A Cesarean section (C-section) is surgery to deliver a baby. It is a surgical technique involved to deliver one or more babies when women happened to face unexpected problems during delivery. Most common problems faced by women include Position of the baby, Signs of Distress in the baby or if any health problems faced by the mother.
C-sections are commonly seen among women delivering more than one baby. Indeed, this surgery is relatively safe for mother and baby but it is still a major surgery which carries risks. It also takes longer time than usual delivery to recover from a C-section than from vaginal birth.
A caesarean section is usually carried out under regional anaesthetic, where the lower part of your body is numbed. It usually takes 30-45 minutes. Some caesarean sections are performed under general anaesthetic.
