Reporter Seeks Women with Accounts of Maternal Mortality & C-Sections

From Gretchen Humphries, International Cesarean Awareness Network's Advocacy Director:


I have been contacted by a reporter who is doing a story on maternal mortality. He would like to speak with women who suffered a serious or life-threatening complication related to a cesarean surgery. If you or someone you know experienced such a complication (it doesn’t have to be related to malpractice, a mistake, nor does the cesarean have to be either necessary or unnecessary) and you would be willing to speak to a reporter, please contact me as soon as possible. Please feel free to distribute this request to other email lists or forums.

Gretchen Humphries
Advocacy Director, ICAN

Gah!! I literally JUST read a story about a woman who got a life threatening infection directly caused by her c-section, and now she might lose her uterus. Oh, she's like 22 too. Infuriating. I cannot remember where I read it, but I'm almost positive it was on one of the blogs I follow. I'm going to keep a link to this handy so if I find that blog I can point her in this direction.

I read about post-surgical infection quite a bit. There are waayyy worse section infection stories than that, unfortunately. =( Just makes one hope that the surgeries that resulted in nosocomial infections were the really necessary ones so no one has to live with the doubt that the ends might not have justified the means. I hope the woman you read about finds a really good specialist that can save her parts.
