C-Section

C-Section also referred as Caesarean section is basically a surgical method used on pregnant women to deliver babies.  Women may prefer C-sections or in some complicated cases this is the only feasible way for delivery.

To achieve this incisions are made in the abdomen and the uterus of the mother. C-Section is generally planned early if the gynecologist diagnoses complications during the pregnancy period. These days most women consider C-Section to be the safest means for delivering babies. Factors that make C-Section indispensable are:

  1. Stalled labor can happen when the cervix is not opening or the baby has a big head that would be difficult to pass through.
  2. Position of the baby is also a factor. Any unusual position would mean difficulty in delivering the baby normally.
  3. If there are twins or triplets C-Section is the most preferred method for delivery.
  4. Mother’s health condition such as heart disease or hypertension can make vaginal delivery risky.
  5. You previously had a C-Section and the gynecologist after evaluating recommends a repeat C-Section.

The gynecologist would determine all the above criteria and then perform the C-Section. The mother and the baby need to remain hospitalized for at least 3 days. It would usually take 4-6 weeks to heal and you may encounter fatigue and discomfort. These conditions will cease to exist gradually.
