Cesarean delivery

Cesarean delivery, also known as a C-section, is a surgical procedure in which incisions are made in the abdomen and uterus to deliver a baby. It may be necessary if there are certain pregnancy complications. Women who have had a C-section in the past may also have another one planned for their next delivery.

When would I need a C-section?
  •  The baby is in a breech position, or in a position other than head-first.
  •  The placenta is blocking the cervix or is low-lying.
  •  The baby has a health condition that makes vaginal delivery risky.
  •  The mother has a health condition that makes vaginal delivery risky, such as hypertension, placenta previa, or diabetes. The mother has had a previous cesarean delivery.
  •  The baby is not responding well during labor, and there are signs of distress.
  •  The mother's labor is not progressing as expected or has been stalled for some time.
  •  The mother or baby carries a genetic disorder that can be transmitted during vaginal delivery.
It's important to note that the decision to perform a C-section is made by the obstetrician in consultation with the mother and it is based on the individual circumstances of the pregnancy, labor, and delivery.

What actually happens during a C-section:
  •  Anesthesia: The mother will be given either spinal or epidural anesthesia to numb the lower half of her body.
  •  Incision: The surgeon will make an incision through the mother's abdomen and uterus in order to deliver the baby.
  •  Delivery of the baby: The baby will be carefully lifted out of the uterus and placed on the mother's chest or handed over to a pediatrician for examination and care.
  •  Closure of the incision: The uterus and abdomen will be closed with stitches or staples. Delivery of the placenta: The placenta will be delivered and examined for any abnormalities.
  •  Monitoring: The mother and baby will be closely monitored for any complications during the recovery period.
  •  Pain Management: The mother will be given pain medication to manage any discomfort from the incision.
  •  Recovery: The mother will be in the hospital for a few days and will be advised to take bed rest for some time
 It's important to note that every C-section is different, and the process may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the pregnancy and delivery.
