Leigh East shared a quote
“Research clearly shows that being better informed gives women an important feeling of control and this feeling of control plays a major role in how we experience the birth and how we view it after the fact." BubHub Feb 2019

"Whether you are planning to have a caesarean or attempting to avoid one you have rights. Knowing what these are can significantly alter the way you give birth and your experience in general." csections blog 2016

"...one in four women will have a caesarean whether they want one or not. Women who make a positive choice to have a caesarean and remove the risk of an emergency caesarean stand a far better chance of a positive recovery..." Sunday Times 8th Sept 2011”
