Description

The downloadable PDF eBook is written by Midwife Leonie Rastas, it outlines preparation, recovery, and complications after c-section. The early weeks at home and postpartum management of the wound and possible challenges are also covered in this 24-page eBook.

This will endeavour to empower women with knowledge and strategies for both mother and partner or support person. I hope it will help women achieve the best possible outcomes for their caesarean birth and the postpartum period.

Caesarean rates are increasing worldwide and although this booklet is designed for planned caesarean births it is equally applicable for emergency caesarean sections.

      The eBook from Caesarcare was really helpful after I had my twins by C-section. The chapter on post-op recovery gave me some great tips for managing my pain and supporting my stitches. It was good to read about the early weeks at home also.

      I have had x4 C-Sections and the information in this wonderful book would have been just so helpful at the time.
      Leonie is so thorough and I can’t think of an area she doesn’t cover. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is pregnant or even to buy as a gift for expecting mothers.

      THANKYOU Leonie for your wonderful eBook Women Centred Caesarean Care.
      My two sons were born by Caesarean section. I regretted not knowing enough about the surgery and post care. Everything was trial and error.
      Many years later I am keen to see women supported by accurate information and good mental preparation.
      For many women this is their first experience of surgery. Your eBook removes unnecessary anxiety and empowers women and men to remain confident and happy at this unique and meaningful time.

      This was such a helpful resource for my daughter anticipating her caesarian birth. She found the tips for planning for hospital and returning home so helpful. It was such an asset in approaching surgery as it was important information given in a calming and supportive way. It helped her understand what to expect and helped her to formulate questions for her doctor. She also used the splint during her recovery and found it very helpful at a time when she was having to hold her baby for long periods. This is an excellent resource for anyone anticipating a caesarian and is highly recommended.

      I love how practicable, uncomplicated and innovative Leonie’s eBook is. Whilst I found the whole content very helpful, I found the “scheduled day of birth” section the most useful as she informed me of a lot of the things that I was “wondering about” ahead of the big day, and I hadn’t been able to source such info anywhere else. Leonie’s knowledge and experience gained over decades of work in the maternity wards and academia shines through at every juncture. Highly recommend!
