Thousands of Caring for Yourself, A Guide to Self-care After Cesarean Birth booklets are purchased in English and Spanish each year by hospitals and pediatricians across the U.S. to give to new moms. It is used in childbirth preparation classes by many hospitals, churches, and childbirth educators. Because hospital and health care budgets are shrinking, Media Partners has decided to make the information available online. We hope it helps with tight education budgets!
