Birthing Misconceptions


If I have a high-risk pregnancy, a cesarean is best

Some women with high-risk pregnancies are best delivered by cesarean birth for their health or the health of their baby. But there are many women with complicated pregnancies that are able to safely give birth to their baby vaginally. Every pregnancy is unique and the decision on when and how to deliver the baby should be made along with your primary caregiver, and an obstetrician, if necessary.
