At Village Obstetrics in Manhattan, we are proud to offer Gentle Cesarean as our standard technique for all cases except urgent emergencies. Our experienced and meticulous doctors have championed the Gentle (or family-centered) C-Section at Mount Sinai, leading the way for more compassionate and patient-centered childbirth experiences.
Our Gentle Cesarean technique includes the use of clear drapes, allowing our patients to watch their baby being born and feel more in control of the process. We also offer a variety of options for a more comfortable and calming environment, such as background music and dimmed lights. With this approach, our patients report feeling more connected to their childbirth experience and more satisfied overall.
Additionally, our patients have the opportunity to bond with their newborn in the all-important first hour after birth, promoting a strong and healthy attachment. Our doctors prioritize the well-being of both the mother and the baby, ensuring a safe and successful delivery.
If you’re interested in a more gentle and personalized cesarean experience, schedule a consultation with Village Obstetrics today.
We take inspiration from our colleagues in England and Massachusetts, profiled in the following videos.
