Caesarean section (from Lat. Caesarea sectio - "royal incision" or, in other words, "royal birth") is childbirth through abdominal surgery, when a woman in labor is made an incision in the abdominal wall of the uterus and the baby is removed from there. In the old days, this operation was done only in cases of special medical indications. Nowadays, caesarean section is becoming more and more common and is carried out both for medical reasons and at the request of the woman in labor.
This operation is dangerous for a woman and a child. Any surgical intervention carries a risk to human life and health, but usually this operation takes place without any complications. In rare cases, it can be fatal, but the cause of death is not the operation itself, but the poor health of the woman in labor or the child.
If a woman gives birth through a caesarean section, then she will not be able to fully enjoy the joy of motherhood. This myth arose due to the fact that a woman giving birth by cesarean section is under the influence of anesthesia, and therefore does not see or feel anything. In fact, this is not at all the case. At the request of the woman, she can be given a special anesthesia (an injection in the back), in which the sensitivity disappears only below the waist, and the woman in labor is fully conscious of the entire operation. Therefore, a woman will be able to give her love to a child as soon as he is born.
After a caesarean section, a woman will not be able to give birth to a second child naturally. This is partly true, but only partly. If after the first operation two or three years pass, then the probability of giving birth is quite high.
A caesarean section can give birth to no more than three children. You can argue with that. If health permits, then you can give birth to as many children as God sends. There are cases when with the help of a cesarean section from five to 12 children were born. Therefore, it all depends on the individual characteristics of the female body.
Babies born by cesarean section are strong and sturdy. Controversial statement. On the contrary, the "Caesarites" are born weaker. Experts explain this by the fact that during natural childbirth, the child, passing through the birth canal, experiences some kind of birth stress, which "hardens" him for life, and this is deprived of children who are born through an operation.
Having a cesarean section doesn't hurt at all. It may not be painful to give birth, but the "withdrawal" after this operation will last not a single day, or even a week. While during natural childbirth, although it is excruciatingly painful to give birth, the pain lasts until the baby's shoulders appear. And a woman who gave birth naturally comes to her senses much faster after the birth period.
Anyone who gives birth after 35 is given a cesarean section. It's a delusion. If there are no special medical indications for that, and the state of health of a thirty-five-year-old woman allows her to give birth herself, then there will be no talk about this operation.
After a cesarean section, a woman becomes forgetful and her hair grows a lot. The whole point is not in the operation itself, but in the anesthesia that is done before it. As a rule, after the operation, many women notice that they have severe headaches, the memory becomes "girlish", and hair climbs worse than, sorry, a cat. But all these consequences are not inherent in all women, because each of them has its own characteristics in the body, therefore, for some, these negative signs disappear over time, and for someone they can accompany their whole life.
Doctors force the woman to get out of bed several hours after this operation. Usually, after six hours, the woman who has given birth by caesarean section can already get up. The sooner she can get out of bed and walk around the room, the faster her recovery process will go.
After a caesarean section, a huge, terrifying scar remains on the woman's abdomen. Until recently, the mark from a cesarean section really passed through the entire abdomen and did not look the best. Now the incision during the operation is made along the bikini line, so the seam does not exceed 10 cm in length and is not noticeable even if the woman is in an open swimsuit.
Wearing a bandage is a must for a quick recovery from surgery. Not certainly in that way. First, the bandage is a purely personal matter for every woman. As a rule, it is necessary in order to quickly return the stomach to its "pre-pregnant" state. Secondly, if after a natural birth you can afford to wear it literally the next day, then after a cesarean section it will not be easy to do, since the seam is very painful and it is impossible to touch it. Therefore, it is best to wear a bandage after a cesarean section somewhere after a week.
The most common indication for a caesarean section is poor vision. Alas, this is true. Doctors explain this fact by the fact that during natural childbirth there is a great load on vision (when a woman is pushing), and therefore there is a risk of going blind. Therefore, to avoid this risk, doctors recommend giving birth by caesarean section.
