What Is An Emergency C-Section-

Hi ladies!

It’s just recently I discovered that C-Section is done under two circumstances - which are:

- Emergency C-Section (about which I am going to discuss today)

- Planned C-Section

As the name itself suggests what an “Emergency C-Section” means, Let’s directly jump on the questions like “why” and “How” a woman ends up in such a situation.

SO LET’S DO THIS

If you need an emergency C-section, or your doctor has decided that you or your baby are in dire stress and immediate delivery is the only option. Possible reasons for an emergency cesarean include:

- Fetal or maternal distress

- Prolapsed umbilical cord (the umbilical cord drops through your cervix into your vagina ahead of your baby)

- Maternal hemorrhage

- Placental abruption (the placenta peels away from the wall of your uterus)

- Uterine rupture (your uterus tears along a previous C-section scar)

Reasons for an Unscheduled C-section

There is a difference between an unscheduled C-section and an emergency C-section, although people often use the terms interchangeably. Unplanned cesareans are still considered urgent, but typically mother and baby aren’t in life-threatening situations. Common causes for an urgent, unplanned C-section could include:

- Labour isn't progressing.

- Contractions are too weak.

- Baby isn’t tolerating labour.

- Baby is sideways or breeches when labour begins.

I guess I have put forward everything in my knowledge to guide you through it. If you are still left with any doubts, then do mention them in the comment section below.

Gracias!

Have a good day or evening ahead.
