Did you know that 1 in 4 women in Canada (1 in 3 in the U.S.) have a Cesarean?
The World Health Organization recommends a rate of no more than 10-15% for best outcomes for moms and babies, however the common routine practices and attitudes of our maternity care system AND the lack of education on our rights, options, and understanding of how physiological birth actually works has led to a Cascade of Interventions and cesarean rates in local hospitals are now as high as 50-80%!
In fact, some days it can be as high as 100% of births resulting in a Cesarean!
