Caesarean delivery also known as a C-section is a surgical procedure used to deliver a baby through an incision in the mother's abdomen. At Vardhman hospital, Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh we promote and encourage normal delivery but there are certain situations in which normal delivery is not possible. In case your labour is not progressing even after trying to take pains or inducing the pain through medicine or there are multiple loops of umbilical cord around the neck, the child is not getting enough oxygen or you have any medical issues then the gynaecologist at Vardhman hospital, Uttar Pradesh will go for a caesarean delivery which is in the best interest of mother and child.
We don’t consider previous caesarean delivery as a reason to go for caesarean delivery. At Vardhman, we have many cases who had undergone caesarean section in their previous delivery but successfully delivered normally in their subsequent pregnancy.
Surgery & Recovery
In normal delivery you wait for labor pain to start however caesarean delivery is mostly planned. Your treating gynaecologist at Vardhman hospital Muzaffarnagar will give you a date for admission. You will undergo investigations after which an anaesthetist will examine you along with your reports to declare you fit for anaesthesia.
At the stipulated time you will be shifted to operation theatre and administered spinal anaesthesia. The child is delivered through an incision just above your pubic area. You are kept sedated and under influence of pain killers which is slowly withdrawn. You stay in hospital is for 2-3 days and are discharged after that. Stitches /staples are removed on day 10, however, you are advised not to lift heavy objects for a period of 4-6 weeks post-delivery.
