Should The Catheter Be Used During Labor?
Hello, I want to ask about the installation of a catheter in a normal or cesarean delivery process. I read on the internet he said if later giving birth, there is a catheter installation process … regarding its function and usefulness I quite understand where it goes. But is it mandatory? Is it possible if I request to the doctor / nurse not to be installed a catheter during the birth process? Or is there another option, besides the catheter,? So urinate manually as usual before a normal delivery / cesarean.If possible etc. Etc. To be honest I am horrified by the installation of the catheter this, because I’ve seen my brother put on first (not for labor). Instead of giving birth I was even more stressed out thinking about fear in a catheter … That’s the question from me. Thank you in advance ,.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, a catheter is not a routine procedure in normal labor. As long as the mother can still urinate on her own, the catheter will not be paired. However, if the labor procedure to be performed is a cesarean section, then a urine catheter will most likely be installed. Usually the catheter is placed just before the operation and will be removed as soon as possible after the anesthetic effect disappears and the mother can walk to the toilet by herself.
As with all medical procedures, catheter placement will only be done if there are strong indications for its installation. You may ask the doctor who assisted in your delivery not to be fitted with a catheter during normal labor (if you have a cesarean, you might have no choice), but if there are finally indications of installation during normal labor (for example your bladder is too full to obstruct the process childbirth), the doctor will also continue to recommend catheter placement. You should not be too scared because when you are giving birth, the pain will be felt more in your stomach and vagina. Most likely you will also not feel anything when a urine catheter is paired.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
