Who needs C-Section

C-section also called as cesarean delivery, is a procedure in which the baby is delivered through an incision in the mother's abdomen and uterus rather than through the vagina. A C-section may be medically necessary if:

  • Labor is not progressing
  • Multiple gestations, such as twins or triplets, have occurred
  • The fetus has experienced an emergency or severe health concern 
  • The baby is too large to travel through the cervix 
  • The mother has complicating conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure 

A C-section may be planned or unplanned and the decision is taken by the gynaecologist. In a C-section, the gynaecologist or obstetrician makes a cut across the abdomen and womb while the mother is under an epidural or spinal anaesthetic.

There is a chance that you experience symptoms like:

  • fever.
  • worsening pain.
  • increased vaginal bleeding.
  • increased redness at the incision site.

But these get better as the time passes if they do not go away please consult a doctor immediately

C-Section Benefits

There are various benefits to having a c-section but that doesn’t mean you should schedule the operation unless it’s needed, and that decision will always be taken by the doctor. Cesarean deliveries are on the rise globally. A cesarean section (c-section) can be the safest option if there are concerns about mother’s or baby’s, health. A planned c-section might reduce the risk of pain during and after the birth, injury to the vagina, heavy bleeding after the birth, loss of bladder control, the womb, vagina, bowel or bladder pushing against the wall of the vagina. This doesn’t mean that these things won’t happen, but the risk is lower as compared to in vaginal birth.

C-Section Recovery

After a C-section, the mother and the newborn can expect to remain in hospitals for 2–4 days. The new mother may experience pain at the site of the incision, cramping, and bleeding with or without clots for 4–6 weeks. The severity of these symptoms may vary for different women who have undergone the operation, but it improves fairly quickly as time passes. Below are the recommended steps to do for a quick c-section recovery:

  • Maintain hydration and drink plenty of water

  • Take medications as directed by the doctor

  • Rest when necessary and avoid strenuous physical activities.

  • Give support to the incision and abdomen with the use of a pregnancy belt or pillow

Generally, a c-section is considered safe. They do have more risks than normal deliveries. Plus, mothers can go home sooner and recover quicker after a vaginal delivery as compared to a c-section case.
