Unscheduled C-sections are usually performed by doctors when complications arise form vaginal delivery.

Scheduled Caesarean Section - me!
Caesarean sections often scheduled if there are problems that have been identified earlier like conditions that create a higher-risk pregnancy and may require Caesarean delivery include:

* Placenta previa
The placenta partially or completely covers the cervical opening to the birth canal or vagina.
* Breech birth
The baby is positioned with the buttocks or feet first instead of the usual head-down position
* Multiple pregnancies
Two or more babies are developing at the same time. Some twin pregnancies can be born vaginally, but Caesarean section usually is done when three or more babies are expected.
* Previous surgery on the uterus
This includes certain types of Caesarean section, especially those involving a vertical incision, also known as a classical incision. Prior removal of large or multiple fibroids from the wall of the uterus can weaken the walls, making Caesarean section necessary.
* Maternal illness
This includes conditions such as heart disease or diabetes
* Preeclampsia and eclampsia (toxemia of pregnancy)
Symptoms include severe high blood pressure, protein in the urine and seizures

Usually, women undergoing a scheduled Caesarean section are not allowed to have anything to eat or drink after midnight the day before surgery.

1. Just before surgery, an intravenous line (IV) will be placed into a vein. It will be used to deliver medications, fluids and, if needed, a blood transfusion during surgery.

2. Wires connected to heart-monitoring equipment will be attached to your chest, and a blood pressure cuff will be placed on your upper arm. You will be given extra oxygen to breath through a mask, and an oxygen monitoring device will be placed on your finger.

3. Doctors usually prefer to use regional anaesthesia for Caesarean sections. Regional anaesthesia means that you remain awake while an area of your body is made numb for your surgery.

4. Incision will be done when the anaesthesia is working.

5. A low, horizontal skin incision is made in the abdomen at or just above the pubic hairline. Sometimes a vertical incision is required; especially if an emergency Caesarean surgery is done.

6. After the abdomen is opened, the bladder is protected and the uterus is opened. The incision in the uterus also may be horizontal and low in the uterus, or it may be vertical. A vertical incision is preferred when a larger uterine incision is needed. For example, this may be required for twins, a large baby or a baby in a breech position. The bag of waters is broken, the baby is removed, and the umbilical cord is clamped and cut. The time from the beginning of surgery to delivery of the baby generally is less than 10 minutes. Once the baby is delivered, it can take another 30 to 40 minutes to remove the placenta and close the uterus and abdomen with stitches or staples. The entire surgery usually takes just under an hour.

7. Suture

8. If there is no postoperative problems off your room. You might experience nausea and headaches but those will soon go away after some time. Do not be overly worried.

Post operative procedures The doctor will suture the incision after making sure there is no bleeding in the peritoneum and the uterus is firm. He/she will use a sponge to remove any clots inside the abdomen. Different doctors may use different suture style, stitches, staplers, etc

Suturing the incision The bladder catheter will usually be removed within several hours of delivery, and you will be encouraged to walk and begin to drink fluids. If staples were used to close the incision, they generally are removed within one week. Stitches may either dissolve or need to be removed within a week. During the first few weeks after a Caesarean section, you will be told not to carry anything heavier than the baby.

There are several choices for pain relief during labour. These include:

1. Intravenous (I.V.) Medication

Pain-relieving medications that are injected into a vein or muscle will help dull pain but may not eliminate it completely. These IV medications are usually prescribed by your obstetrician. Because they sometimes make both you and your baby sleepy, they are used mainly during early labour.

2. Local Anaesthesia

Other pain-relieving medications may be injected in the vaginal and rectal areas by the obstetrician at the time of delivery. Theses are local anaesthetics, which provide a numbness or loss of sensation in a small area (e.g. during an episiotomy).

3. Epidural anaesthesia

Anaesthetic is injected in the back into the lining of the spinal cord, which makes the mother feel numb from the waist down. This option provides pain relief for vaginal delivery, or allows the mother to stay awake and alert during the baby's birth by caesarean section. Since an epidural may cause the mother's blood pressure to drop, it is not recommended for women with low blood pressure or a bleeding placenta.

Recovery from C-section takes longer than a vaginal birth as it is a major surgery.

I know that there are 3 types of pain relief offered kat DSH. The epidural.. pethidine jab and laughing gas... but my neighbour yang bersalin last year at DSH kate.... derang mmg terus bg epidural kalo c-sec... the problem is....boleh ke with my condition nie? hm...need to ask Dr. Maziah la.... sbb... i have screws at my sacrum or to be exact...my end of spine...hahahahha...x terkene ke nanti? hahhahah. ala...x kesah pon mane2....janji sume selamat...ye tak? ikot jekla pape pon doctor ckp....

oh ya! mama said we need to bring toto utk Kerol Laling nanti hehehheh. kalo x... dia nak tido mane kat sepital? i'm not really sure DSH nie cane... but when I was at PMC mase mule2 balik mesia dulu...they gave mama kusi yg boleh buat utk tido nie....not a sofa bed la....mcm je...senang citer kusi lipat la.. hm...i'm quite sure that they dont provide anything for husbands kat DSH. A friend of mine also brought a toto for her husband mase bersalin kat DSH dulu. so...kene bwk la kot ek? dulu....pernah tunggu mama kat DSH before kawen. dia hospitalised mase tue. tapi... that was ape suite ntah. so adela sofa in that room. mmg best la bilik tue. me? hahahhah. i'm not gonna ask for suite2 nie....tapi kalo ade org nak bayarkan.... u r most welcome! but i really want a single room la... Dr. Maziah's assistant said that rooms at the maternity ward mcm goreng pisang panas. cepat penuh and cepat jugak org discharge. hm..... mintak2 dpt la....i dont mind to share the room kalo xde baby....nie dah ade baby....sian my baby nanti....:(...x comfortable.
