Episode 39 Content and Overview

A cesarean section, also known as a C-section, is a surgical procedure used to deliver a baby through incisions in the mother’s abdomen and uterus.  A C-section could be planned ahead of time if you have a complication that would make a vaginal delivery difficult or you have had a previous C-section and aren’t considering vaginal birth after cesarean, commonly referred to as a VBAC. Often a cesarean is not planned and the circumstances change when you are in labor, which lead to a C-section. If you are planning on a C-section you should know what is involved and what you can expect. This episode will also give you some tips on options you may not know that you have, and some tips to get your recovery off to a good start. If a C-section is the furthest thing from how you envision your birth knowing about C-sections will have you prepared for anything.
