What is a C-section?

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 may be elective or recommended when a female is experiencing complications that cannot be addressed via normal delivery.

Doctors usually recommend the procedure be performed after the completion of 39 weeks of pregnancy, as this allows the baby to develop properly, however in the case of any emergency, it may be performed prior to 39 weeks.

How to prepare for a C-section?

If you preparing for a C-section, here are a few things that you need to take care of:

What happens during a C-section?

The procedure is performed under the influence of anaesthesia (spinal, epidural or general) and can take anywhere between 30  minutes to an hour. 

What happens after a C-section?

Every woman’s recovery journey will be unique, however, it is essential that you adhere to the detailed instructions and advice given to you by our team, for added safety at every step. 

Soon after the effect of the anaesthesia wears off, you are likely to experience pain and soreness after the surgery. This is temporary and can be managed with prescribed pain medication. 

We staunchly emphasize breastfeeding and bonding. Our expert will help you with the process as it can be a bit challenging if it is your first time. In case, the mother is not able to feed the baby, we also offer a specialized Human Milk Bank facility to ensure your baby’s nutrition and well-being are not being compromised. 

You will be assigned a midwife/nurse to help you during your hospital stay who will take care of your needs and guide you with their knowledge and experience. Your diet, nutrition and medication will be taken care of to make sure you can cherish quality time with your baby and family. 

To facilitate swift and sound recovery, you will be encouraged to walk around. These alleviate the risks of complications like clotting and swelling. 

How does a C-section benefit the mother and the baby?

Frequently Asked Questions

When is it advised to have a C-section?

Anesthesia is used to manage the discomfort after a C-section, and recovery times vary. Since this is a surgical operation, some discomfort is to be expected while the wound heals.

After a C-section, breastfeeding is recommended, and medical professionals can provide advice on placement and support.

What is the average recovery period following a Cesarean Section?

Recovery times vary, but with the right postoperative care, most women can get back to their regular activities in six weeks.

Can I give birth normally if I’ve had a C-section before?

A vaginal birth after a prior C-section (VBAC) is feasible in certain circumstances, but it relies on things like the cause of the prior cesarean section and one's present state of health. See your healthcare provider for specific recommendations.
