Perhaps you think I think too highly of Childbirth Connection? Don’t. They freely offer a huge amount of evidence based pregnancy and childbirth information, and that makes them one of your best friends.
I am lucky to be in school, because the university supplies me with access to any research article in any journal I would like, and I can get most of them instantly. But if you are not in school, gaining access to research can be difficulty and costly. There is only so much you can get from an abstract at Pub Med.
This is why Childbirth Connection is so dear to my heart. They make the research accessible, and not only to me but to the families I work with. I know I can use their materials or give out their URL and trust ever bit of information the family will find. That is important to me.
So today, go and check out their free information about cesarean surgery. They have fabulous handouts and great research you’ll come back to again and again.
