A caesarean section is a medical procedure in which a baby is birthed with an incision made in the mommy's abdominal wall and the wall of the womb. If there are issues that avoid the child being birthed by a normal vaginal birth, your child will need to be birthed by caesarean section. A caesarean section may be intended if there are signs that a vaginal birth is dangerous, or unexpected if there are issues during work. A genital birth is usually the best way for your child to be born if you have no significant problems with your maternity or work. There are a number of reasons you and your obstetrician might select a prepared caesarean birth. A health issue, such as high blood pressure, is making labour riskier for you and your baby. Around 1 in 4 pregnant women in the UK has a caesarean birth. If there's time to plan the procedure, your midwife or doctor will go over the benefits and risks of a caesarean compared to a vaginal birth. If after going over all the risks and becoming aware of all the assistance on deal you still feel that a vaginal birth is not an appropriate option, you must be offered an intended caesarean. You may need an optional caesarean section if: you have a very low-lying placenta which covers your cervix and blocks your infant's way out; you're having doubles, triplets or more, often doubles are born vaginally, yet if you're having triplets or more you'll likely need one; you have other wellness concerns, which suggests a caesarean section is much safer for you; your child remains in a setting that makes genital birth more difficult or difficult, such as if they're breech. You can talk about it and make a decision together if your obstetrician believes it may be the finest alternative for you and your child.
