Caesarean section is preferred according to the wishes of the expectant mother and when the physician deems it medically appropriate. It is especially preferred in cases where normal delivery carries risks for mother and baby. Examples of these risks include breech presentation of the baby in the uterine canal, placental obstruction of the cervix, large size of the baby or multiple pregnancies.
Today, Caesarean section is more preferred. This is because expectant mothers are afraid of normal birth. This is because normal birth takes a long time and because of the effects of normal birth (uterine prolapse, bladder prolapse).
It is a method used in cases where normal delivery cannot be performed for many reasons. Caesarean section is performed in the operating room under anesthesia.
Caesarean section is a surgical operation involving a doctor, anesthesiologist, nurse and allied health personnel. The operation can be performed under epidural or spinal anesthesia.
In the preparation phase of the operation, an intravenous line is opened and the necessary medication is administered through this route, followed by the insertion of a urinary catheter into the bladder. The abdomen is wiped with antiseptic solution from the abdomen to the knees. The baby is then removed from the womb through a surgical incision in the abdomen and uterus. The umbilical cord is cut and the baby is handed over to the nurse and pediatrician. The incisions are then sutured and the delivery is completed.
