The term “homebirth cesarean” has only recently entered the birth world’s lexicon. The phrase, which refers to a planned out-of-hospital birth that leads to the hospital operating room, now represents new understanding and healing pathways for mothers, families, and birth professionals. In capturing more than 250 voices from around the birth world—from mothers and partners, to midwives, OB/GYNs, birth visionaries and more—”Homebirth Cesarean” sets a new benchmark for conversations, tools, and shared healing. “Homebirth Cesarean” is designed to follow a mother’s journey from pregnancy, through birth, beyond the postpartum year, and continues with the possibility and birth of some other child. This book shows the raw power of birth trauma from home to operating room to back home again, and reveals hopeful resolution pieces for mothers, partners, and birth professionals. This book brings deeper understanding to these unrecognized births, celebrates those transformed by them, and provides childbirth professionals with tools and information they want to improve families along their parenting journeys. “Homebirth Cesarean” is a perfect companion for birth professionals, educators, and therapists, along with mothers, partners, members of the family, or any person suffering from these births.
