    Topic: Have you or someone you know had a cesarean birth, either unplanned or planned?   Evelyn Conrad feels that many women’s feelings surrounding their cesarean births are not validated or addressed by anyone in the medical community or even by their family or friends.  On this edition of Baby Talk, Evelyn, birth advocate and doula, talks about ways that help women to heal following a cesarean birth.  And we are joined by others, including Paula Holland, birth doula and mother of four children, three of whom were born vaginally following an initial C-section.
