International college of obstetrics surgeons

Every woman has 3 basic expectations during delivery

Whatever the delivery way, obstetrics surgeons strive to make it the closest experience to a good natural birth for the mother and her family. That is why ICOS developped a mother and baby centered strategy for cesarean section: Abdominal Birth Concept.

1 Participate Actively in the birthing process

Birth is one of these rare moments when a woman can act to welcome her baby into this world

2 Avoid Separation from your child

Baby mother relation begins with a close bonding within the first minutes of life. This is the so called “golden hour”.

3 Recover Quickly to be available for the baby

Maternal autonomy and wellbeing are paramount to ease early bonding and create a good experience of birth for parents.
