C-section Procedures

Pregnant women who have entered the age of 9 months, have actually thought about what methods they will do to help the delivery process. Most probably will choose the process of a caesarean section, because besides being practical, the pain is also not felt during labor. Now, here is the procedure for caesarean section.

1. Mother Drugged

Before the operation takes place, Mother will first get an anesthetic injection, but not totally anesthetized. In this sense, the mother will stay awake during the operation, which only numbs the abdomen to the feet. Slowly, the anesthetic effect will disappear after surgery, so that the incision will be painful.

2. Mother’s Stomach Slashed

Then the mother’s abdomen and uterus will be sliced around 10 to 20 centimeters. Generally the incision is made horizontally below the waist line. Sometimes the incision is made under the navel, 10 to 15 cm long.

3. The baby is expelled

The patient’s baby will be removed as soon as an incision has been made in that section. The doctor will first lift the baby’s head and shoulders. The process takes 5 to 10 minutes. The doctor will also show and give the baby to the mother after being removed from the stomach. But there are some cases, where babies will be cleaned first.

4. Doctor Remove the Placenta

After the baby comes out, the doctor will immediately remove the placenta that is left in the uterus of pregnant women. The doctor will also give an injection of the hormone oxytocin to stimulate uterine contractions. It aims to reduce bleeding.

5. Close the incision

After the baby and the placenta come out of the stomach, the doctor will do is close the incision with stitches. Usually this process lasts for 20 to 40 minutes.

6. Mother Given Pain Relief Medication

After the surgery went well, the mother will be taken to the treatment room. The doctor will give pain relievers to reduce pain in the incision. But usually, there is an observation process that first takes place for two hours, postoperatively.

To note, mothers who perform cesarean section will be prohibited from having sex for four to six weeks. Besides the ideal distance of pregnancy after caesarean delivery is 24 months, or the fastest for one and a half years.
