C section Delivery
A C-section, or Caesarean section (also spelled Cesarean section), is a type of surgery used to deliver a baby. The baby is surgically removed through an incision in the mother's abdomen and then a second incision in the uterus.
Why Do You Need To Undergo This Package?
A C-section is typically performed when complications from pregnancy make traditional birth difficult, or puts the mother or child at risk. Sometimes C-sections are planned early in the pregnancy, but they are most often performed when complications arise during labor..
What Are The Preparation Required?
No preparation required, but it is mandatory to reach hospital and report to them. Later anesthesia will be injected..
Procedure For This Package
The obstetrician will use a knife to make a horizontal incision in the skin and the abdominal wall, usually along the bikini line. After the abdomen is opened, an incision is made in the uterus. Typically, a side-to-side (horizontal) cut is made, which ruptures the amniotic sac surrounding the baby. Once this protective membrane is ruptured, the baby is removed from the uterus, the umbilical cord is cut, and the placenta is removed. The baby is examined then given back to the mother for skin-to-skin contact. Once the delivery and afterbirth are completed, the cuts made to the mother's uterus are repaired with stitches, which will eventually dissolve under the skin. The abdominal skin is closed with stitches or with staples, which are removed before a woman leaves the hospital..
