A lot of pregnant women are asking what really happens during a ceasarian section. Below is my experience when I underwnet one.
-Eat a normal meal the night before your operation, for it is not allowed to eat anymore on the day of the actual operation
-Remove all makeup. nail polish, body piercing, contact lenses, jewelry and hair pieces.
At the hospital:
-You will be asked to put on the hospital gown
-If the husband/partner is allowed iinside the operationg room, he is asked to put also the hospital gown and be sanitized.
-Check all your vital signs.
-Check the baby’s vital signs.
-Trim your pubic hair
-Administer anesthesia, depending on what kind of anesthesia your prefer.
-Insert the catheter to empty your bladder
-Start the operation. The cut may be vertical or horizontal depending on your case or the baby’s case or whatever your request
-The baby will be taken out
-Hospital staff will clean the baby
-Baby will undergo his first check up – monitoring vitals signs,getting his weight and measurement
-He will be wrapped in a blanket and will be given to the parents as long as he is medically stable. Otherwise, if he has complications he will be headed to the nursery room
-He will be given a name band.
