Frequently Asked Questions

Why should women having a Caesarean birth invest in education and resources for their birth?

Current trends see women admitted on the day of surgery and discharged from hospital as early as 24 hours after birth. Many women have a longer hospital stay, however no matter how long the stay, understanding the healing process and taking on more responsibility for your recovery is vital. Caesarcare's C-section recovery packs contain medical aids and an eBook to support you through the healing period. See the Top 10 tips for safe healthcare outlined in Australian Safety & Quality in Healthcare's booklet.
