(from the Latin caesarea sectio – “royal incision” or, in another way, “royal genera”) is a birth through a lumbar operation, when a woman makes a cut of the abdominal wall of the uterus and then removes the baby. In the old days, this operation was done only in cases of special medical indications. Today, the cesarean section is becoming more frequent and is carried out both for medical reasons and at the request of the mother in childbirth.
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 is performed 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 mother or child.
If a woman gives birth through cesarean section, she can not fully enjoy the joy of motherhood.
This myth has arisen in connection with the fact that a woman who gives birth with a caesarean section is under the influence of anesthesia, and therefore sees nothing and does not feel anything. Everything is really not the case. At the request of a woman, she can be given a special anesthesia (a stab in the back), in which the sensitivity disappears only below the waist, and the mother is in full consciousness of the entire operation. Therefore, a woman will be able to give her love to her child, as soon as he is born.
After cesarean section, a woman can not give birth to a second child naturally.
From the part it is so, but only from the part. If after the first operation there will be two or three years, the probability of giving birth is very high.
You can give birth to no more than three children through a caesarean section.
You can argue with this. If health allows, then you can give birth to as many children as God will send. There are cases when with the help of cesarean section gave birth to five to 12 children. Therefore, everything depends on the individual characteristics of the female body.
Children born with caesarean section are strong and strong.
Controversial statement. Rather, on the contrary, “Caesareans” are born more weak. Experts explain this by the fact that with natural childbirth, a child, passing through the birth canal, experiences some sort of generic stress that “hardens” it for life, and this deprives children who are born through surgery.
To give birth with caesarean section does not hurt at all.
Give birth, it may not hurt, but the “othodnyak” after this operation will last no day, and not even a single week. While with natural childbirth, giving birth though painfully painful, but the pain lasts until the baby’s shoulders appear. And the woman, who gave birth by natural way, wakes up much sooner after the birth period.
Everyone who gives birth after 35 takes a caesarean section.
This is misleading. If there is no special medical evidence, and the health condition of a thirty-five-year-old woman allows her to give birth, she will not talk about this operation.
After caesarean section, a woman becomes forgetful and her hair gets very strong.
The whole thing is not in the operation itself, but in the narcosis that is being done before it. As a rule, after the operation, many women notice that they have severe headaches, the memory becomes “maiden”, and the hair climbs worse than pardon, in a cat. But all these consequences are not inherent in all women, because each of them has its own peculiarities in the body, therefore somebody has these negative signs passing with time, and someone they can accompany all their life.
Doctors force a woman to get out of bed after a few hours after this operation.
Usually, after six hours, the woman giving birth by Caesarean section can already get up. The earlier she manages to get out of bed and walk through the ward, the faster she will recover.
After Caesarean section, a huge horrifying scar remains on the woman’s belly.
Until recently, the trace from the cesarean section actually passed through the entire abdomen and did not look the best. Now the cut in the operation is done on 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 prerequisite for a quick recovery after surgery.
Not exactly. Firstly, the bandage is a strictly private matter for every woman. As a rule, it is necessary in order to quickly return the belly to its “pre-pregnancy” state. Secondly, if after natural births you can afford to wear it literally the next day, then after caesarean section it will not be easy to do, since the seam is very sore and can not be touched. Therefore, the band after the cesarean section is best worn somewhere after a week.
The most common indication for caesarean section is poor vision.
Alas, this is true. Doctors explain this fact by the fact that with natural childbirth, there is a big load on the eyesight (when a woman is pushing), and therefore there is a risk of blindness. Therefore, to avoid this risk, doctors recommend giving birth by caesarean section.
