What is a Cesarean
Section Delivery?

A C-Section or Cesarean delivery occurs when a baby is born through a surgical procedure, not the vagina. The surgery requires incisions in the mother’s abdomen and uterus. A C-Section delivery is typically performed when vaginal delivery is not possible or not safe for the mother or the baby. It may be planned beforehand due to certain complications associated with pregnancy or may also be done due to an emergency situation.

A C-Section delivery is usually performed under regional anaesthesia. This numbs the lower half of the mother’s body while allowing her to remain conscious. After the C-Section delivery, the mother is carefully monitored in a recovery room for some time while the baby is sent for her usual post-delivery examinations.

The mother may need to undergo certain tests before the surgery. These tests are done to ensure the safety and health of both the mother and the baby.

The specific tests and evaluations can vary depending on the individual circumstances and medical history of the mother.


Some tests before a cesarean operation include:

In addition to these tests, doctors will also perform a complete physical examination and review the medical history of the mother. Some women may be prescribed additional tests based on their medical history or current complications in the pregnancy.

This will help you pack for the hospital, inform family and friends and prepare yourself mentally for the surgery.
