was with me the whole time. This time, her husband will be with her for the first two nights, and that will be a big help. Plus, he's taking more time off from work.

But I'm looking for other information --books, articles, etc.-- that she can use to empower herself to make this the best c-section experience she can have.

Thanks!

Hi fraya,

We're trying to host discussion of c/s as a topic to the I'm Pregnant board. So I'm moving your thread over there.

Best wishes to your friend!

"Birthing From Within" has a small section on what to do at a cesarean delivery (and how to make it as empowering as possible.)

And if I remember correctly, "The Pregnancy Book" from Dr. Sears has a section on recovery. I would doublecheck on that before buying it, though--my memory is fading!
