My Caesarean: Twenty-One Mothers on the C-Section Experience and After By Rachel Moritz Audiobook

Twenty-one vivid, moving essays on caesarean birth.

‘No one talks about C-sections as surgery,’ writes SooJin Pate. ‘They talk about it as if it’s just another way-albeit more convenient way-of giving birth.’ The twenty-one essays in My Caesarean add back to the conversation the missing voices of a vast, invisible sisterhood.

Robin Schoenthaler reflects: ‘A C-section for us meant life.’ And yet, women who don’t give birth vaginally-by choice or necessity-often feel stigmatized. ‘My son’s birth was not a test I needed to pass,’ writes Sara Bates. ‘As if growing a human inside another human for nine months then caring for it the rest of its life isn’t enough,’ adds Mary Pan, herself a physician.

Alongside their personal stories, the writers-decorated novelists, poets, and essayists-address the history of the C-section as well as its risks, social inequities, impact on the body, and psychological aftermath. My Caesarean is a heartfelt meditation, offering much-needed comfort through shared experience.
