I just read a great article by Mothering Ourselves that I wanted to share! Overweight women do face higher c-section rates than do those who are of average weight… how scary must that feel for an overweight woman! To be constantly worried about your weight before pregnancy to then have it bite you in the rear with the risks that go along with weight…. There are ways to empower yourself, read this article for the ideas one woman had to help an overweight mama.
Have a Cherished Birth no matter your weight!

My name is Samantha Mehaffey, I'm a wife and a mother of four. My husband served in the Military for 8 years and during that time I birthed two of my five children and served a few people as a volunteer doula, now he is working in the civilian world and we've added a third and fourth and fifth child (all born at home) and I've increased my business and gotten certified through DONA, and now I’m working toward becoming a midwife. I LOVE this job almost as much as I love raising my children. Bringing babies into the world through prayer and helpful relaxation techniques is the best feeling in the world!
