The Unnecesarean

The Unnecesarean is a patient advocacy Web site that pulls back the curtain on the practice of prophylactic cesarean surgery for suspected fetal macrosomia and illuminates the experiences of women who have been harmed by the aggressive practice of defensive medicine. The site provides information about preventing an unnecessary cesarean and resources for making fully-informed decisions about childbirth while offering an irreverent take on the maternity care crisis in the United States and beyond. The Unnecesarean is written from the perspective of a former patient that refused a coercive recommendation of an unnecessary cesarean, gave birth vaginally to a healthy baby and later found that the Midwives Model of Care better met her needs as a pregnant woman.
