Creating A Positive C-Section Experience - The Caesarean Workshop

Here at Positive Birth Jersey, we feel SO passionately about birth being positive no matter what it looks like - whether that is a caesarean section, birth using an epidural or a water birth! In the U.K. and Jersey, around 25-30% of women with give birth by c-section. Sometimes, c-sections are recommended for the safety of mum and baby; women may also opt for a c-section if they feel it is the best type of birth for them. 

If you are planning an elective c-section, our private 3 hour Hypnobirthing for Caesarean course may be for you! It is so important that you feel informed, empowered, relaxed and READY for your c-section experience. You still have SO many choices when it comes to caesarean birth.
