Abstract

Approximately one in four childbearing women now experiences cesarean delivery (Taffel, Placek, & Moien, 1990). Research has revealed that adaptation to cesarean birth is influenced by obstetrical and hospital policies, such as type of anesthesia and presence of a support person at the delivery, as well as by preparation for cesarean delivery. Little attention has, however, been given to the influence of culture on adaptation to the cesarean birth experience.
