C-Section - Surya Hospitals
Call Us: +91 8828828100



A Caesarean section also referred to as a C-section, is a medical procedure in which the baby is delivered by making an incision through the mother’s abdomen and uterus. The procedure is usually recommended when a female is carrying twins or experiencing complications that cannot be addressed via normal delivery. Our Obstetrics Department at Surya Hospitals is backed by cutting-edge equipment and highly qualified medical professionals who have years of experience in the field. Our team is equipped and experienced to handle the most complicated pregnancies, giving utmost priority to the well-being of both, the mother as well as the baby. 

When do you need C-Section?

At Surya, we prioritize a patient-centric approach and provide the best care and treatment, adapting our plan of action to each mother’s and baby’s particular needs. Our team thoroughly analyses your unique situation and offers individualised treatment to guarantee a memorable and satisfying childbirth experience. There are times when expecting mothers want to go for a C-section as their personal choice, however, there are also certain circumstances that may call for the need for a C-section as the preferred approach.  These include:

  • Fetal distress: A C-section may be performed as an emergency procedure, to immediately deliver the baby, in the case of fetal distress, a condition marked by a restricted supply of oxygen to the fetus. 
  • Failure to progress: A C-section may be required if the mother’s labour does not advance despite several hours of contractions.
  • Placenta previa: This condition is named if the placenta is covering the fetus or the cervix, necessitating a C-section.
  • Multiple births: At Surya Hospitals, our medical practitioners closely look out for all the potential concerns during multiple births which also includes the overall health and desire of the mother in labour at that moment. A C-section may be required to ensure the safe delivery of all infants if a woman is carrying more than one.
  • Breech presentation: A C-section can be required to prevent difficulties during delivery if the baby is not in the head-down position. For a mother in labour, giving birth to a baby in the breech position can often lead to a longer and more difficult labour process. After having clear communication with the mother and her family the doctor advises for the further delivery method.
  • Previous C- Section with a thin scar: A careful review by healthcare specialists is critical when a previous C-section has resulted in a thin scar. A C-section may be recommended in specific instances to guarantee the safety of both the mother and the baby during childbirth.
  • Pregnancy-induced Hypertension: It is characterised by high blood pressure that can endanger both the mother and the infant. In some cases, a C-section may be required to avoid further difficulties and ensure a safe delivery.
  • Meconium Aspiration: It can cause respiratory distress when a newborn passes their first stool (meconium) into the amniotic fluid before or during birth. A C-section may be performed in severe circumstances to hasten the delivery and provide prompt medical assistance for the baby’s well-being.

How to prepare for C-Section if you require it?

The mother will be given preparation instructions if a C-section is anticipated. This can include: 

  • Planning transportation to and from the hospital.
  • Stopping some medications before the procedure.
  • Fasting for a predetermined number of hours.
  • C-Section is performed under the influence of anaesthesia. This could be in the form of an epidural, which numbs the area around the spinal cord, or a general anaesthetic, which puts the mother to sleep. 
  • Doctors make an incision on the abdomen through which the baby is taken out. The incision will be, then, closed with stitches or staples. The mother will be closely watched in the recovery area after the procedure, which lasts around an hour in total.

Recuperation after a C-Section

  • The surgery has become less invasive with the introduction of minimally invasive methods like laparoscopic or robotic-assisted C-sections. Thus, these methods promote quicker recovery with the help of specialised devices and smaller incisions. 
  • After a C-section, early mobilisation and ambulation can accelerate healing, lower the risk of problems such as blood clots, and enhance general health. Today, medical professionals advise women to get moving as soon as possible after the procedure, usually within a few hours.
  • To maximise recovery following a C-section, Surya Hospitals employs a multidisciplinary strategy combining obstetricians, anesthesiologists, nurses, and physical therapists. This method includes advice on post-operative care, such as wound care and infection prevention, early breastfeeding beginning, emotional support, and personalised pain management measures.

Things to take care of in C-section if you choose or are advised for it:

Prior to a C-section:

  • Follow Your Healthcare Provider’s Instructions: It’s crucial to strictly adhere to your healthcare provider’s pre-operative preparation instructions. 
  • Mental and Emotional Preparation: Talk to Surya’s healthcare professional about any worries or concerns. Use our specially designed relaxation methods or counselling to help you feel better and mentally get ready for the treatment.

During C-Section:

  • Anaesthesia and pain management: Before the procedure, we’ll talk to you about your anaesthesia alternative to enhance your comfort during the procedure. We will implement efficient pain management techniques to maintain your maximum level of comfort.
  • Communication with the Medical Team: Throughout the procedure, we encourage active engagement and honest communication with the medical team. Please don’t hesitate to enquire and express any worries you may have.
  • Emotional Support: Having a support person nearby while you decide on the C- section procedure can give you emotional comfort. The medical staff will also be on hand to allay any doubts or worries you may have.

After C-section:

  • Breastfeeding and Bonding: Surya’s obstetrics experts will help you to establish breastfeeding by working with lactation consultants and nurses. Our doctors recommend instant skinship i.e. cuddling and connecting with your infant after the delivery.
  • Maintain follow-up consultations: These visits are crucial for keeping track of your progress and addressing any issues.
  • Keep in mind that every person’s recovery will be unique. In order to have a quick and effective recovery from a C-section, it is essential that you adhere to the detailed instructions and advice given to you by your healthcare practitioner.

Our skilled team of doctors and nurses is here to support you every step of the way if you are thinking about having a C-section or have been told by your doctor that one is required.

We’re here to help you with any worries you might have and to give you the care and support you need to have your baby in a safe and healthy way.
