Cesarian Delivery or C-Sec Delivery is never the first choice for our gynaecologists in order to bring your baby into this world. Caesarian Delivery means that the Gynaecologist will give an incision on your abdomen to reach your uterus. Once the uterus is exposed, then the doctor will give another incision into your uterus measuring around 4-6 inches to bring the baby out. If the C-Sec is planned in advance then the incision on the abdomen is given horizontally just below the waistline called `bikini incision'. This type of incision is not visible even if you wear indian dresses like Sari or Lehenga and remains hidden under your clothing. However if the mother or the baby is in distress then the incision on the abdomen is given vertically starting from the navel and going 4-6 inches downwards. In this type of incision, the gynaecologist is able to reach the baby faster as compared to the bikini incision. Once the baby is delivered, the incisions are closed using dissolvable stitches or staplers. Dressing is done at the incision site and the patient is put on bed rest for atleast 2 days. The incisions take around 15-20 days for complete healing but could take longer in diabetic moms.
A common perception around the world is that the gynaecologists and the hospitals are pushing for C-Sec Deliveries because they earn more money. This is completely false as the difference between the charges for a normal delivery and Caesarian delivery is just the cost difference on account of extra hospital stay, OT Charges, extra medicines and the anaesthetist fee. So neither the hospital, nor the doctor gains any extra money by going for unnecessary C-section deliveries. The reasons for the Caesarian delivery are both medical and non-medical. Some of the mothers who do not want to go into labour pain caesarean section delivery is the best option for them. Some families believe in auspicious timing for the birth of the baby and they also push for Caesarian delivery. However mostly it is the medical reasons which play a crucial role in deciding the type of the delivery. One of the most important medical reason is the breech position of the baby or the loops of umbilical cord around the neck of the baby. Other medical reasons are heavier baby weight, mother's small pelvis, chronic conditions of the mother, multiple babies, prolonged labour, foetal distress etc.
