One of the biggest populations to benefit from the Surgical Serenity Solution is women who are preparing for childbirth, know that they will probably have a C-section for various reasons.   A C-section is considered major surgery, but the reason for it, ultimately is a happy reason.  The normal recovery time for a healthy young woman is about a month.

The patient in this photo was waiting for her first child to be delivered by C-section.  She happened to be a professional musician and was fairly skeptical about whether or not music through headphones could make a difference for the tremendously anxious and fearful patient.

When the procedure was over and patient was home with her new daughter, she had this to say:  “I am so glad that I used the Surgical Serenity Solution!  As it turned out, I was put in a big room with other women waiting for C-sections and they were very noisy, some fussing and yelling at their husbands, talking loudly on their phones to family members, some even crying!  If I had not had these wonderful headphones, I don’t think I could have stood all the commotion.  I took the headphones off for the actual delivery, but put them back on when I got to recovery.  I’ve been using them at home just to relax when baby is sleeping and I look forward to using them for years to come!!  Thank you Dr. Cash!”
