What is a cesarean delivery?
It is the delivery of a child through the incision of the abdomen and uterus
It is one of the most common operations. The cesarean section increased dramatically in recent years, due to women's preference for this operation in some cases, and other times for reasons of fetal health, as the proportion of sonar examinations increased, which indirectly led to a rise in the cesarean section.
Also, due to the development of antibiotics and anesthesia, this process is safer than before. It is also worth noting that due to the development of birth control methods in the modern era, women have become less likely to have an unwanted pregnancy.
Children are in the same family for relatively few, preferring cesarean delivery over vaginal reproduction.
Reasons for a cesarean delivery:
The choice of women for this process, as we mentioned
An increase in the number of twins due to IVF operations
If the woman had given birth in Caesarea in previous pregnancies
The risk of a cesarean delivery:
As mentioned earlier, cesarean section is now much safer and more common. But it does have some drawbacks
The rate of bleeding may be more compared to normal childbirth
The pain of the operation is greater
The hospital stay is longer
The recovery period is longer
Increasing the adhesion of the placenta to the bottom of the uterus in a future pregnancy, which in turn can lead to certain problems.
The rate of fertility by a second cesarean section becomes higher
The possibility is slight that the child will need oxygen therapy for some time
Probability of hernia and pain in the fissure for a long time after the operation
Are there benefits to cesarean delivery?
It is difficult to determine the benefits from studies !!
But there are potential benefits from it:
If the operation was planned, then it is definitely safer than if the operation was carried out in an emergency situation, the woman would be aware in advance of the time of the operation in order to be able to facilitate her personal affairs, for example, maternity leave, or coordination with relatives to help the newborn.
