About Us

I was amazed at the difficulty I had trying to find balanced information about caesareans when attempting to make informed decisions for my own birth plan in 2004.

Following the caesarean birth of my daughter I created this site in 2005 and since then have gone on to work with NICE on the Caesarean Section Guideline and written Caesarean Birth: A positive approach to preparation and recovery.

The site was significantly updated in June 2011 to reflect feedback received and enable posting.

The book, and therefore the static content of the site, have been thoroughly reviewed by a number of Professionals and I am confident the information is up-to-date and accurate.
