What is C-section?

C-section, also called cesarean delivery, is the surgical procedure in which incisions are made in the mother's abdominal wall and uterus to deliver one or more babies. C- section is often performed when there is a risk to both the baby and the mother due in case of a vaginal delivery.

How To Prepare For C-section

  • Your doctor will explain why you need caesarean surgery and the benefits and risks involved with it.
  • You have to do specific surgical tests to know your general health, blood group, etc.
  • Your doctor will advise you to do fasting for at least two hours before the surgery.
  • To empty your bowels, you could be given an enema.
  • Don't shave your pubic hair for one week before the surgery because it will be done in the hospital itself with antiseptic.

How Is C-section Delivery Done?

  • The hospital staff will bring you to the operation theatre. You have to lie on an operating table where the medical staff will give IV fluids and medications.
  • The anesthesiologist will preferably give you spinal anaesthesia to numb your bottom half so that you can be awake and alert for the birth of your baby.
  • An incision about 10 to 20 cm long is usually made across your lower abdomen and womb to deliver the baby.
  • You may feel a pushing sensation while the doctors are pulling the baby out of the womb.
  • Your doctor and partner will be able to hold the child if everything is normal. The whole surgical procedure takes about 40 to 50 minutes.
