Q&A: When is a C-Section Absolutely Necessary?
A cesarean section can be a lifesaving procedure for a mom or a baby. In a perfect world this surgery is only performed when absolutely necessary, meaning when it is safer for your baby to be born via cesarean, rather than to remain in your belly, or be born vaginally. The big question is, what determines whether a C-section is absolutely necessary? This episode addresses this question and gives you some tips on how you can be comfortable in knowing when a cesarean birth is necessary and when it is not. Show notes: http://pregnancypodcast.com/csection/ Thank you to Zahler for their support of this episode.

Balanced, educational and fun
I love Vanessa's focus on both evidence based medicine and practical real-world-mom tips. I like knowing what to discuss with my doctor and husband. She's the friend we all need, who's helpful but not pushy! Thank you!
