A Cesarean section, or c-section, is a surgical delivery of a baby when a vaginal delivery isn't safe. In the United States, about one out of every three births happen via c-section. Dr. Kompal Gadh at the Advanced OBGYN Institute, located in Weston and Pembroke Pines, Florida, are board-certified obstetricians who have delivered hundreds of babies successfully, including many via c-section. Women who suspect they may need a c-section can trust the Advanced OBGYN Institute team to get them and their baby through this procedure safely.
A c-section is a surgery that allows for the birth of a baby through the abdomen instead of through the vaginal canal. Dr. Gadh will perform a c-section when vaginal birth is too risky for the mother or the baby due to complications.
Because c-sections are major surgical procedures, they're only used when medically necessary. Some conditions that may cause a c-section to be necessary include:
Women who wonder if they will need a c-section should discuss their concerns with Dr. Gadh.
A c-section is a major surgical procedure, and therefore carries all of the risks of a major abdominal surgery. These risks include:
C-sections pose minimal risks for the baby, but some of the helpful flora that the baby's digestive system needs won't be delivered as would be during a vaginal birth.
Women who are preparing for a natural delivery, only to find that they need a c-section, may feel unprepared.
It's important for women to realize that there is no right or wrong way to delivery a healthy baby, and if the baby is born healthy and strong, then the birth outcome is positive. Preparing or c-section with the right mindset can help reduce the emotional struggles some women face after this type of birth experience.
Dr. Gadh will discuss surgery preparation with patients prior to the c-section. Other things a woman can do include:
