When is a Cesarean Section required?
Cesarean section or C-Section is the procedure of delivering a baby surgically by the abdominal route. It was basically invented for a baby who would not pass through the pelvis and got stuck. Cephalo Pelvic Disproportion still remains one of the leading indications – but with time the indications have broadened. We now also do it for Abnormal Position of the baby, Fetal distress, and at times when Mothers health is at risk if delivery is not done quickly.
What to expect Post a C-Section?
Your Baby ! and this will alleviate whatever little pain and discomfort the surgery may cause you. You start breastfeeding the baby immediately after the surgery. After 24 hours you are encouraged to walk around and by end of Day 2, you are on a full diet. We generally discharge you on Day 3 or 4 depending on how comfortable you are with managing the child.
Are there any risk involved in C-Section?
Just like any surgery risk of anesthesia and surgery are always there but they are extremely rare since most of the patients under Dr. Thanwala’s pregnancy management program are healthy young women.
Post C-Section Care?
After 7 days – generally, all normal activity is allowed – but avoid doing anything which will raise the intraabdominal pressure or put undue pressure on the scar.. like lifting heavy objects/leg raising exercises. Postnatal exercises are introduced gradually after 2 weeks and after 6 weeks of surgery all activity is permitted
Yes. Chances of things going wrong are slim
You are up and about in 3 days. However, Total healing of tissue takes place in 6 weeks
Normally 3 – 4 days
Incidence of complications is low – however as with normal delivery there can he post partum bleeding during surgery, if infection occurs in the incision healing takes longer and dressings are required
OfCourse! you can breastfeed the baby
