The C-section Birth Experience

By Lindsay Ekstrom, RN St. Luke’s Birthing Center

Moms-to-be often have a vision of the birth they’re hoping to have. However when circumstances change, mothers may worry that they’ll miss out on a vital part of the birthing experience. This can especially be true of a C-section delivery.

At St. Luke’s, we work with our C-section patients to ensure that both mother and baby receive the same care as a vaginal birth. This includes the important skin-to-skin time right after delivery that is so crucial to bonding.

Hear from Lindsay Ekstrom, RN at St. Luke’s Birthing Center, about her experience delivering both of her daughters by C-sections at St. Luke’s.

St. Luke’s Birthing Center is located in Duluth, MN, with St. Luke’s clinics in the surrounding region, including Superior, WI. To schedule a tour of St. Luke’s Birthing Center, call 218.249.5605.
