Cesarean Stories:
Share Yours, Read Others

Every cesarean is different, each has a story. By sharing your stories with others, you can help fill out the cesarean-picture for moms who see that possibility in their future.

If you're here to hear about the experiences of cesarean moms, click here to go straight to the stories.

Having never had a cesarean (thus far), I've relied on the stories of others to build up these articles and help educate me on how to encourage my friends who are facing this in their future, or are recovering from it in their past.

Every Cesaren Birth Has a Story...Share Yours!

Was it easier than you thought? Harder? What surprised you? What helped your recovery? What hurt it?

Sharing your experience will help prepare other mothers as they face an upcoming c-section.
