I think it is important for this to be seen. I've been invited to the other side of the curtain once and been in the OR twice with clients and it has really changed my perspective on what a big deal cesarean birth is. Lifesaving, yes. But for darn sure, the person performing the surgery should make sure it is absolutely necessary because it is a major procedure with many risks.

I have a photo like that--of myself. I try not to think about what's going on in the pic too hard!

And at the end of it, a healthy baby. Just remember: You have 24 hours or so of "birth experience" but an entire lifetime with that child.

I have recently been invited on the 'other side' of the curtain as well and found it insightful and humbling. Humbling that we have come so far in medical advancements to allow for such lifesaving advancements, and insightful as I have first hand experience, now, of how to educate women before birth and the fact that the wonderful doc gave me a mini anatomy lesson in real-time/real-body.
