Cesarean Awareness Month, which takes place in April, is a worldwide campaign to educate society about surgical births, their importance, and when they become a problem. A cesarean is a life-saving procedure for women in need but is also a problem when performed unnecessarily.

Cesarean Awareness Month (CAM) focuses on all topics surrounding cesareans including: reducing preventable c-sections, the patient experience of cesarean delivery, and advocating for vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC).
