April is cesarean awareness month. It’s a great time to talk about everything C-section!
Whether you’re having your first cesarean or your 4th, you may have a few butterflies in your stomach as you prepare for your upcoming birth. Some people find having a list of affirmations ready to say during times of nervousness or anxiety helps calm them.
Here are a few of our favorite affirmations for cesarean birth:
