Cassandra's review-  The book is so fun to read and think about, but it does require skill to actually create with.  The author talks about using photoshop and people might not have access to this or be too young to grasp the concept, so this is more for advanced and older learners.   Younger kids will have fun looking at the wonderfully done illustrations.

April is National C-Section Awareness Month

A whopping 41% of births in North America are delivered via C-section and most moms who've experienced a caesarean delivery would agree it's a painful procedure with a very uncomfortable healing process.

One mompreneur and occupational therapist in particular, Catherine Brooks, experienced a C-section delivery of her own and discovered a great need for a post C-section undergarment in the women's medical care market to help ease recovery. Catherine went on to invent UpSpring's C-Panty, the only patented postpartum undergarment that provides everything you need for C-section recovery. The C-Panty provides medical grade compression, a silicone panel to reduce scarring, reduces swelling and discomfort, and speeds up the recovery process.
