if u have fever or oozing of pus from stitches then chances of infection are more. Otherwise the internal stitches will be still raw. so they can pain also. u have to maintain clear bowels and urine. for that minimum solids and only liquids should be taken.

By following few tips you can soothe your cough post c section like drink lots of water after the operation, take all the drugs offered to you afterwards. When you cough - try to relax as much as possible - and brace your tummy for support. If your cough is due to other reasons, you may need an examination to identify the right cause.

C-Section - Why It Is Required?

C-Section - Why It Is Required?

When the delivery of a baby has to happen through a surgical process rather than normal childbirth, the procedure is known as a Caesarean Section or a C-section. There are many reasons why one may need to go through this surgical procedure including complications during pregnancy and childbirth. One can also plan for a C-section beforehand by talking it through with a doctor who will recommend the same in case there are any complications and risks at play during the pregnancy. Read on to know more about the procedure.

Reasons: There are many reasons why a doctor may want to go in for a C-section. If the labour is not progressing properly, then a C-section may be required in order to extract the baby. This procedure may also be used in case the baby is not getting the proper amount of oxygen which can put it in distress and lead to changes in the heartbeat. Also, if the baby is in an abnormal position like a breech position, then a C-section may be required. This procedure is also used when a woman is carrying twins or triplets. Other health concerns like high blood pressure and genital herpes or even HIV can lead to this procedure. Any mechanical obstruction like fibroids in the birth canal can also cause the doctor to resort to a C-section, while a patient who has delivered via C-section earlier may also be asked to do the same again.

Risks and complications: One has to remember that a C-section takes longer to recover from than normal childbirth and delivery would. Also, it does pose a few risks and complications that may arise during and after the procedure.

  1. Breathing issues: The babies who are born via C-section are more susceptible to a condition known transient tachypnea which is a breathing problem characterised by an abnormally fast rate of breathing in and out. Also, other respiratory distress syndromes may take over subsequently.
  2. Surgical injuries: The doctor may accidentally nick the baby’s skin during the surgical process which involves the use of sharp instruments for making the incision.
  3. Inflammation risk: The uterus may undergo inflammation which may also lead to endometriosis as well as infections of the membrane which can cause fever and foul-smelling vaginal discharge. The wound may also get infected.
  4. Bleeding: While some amount of bleeding is normal, this procedure can also lead to excessive bleeding in which case immediate medical intervention may be required. Also, the patient may suffer from blood clots inside the veins of the pelvic organs. These clots may also travel to the lungs and cause further complications.

7 Most Common Reasons For C-section Delivery!

Despite what you plan, mother-to-be might have to go in for an unplanned c-section delivery. But why this happens. There are a number of reasons, lets look into it.
1. Failure to progress with labour either cervix, not dilating or the labour has stopped/slowed or the baby is not in an optimal delivery position
2. Abnormal position of the baby like breech, transverse lie
3. Fetal distress means the baby's heart rate is dipping due to inadequate oxygen supply
4. Placenta previa when the placenta lies low in the uterus and partially or completely covering uterus
5. Cord prolapse when baby's umbilical cord slips in the vagina
6. Cephalo pelvic disproportion when the pelvis is inadequate for the size of baby
7. Previous c-section delivery.

Natural & Cesarean Delivery - Which One To Opt For?

Child deliveries during pregnancies are of two types. If you are pregnant or have someone in your family who is then you can either go for caesarean section (or C-section) delivery or normal delivery, which is also known as vaginal delivery. In some case, C-section delivery is chosen by your doctor as it may be a safer option in case you have some health complications. Diabetes, high blood pressure or herpes can cause complication that may in advance let you know whether the delivery procedure would be C-section or the normal one. Here are the pro and cons of both the procedure.

Natural Delivery: Benefits and Disadvantages

  1. Shorter stay in the hospital and time for recovery can help you in case of normal delivery.
  2. It may be physically painful but at the end of the day as it is a natural delivery method and you will experience less postpartum pain.
  3. There would be lesser chances of respiratory problems in your baby.
  4. Normal delivery may cause fear and anxiety which may lead to huge complications. Even your baby may face the risk of being deprived of oxygen from cord compression. 
  5. It is also more painful and unpredictable.
  6. There may be increased chances of pelvic organ prolapses in normal section deliveries.

C-section: Benefits and Disadvantages

  1. You will be well in advance told about the delivery date by your doctor and hence planning is made easy. 2. If you have any infection like herpes chances of your baby being is reduced by c section delivery.
  2. There will be lesser risk of pelvic floor injury and few cases of urinary continence.
  3. There will be no risk of birth-related trauma like bruises and swelling.
  4. There are surgical risks of anesthesia which can cause severe adverse side effects like headache, nausea and vomiting
  5. There are also chances of heart attacks and blood clotting in veins. You may also have chances of postpartum infection in c section delivery.
  6. Numbness around the area of operation and bleeding may require a hysterectomy which is a surgery to remove the uterus.

There are many other pro and cons of the two methods of delivery and you should always consult your doctor and follow proper medications for better delivery of the newborn.

C-Section - How To Recover From It?

C-Section - How To Recover From It?

Babies can enter this world in one of two ways: Pregnant women can have either a vaginal birth or a surgical delivery by Caesarean section, but the ultimate goal is to safely give birth to a healthy baby.

A C-section or Caesarean section is a surgical procedure to remove the baby through an incision in the mother’s abdomen and then a second incision in the uterus.

A C-section may be a necessity in certain situations, such as delivering a very large baby in a mother with a small pelvis, or if the baby is not in a head-down position and efforts to turn the baby before a woman gives birth have been unsuccessful.

Sometimes the decision by an obstetrician to perform a C-section is unplanned, and it is done for emergency reasons because the health of the mother, the baby, or both of them is in jeopardy. This may occur because of a problem during pregnancy or after a woman has gone into labor, such as if labor is happening too slowly or if the baby is not getting enough oxygen.

Some C-sections are considered elective, meaning they are requested by the mother for non-medical reasons before she goes into labor. A woman may choose to have a C-section if she wants to plan when she delivers or if she previously had a complicated vaginal delivery.

Reasons for a C-section may include-

  1. Health problems in the mother
  2. The mother carrying more than one baby
  3. The size or position of the baby
  4. The baby’s health is in danger
  5. Labor is not moving along as it should

The surgery is relatively safe for mother and baby. Still, it is major surgery and carries risks. It also takes longer to recover from a C-section than from vaginal birth. It can raise the risk of having difficulties with future pregnancies. Some women may have problems attempting a vaginal birth later. Still, many women are able to have a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC).

How You Might Feel-

You won’t feel any pain during the C-section, although you may feel sensations like pulling and pressure. Most women are awake and simply numbed from the waist down using regional anesthesia during a C-section.

That way, they are awake to see and hear their baby being born. A curtain will be over your abdomen during the surgery, but you may be able to take a peek as your baby is being delivered from your belly.

However, women who need to have an emergency C-section occasionally require general anaesthesia, so they’re unconscious during the delivery and won’t remember anything or feel any pain.

Recovering from a C-section-

After a C-section, a woman may spend two to four days in the hospital, but it may take her up to six weeks to feel more like herself again.

Her abdomen will feel sore from the surgery and the skin and nerves in this area will need time to heal. Women will be given narcotic pain medications to take the edge off any post-surgery pain, and most women use them for about two weeks afterwards.

A woman may also experience bleeding for about four to six weeks after a surgical birth. She is also advised to not have sex for a few weeks after her C-section and to also avoid strenuous activities, such as lifting heavy objects.
