There are many reasons why C-Section has been selected and performed. This was also known as surgery that usually occurs when the baby cannot be delivered vaginally and must be removed from the mother’s womb.
Who needs a C-Section?
Some C-Section are planned, while others are emergency. The most common reasons for C-Section are:
• Women who are giving birth to multiples
• Women who have high blood pressure
• Placenta or umbilical cord problems
• Failure of labor to progress
• Problems with the shape of your uterus and/or pelvis
• The baby is in breech position, or any other position that may contribute to an unsafe delivery
• The baby shows signs of distress, including a high heart rate
• The baby has a health problem that could cause vaginal delivery to be risky
• You have a health condition such HIV and Herpes infection that could affect the baby
Complications from C-Section are rare, but they can include:• Reactions to anesthetic medications
• Blood clots
• Bowel or bladder injuries
Women who have had a C-Section may still be able to have a vaginal birth through a procedure known as VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Cesarean).
Most women will be required to stay in the hospital for up to five nights. Physical activity can be painful and difficult at first. And you are likely to be given painkillers first through IV (intravenous) and oral medications.
Your physical activity will be limited or restricted from 4 to 6 weeks after surgery.
