A gentle and positive caesarean birth # The Right Birth on the day

Cesarean sections(or belly births as I like to call themπŸ˜‰) are the most common types of surgeries performed on women in the United States.
.
In a traditional cesarean, the baby is delivered quickly, cord is immediately cut and baby is handed over to pediatricians. πŸ‘ˆπŸ» why haven’t we changed this type of traditional cesarean to be utilized only under emergent circumstances? This should not be the routine for anyone having a belly birth.
.
Most belly births are non-emergent and have the capability of being treated with gentleness and qualities that resemble a vaginal birth.
.
In a gentle cesarean, the head is delivered, then the baby is allowed to deliver its own body, slowly, allowing the longer squeeze to expel fluid from lungs. No tugging, no pulling. Baby should be placed immediately on mother for skin to skin contact, cord clamping delayed, and breastfeeding initiated.
.
Babies born via belly birth should have the same access to healthy practices and benefits as all other babies. Our health depends on it.
.
Even if you are not planning a cesarean, talking about a gentle cesarean with your provider is a good idea. Birth has its way of unfolding on its own and it’s smart to have a plan in place just in case.

The Wise Hippo Sussex    Hypnobirthing

Your choice to where you birth your baby is very individual. It is important to be aware of these choices. The options are a obstetrics-led hospital, like Princess Royal Hospital, locally we have been campaigning for a Midwifery led unit for a long while, however presently Crowbrough is the nearest one and these are their latest stats . East Surrey also has a midwifery led unit . There is also the choice of a home birth.
All of these options are discussed within my programme along with lots of advice regarding the birth environment.To help celebrate International Day of the Midwife, here are our statistics for April. We had 17 births in total at the unit and at home. Last April we had only 11, so we are chuffed that we are slowly but surely increasing our numbers 😊😊😊
