A Cesarean section or a C- section is the delivery of a baby through surgical process by operating the mother's womb or uterus. In most of the cases, Cesarean section is done before the actual date of the delivery date provided by the Gynecologist. Some of the common reasons for Cesarean Section are obstructed labour, birth of twins, high blood pressure in the mother, issues related to placenta, umbilical cord and previous C-section. A Cesarean section usually takes 45 minutes to an hour and is done by giving general anesthesia to the mother. In some cases, the mother will be know what is happening while only the place of incision will be made numb. At the same time, a urinary catheter is kept to empty the bladder and the skin of the abdomen is sterilized. A cut of about 5 to 6 inches is done on the lower abdomen after which the uterus is opened with a second incision. After this the cuts are stitched and closed. A Cesarean Section takes a longer time to heal mostly 6-7 weeks than the normal vaginal birth. It is recommended that C-section should not be done before the completion of 39 weeks of pregnancy. A gynecologist will be allowed to perform only when the vaginal delivery is posing a threat of risk to either the mother or the child.
