Could It Be 10 Openings But The Baby Can’t Come Out?
In the afternoon, I want to ask about Prosea giving birth normally. Last week I just gave birth, this is my first child. At that time on the 8th morning, suddenly mucous blood came out from my v, then I went to the hospital and only opened 1, so I went home and came back the next morning to check again, it turned out to have opened 4, it was around 1 o’clock. ill, finally arrived at 8 pm, the opening was already 8. 10 minutes later, the opening was already 10. The nurse said my child’s head was still floating, then he broke my amniotic fluid. Suddenly the doctor suggested surgery, because he was afraid my child’s heart would not be strong. I want to ask, is it true that if it has 10 openings, is there the possibility of something like this happening? And the amniotic fluid must be broken? Please help with the explanation, thank you
Hello good afternoon Gisela.
There are several conditions that can be an indication for cesarean section (SC) operation, even though a mother has experienced an opening (complete opening). Among them:
Cephalo-Pelvic Disproportion (CPD) or in layman's language it is called the narrow pelvis. The condition that explains this condition is the mismatch of the size of the baby's head with the width of the pelvis, so that the baby cannot pass through the birth canal, be it the baby's weight is too large or the mother's pelvis is narrow. Pregnant women who are at risk of experiencing this condition are usually pregnant women who have a height of less than 150 cm. In the condition of CPD, if it is forced to be born normally, it can cause complications, such as pressing the bones of the baby's head, tearing of the uterus, bleeding, etc.
the location of the placenta (placenta) is low (close to the door of the birth canal), so there is a risk of bleeding
advance presentation. What is meant by "facial presentation" is that the fetal head is positioned downward, but the baby's head is maximally deflected, so that the face is pointing toward the door of the birth canal. This condition can only be recognized when labor takes place. This condition can be risky if labor is forced through the normal way because it can cause injury to the headbone and injury to the baby's neck.
Conditions of obstruction / cessation of labor progress, can be due to the conditions above (CPD, facial presentation), maternal fatigue, the baby is entangled in the umbilical cord, etc., resulting in fetal distress. Fetal distress is a condition in which the fetal heart rate is abnormal (very fast, slow, or irregular) which means that the fetus is experiencing "stress" or lack of oxygen. If there is a serious condition for the fetus, then the delivery must be done immediately and completed in order to save the fetus, namely by SC procedure.
Amniotic fluid has many functions, one of which is in childbirth. In a congested labor process, where a complete opening has occurred and the amniotic fluid has not broken by itself, it is best to break the amniotic fluid, because the amniotic fluid can function as a lubricant that can facilitate the process of leaving the baby from the birth canal. This reason may be taken into consideration by doctors / midwives to break the membranes during labor.
If you are still worried or unsatisfied with the possible reasons for having a SC procedure on you, then we suggest that you consult again with the doctor who previously treated you, because he was the one who knew best about your condition at the time of the incident.
Hopefully this helps ma'am, and I hope you will always be healthy for your little family :)
