Good Evening my beautiful and brave ladies!
For many reasons, a woman may want a planned cesarean section to give birth. For some, it's a medical choice. But C-sections have risks of its own. Some healthy women want the surgery so they can pick their delivery date or avoid a vaginal delivery. And for the women, for whom the reasons are not exactly medical, I have some information that you would want to consider before planning you C-Section.
So let’s do it!
Why have a planned caesarean?
You know, one of my sister’s C-Section delivery was planned so that she could pick up a date of her own choice (she is into numerology). You see these can be reasons too.
Nonetheless, Your doctor might recommend a planned, or elective, caesarean because it is the safest way to deliver the baby if:
- your baby is in an abnormal position, or you are carrying more than one baby (when it’s common for one of them to be in an abnormal position)
- you are carrying more than one baby and they need to be born early, or there are other problems
- your placenta is covering all or part of the cervix
- you have a health problem, such as a heart problem, high blood pressure, or an infection that could be passed to your baby during vaginal birth, such as genital herpes or HIV
- you or your baby have other medical complications, for example, if you have fibroids (growths in the uterus) or your baby has severe hydrocephalus (extra fluid on the brain)
- you have had other babies via caesarean section
I am in no way here to influence your decision but just to make your aware of the fact that a caesarean is a major surgery which carries risks, including heavy bleeding and problems with the placenta. It can also affect future pregnancies if you plan any.
So that is all ladies - I am done for the day here. Hope you have a nice day/evening.
