I came across this cesarean birth video (55 minutes and very detailed!) that I thought was really good. The doctor explained why he was doing the procedures and types of sutures. Information I would want to know if an emergency c-section was needed.
"1.2 million c-sections performed every year making it the most common procedure in the United States." Late in the video the doctor stated that their c-section rate in 2000 was 12% and as of 6 months ago is was about 32%! What an increase in rates.
This is a funny Monty Python Birth Video that Sarah came across and sent the link to me. I am no Python fan... tried to watch the movie but only lasted maybe 10 minutes. But this is just hilarious! My favorite line is when the mother asks what she can do and the doctor answers "nothing dear, you are not qualified!"
Enjoy and hope no one is offended or gets sick from the cutting. I personally enjoy watching surgery videos!
