Sometimes supporters of natural birth can come across as unsupportive of women who birth another way. With so much emphasis on "natural" birth as the ideal, it's easy to forget how that can leave women feeling if they end up with an unexpected c-section, or if they never planned on unmedicated labor to begin with.
At Corvallis Proud Mama Support Services, we are different. We support all families and all births. We firmly believe that no birth is better than any other birth. Whether your c-section was planned in advance or was the end result of a natural labor, we've created a local forum on Facebook call "Corvallis C-section Group" for you where you can find support, encouragement, information, and resources without feeling like a value-judgement is being placed on the way you gave birth, or the way you feel about how your birth turned out.
You are welcome to join us.
From our client's feedback, we are also identifying other areas of support that are lacking in our local area. We'll be working to offer more support on those topics as well. Stay tuned for more resources coming soon.
