Let's talk about what to expect post Cesarean Birth/ C-Section. Today we are going to talk about what to expect once the baby is born, what to expect in the recovery (PACU) room after the cesarean birth and what happens when you get in the postpartum room. I will also provide tips on how to deal with the pain as well as how to help yourself. And most importantly... how to help your baby build a healthy Microbiome.
Today I would love to share with you ways to prepare for a Cesarean Birth. Sometimes they are planned and sometimes they’re not. A cesarean is not something to be scared of but it is a procedure that you should be educated on no matter what because they do happen. Knowledge is power. And the more you understand… the better prepared you can be. And the more you can participate, the better off you’ll feel.
Can I just say....I love TED Talks! I wanted to share 13 of my favorite Ted Talks about childbirth and pregnancy. I am a believer that information is power and Ted Talks allows you to learn from experts in the comfort of your home while in sweats. LOL.... I do not know if you are in sweats but I am as I write this blog post. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have.
Have you ever wondered what an amniotic sac looks like? The first time I saw a baby being born, I was 12 years old. I was my mom's doula before I even knew what that meant. I remember being totally amazed by the whole process and the best part was that I was going to "catch" my baby sister. Don't worry, a doctor was there facilitating everything.
Q & A time! I’m 35 weeks pregnant and would like to know… What are the recovery must haves for a mom who just gave birth? Cesarean or a Vaginal birth. I wanna be prepared so I can make my postpartum recovery as easy as possible! Great Question! Because this is such an awesome question I decided to ask a bunch of experienced moms their must have list and here is what they had to say!
In honor of my client who just gave birth to a healthy baby boy, I dedicate this blog to her. Aaaaaaand, I’m glad you're checking this out cause it’s so important. So many expecting moms are crazy focused on getting ready for the baby, the birth and hospital visit etc., that they totally forget or aren’t aware that they’ll need a postpartum wellness kit for themselves. Having your personal postpartum wellness kit ready after the birth is something you’ll be glad you have.
Lots of expecting moms feel fearful, anxious and nervous about childbirth
There are many factors that can lead to these feelings. But the 3 main ones are:
- Not knowing what to expect during childbirth.
- Listening to bad - horrible labor stories.
- Watching movies and TV shows portraying childbirth.
