It’s Cesarean Awareness Month (CAM) 2010! Hope you’ve been following the daily birth stories on our blog so far. They will continue all the way through April 30th.
Several other bloggers have posted on CAM. The Feminist Breeder suggests ways to get involved in CAM, including a super cool Twibbon for your Facebook profile pic. Courtroom Mama summarizes the rise in cesareans in the U.S. and why we should care.
Also, in case you missed the story of doctors performing an induction and cesarean on a non-pregnant woman in North Carolina, read about it here and here on The Unnecessarian. While you’re there, check out a though-provoking post on why VBAC doesn’t make it all better.
