Cesarean section: minuses and pluses

In Caesarean section, there are, of course, pluses. The main one is the safe birth of a child in such a state that when the operation is canceled, both the mother and the child risk their lives. That is, when the cesarean section is carried out for medical reasons, the issue of minuses should be closed. There is simply no other choice.

The advantages of the operation are



However, there is an opinion that it is quick and not painful to give birth with the help of Caesarean section. At the same time for the woman and baby are excluded birth pains, therefore, it is preferable to use caesarean during childbirth.

Yes, this operation is performed with anesthesia, but after the operation the pain is much more powerful than after vaginal delivery and its duration is longer. Even with difficult births, fraught with ruptures or cuts in vaginal delivery, the pain is still less than in the operating wound.

The condition after cesarean section is



Concerning the speed of delivery, the situation should be considered in a complex. And if the operation itself takes less time than with natural childbirth, then the time limit after it lasts much longer. It is necessary to survive the departure from anesthesia, the healing of the operating wound, the pain, the recovery period due to blood loss, in addition, the danger of infectious complications is higher here. More often there are difficulties with the arrival of milk, there are restrictions in movement, there is a prohibition to raise a child and carry it on his hands when he cries. These are significant complications of the postoperative period.

In addition, one should take into account and add to the list of shortcomings the fact that after a cesarean section the mother will not be able to manage herself with the child for a long time. Usually for the first month you need to find a nanny, or at least provide a constant for someone from your family.

A clear minus of cesarean section of this operation is the psychological state of the mother, which is explained by the emerging hormonal problems. There is no signal to the body about the successful completion of labor, that's the feeling of incompleteness and wrongness of what is happening. In this case, the uterus is not as actively contracted as it is after vaginal delivery, which is further aggravated if the woman does not feed the baby with the breast.

Until recently, there were serious problems with breastfeeding, which is also a big minus of cesarean section. Most of the children after cesarean section were on artificial feeding, but now the situation is changing.

If the planned cesarean section was normal, and epidural anesthesia was applied, the mother immediately receives the baby for feeding. This contributes to the reduction of the uterus, and the normalization of breastfeeding, this is a big plus for the psychological state of the mother and, of course, very useful for the baby. The use of modern antibiotics no longer requires the renunciation of breastfeeding.

In other words, when there is a strict need, the cesarean section is a salvation for both the mother and the child. However, in the absence of evidence, to go to this operation only because of fear of childbirth, doctors categorically advise.
