Motherhood is the happiest and the longest phase in a woman’s life but it is not guaranteed that comes minus any pain and trouble. Apart from the nine months of pregnancy, delivering a child can also be quite a harrowing experience for many. Both normal delivery and cesarian section come with their own share of problems.
Let’s discuss some issues associated with C-section or Caesarean section.
A C-section can be defined as a surgical procedure used to deliver a baby by making incisions in the abdomen and then the uterus. In most cases, C-section is planned well ahead of the delivery time if the pregnancy has some kind of complication. At times, the need for C-section arises in case normal labour develops some difficulty.
Three types of anaesthesia are given to the pregnant lady before C-section:
- Epidural- anaesthesia is injected into the lower back outside the sac of the spinal cord.
- General anaesthesia- this type puts the patient to a painless sleep and is done only in case of emergencies
- Spinal block- anaesthesia is injected directly into the sac surrounding the spinal cord which creates a numbing effect on the lower part of the body.
Some of the Reasons Why C-section Needs to be Done are:-
- The Head of the baby is too big for vaginal delivery
- Complications in early pregnancy
- Previous history of caesarean section
- Breech birth ( when the baby is coming out from the feet first)
- Stalled labour
- Issues with the umbilical cord or placenta ( placenta previa or placental abruption)
- Reduced or cut off the oxygen supply to the baby
- Active genital herpes in the mother with the threat of being transferred to the baby
- Heart disease or high blood pressure in the mother
- Transverse labour ( When the baby is coming out shoulder first)
Complications in C-Section
Even though C-section is becoming a common method of childbirth, it is still associated with a few complications and risks for both the mother and child:
- High chances of infection
- Bleeding and blood clots
- Injury to the child during the surgical procedure
- Any kind of surgical injury to some other organs
- Troubles in breathing for the child especially if the procedure is done before completing 39 weeks of pregnancy
- Adhesions and other such complications of abdominal surgery
- Longer healing time in comparison to normal delivery
- The high-risk factor for future pregnancies
