Complications during labor: episiotomy, pregnancy and childbirth

The day of the birth of the baby becomes unforgettable for every mother. After all, it is on this day that after nine agonizing months of waiting, she comes face to face with her baby. However, for this you have to go through the difficult process of childbirth.

Complications during my labor

When I started giving birth, everything went quite well. It was painful, but I coped with it very well. Without a single cry, I suffered a period of contractions. When the attempts began, it became even easier for me. Well, finally flashed through my mind. I was sure that quite a bit more, and I would see my little one. But it was not there.

I was laid on the couch and explained in detail what and how to do. I did not lose self-control and optimism, I tried my best. Time passed, but I did not succeed. Finally, after long unsuccessful attempts, the doctor said that I have a high crotch, and this creates a barrier for the baby.

A solution to the problem, according to the doctor, was an episiotomy, or more simply, a surgical incision of the perineum. This cut allowed to expand the output, which means to make it more free for the baby. For me, at that time, priority was placed on the health of the child, so I agreed without hesitation.

Before birth, I had heard about this cut. She knew that in addition to expansion, it allows to reduce the pressure of the pelvic muscles on the head of the fetus and speed up labor. Another argument for the incision was the fear that the tissues could simply tear, and it would heal much longer.

And after the signed consent and local anesthesia, they made a transverse episiotomy, that is, they cut the fabric diagonally. And in the very next attempt, the result was not long in coming, I heard the cry of my baby. It would seem that the worst has ended. But the cut for a long time reminded me of myself.

After the birth of the placenta, the doctor imposed a self-absorbing suture. I did not feel any pain either during the incision or during suturing. Perhaps anesthesia helped, perhaps – the euphoria of the fact that a small native lump lay side by side, and I felt his warmth.

Episiotomy has healed for more than a month. For six weeks, the doctor forbade me to sit, as this could affect the integrity of the suture. I am sure that without this prohibition I would hardly have had a desire to sit down. I was uncomfortable to walk, when I got up I often felt pain. However, walking was necessary, it contributed to healing.

The first three days were banned all bakery products. They could cause constipation, and this again posed a threat to the stitches. Even after the liquid food before the first trip to the toilet, I was advised to use a glycerin candle.

Hygienic procedures played an important role in healing: regular washing and frequent change of pads. Only eight months after the birth, when the gynecologist from the antenatal clinic told me that everything had healed well, I calmed down.

In my opinion, episiotomy is a possible solution to some complications that arise during childbirth. Yes, it is far from pleasant and long reminds of itself. But now, when everything is over, I am sure that it was thanks to her that my childbirth was quite easy and ended with a good result.
