Causes

  • A C-section might be recommended for women with certain health issues, such as a heart or brain condition.
  • A large fibroid blocking the birth canal, a pelvic fracture or a baby who has a condition that can cause the head to be unusually large (severe hydrocephalus) might be reasons for a C-section.

Symptoms

  • Labor is not progressing normally. Labor that is not progressing (labor dystocia) is one of the most common reasons for a C-section. Issues with labor progression include prolonged first stage (prolonged dilation or opening of the cervix) or prolonged second stage (prolonged time of pushing after complete cervical dilation).
  • The baby is in distress. Concern about changes in a babys heartbeat might make a C-section the safest option.
  • The baby or babies are in an unusual position. A C-section is the safest way to deliver babies whose feet or buttocks enter the birth canal first (breech) or babies whose sides or shoulders come first (transverse).
  • You're carrying more than one baby. A C-section might be needed for women carrying twins, triplets or more. This is especially true if labor starts too early or the babies are not in a head-down position.
  • There is a problem with the placenta. If the placenta covers the opening of the cervix (placenta previa), a C-section is recommended for delivery.
  • Prolapsed umbilical cord. A C-section might be recommended if a loop of umbilical cord slips through the cervix in front of the baby.

When to go for surgery?

Your doctor might recommend a planned, or elective, caesarean because it is the safest way to deliver the baby if: 1 ) Your baby is in an abnormal position, or you are carrying more than one baby (when it’s common for one of them to be in an abnormal position)

Frequently Asked Questions

It is a surgical procedure to remove your baby. Instead of vaginally, the baby is removed via incisions made in your abdomen and uterus. Once the surgeon has made the incisions, your baby is pulled through the incision.It might be a different method to extract or remove your baby, but a C-Section is birth. A valid, and normal birth. Please remember that!It may be different from what you planned, but Caesareans are still giving birth.

You do not usually think about layers in your body. To remove your baby, the surgeon cut through 5 layers. The baby was protected by those 5 layers, which are: Skin, Subcutaneous Tissue, Rectus Abdominal Muscles, Peritoneum, and the Uterine muscle

This can be a big one to grapple with, especially post-emergency C-Section, or after a C-Section without much time to prepare for. Birth is all about choosing the safest option for the mother, and child. We are lucky to have a health system in which the health and safety of the mother and baby is always the number one priority. There are variety of reasons for C-Sections, falling into the planned, or unplanned / emergency category. If your birth was an unplanned or an emergency C-Section, it was deemed necessary to facilitate the safe and healthy arrival of your baby and your wellbeing.

Once you have given birth, post-partum bleeding, known as lochia, is a normal part of the body returning to its pre-partum state. This is no different whether you have given birth vaginally, or via C-Section.Stock up on maternity pads, because your lochia will be heaviest in the first days post-birth, then it should decrease.After the heaviest bleeding subsides, you can have lighter bleeding and spotting for up to 6 weeks post-birth.But get in touch with your Doctor if the bleeding does not decrease, smells strange, or you experience many clots, dizziness, or fever
