The Possibility Of Giving Birth By Caesarean During Twin Pregnancy?
On January 19th, we are asked to be referred back to the hospital. If we ask for it directly in Ceasar, can we or no?
Hello Agustina Vee, thank you for the question.
Sectio caesaria (SC) is an operation to remove the baby by opening the mother's abdominal wall. This action must be carried out on medical indication, usually because there is a disruption in the mother, fetus, or both that includes problems of his, birth canal, or fetus. Fetal disorders that cause SC indications such as fetal distress, malpresentation (the lowest part of the fetus is not the head), large babies, infections, congenital abnormalities, umbilical cord abnormalities, blood disorders (decreased platelets), or because there is a history of birth trauma. Maternal indications for example there are emergencies in the mother such as continuous bleeding due to uterine atony or uterine rupture, previous history of SC, pelvic anatomic abnormalities such as narrow pelvis, pelvic deformity, etc., there are abnormal masses or lumps in the birth canal or urinary tract, and the presence of cardiac abnormalities and blood vessels. Indications of the mother and fetus that cause SC such as the placenta lying below cover the birth canal, the placenta comes off prematurely, the pelvis is narrow, post-term pregnancy, there are contraindications to normal labor, or fail after an attempted vaginal delivery. This SC can cause undesired complications if done without medical indications, such as infection, sepsis, urinary or gastrointestinal disorders, complications due to anesthetic drugs, and others. Therefore, you should consult with your doctor about the delivery method that will be performed, the doctor will conduct a question and answer session, physical examination, and some supporting examinations if needed such as laboratories, ultrasound, and others. The doctor will assess whether vaginal delivery can be done or not, if it can't and there is an indication for the SC the doctor will perform an operation. We recommend that you check your pregnancy regularly to the doctor, especially if it is already in labor, 37 weeks or more.
Thus, hopefully useful.
