If you had asked me 5 years ago whether I thought that meditation was an integral component of health and wellness I probably would have shrugged and perhaps even chuckled. Well, since then, I have learned that meditation, in particular it’s affect on stress reduction, is an integral part of health wellness and sexuality and should be incorporated into every woman’s daily routine.

Easier said than done you may say. Take it from me, a Type A, multi-tasking do-it-all woman who can’t sit still for 5 minutes, much less try to clear my mind and to still for 20 minutes.

A growing number of women are requesting delivery by elective cesarean section without an accepted "medical indication," and physicians were in the past either uncertain how to respond or unwilling to perform elective C-Sections.

The reason being that it was believed that the risk of surgery outweighed the benefit to the fetus and the mother. This trend is now changing due to the fact that cesarean delivery is much safer now than in the past and to the recognition that most studies looking at the risks of cesarean section were biased, due to fact that women in studies more likely to have been selected for an elective cesarean sections as well as non elective C-Sections.
