Educating is NOT Shaming

I was never told that placenta previa was a common occurrence after a c-section for future pregnancies, or that I would have pain from scar tissue, or that secondary infertility was a risk. As I was wheeled in for my first c-section I was not informed that finding a VBAC supportive provider would be a challenge and only the most persistent person could overcome the obstacle. Or that many hospitals won’t even allow a mother to attempt a VBAC. Or that my baby was at risk for higher rates of adverse health effects in the future. No, as I was wheeled back for my non emergent, intervention created c-section I was simply told “it’s fine honey, we do these all the time, it’s standard"
