Many women during pregnancy think about the process of childbirth. With age, the fear of natural childbirth grows, and often women are asked to do a cesarean section. If necessary?
My first birth
During the first pregnancy, I was sure that there would be no problems with childbirth at all. The only thing that bothered me, how do I know that the birth begins? All around asserted: You will not confuse with anything !.
Perhaps, here I waited for them …
One evening I started going to the bathroom more often, at night I practically didn’t sleep, I thought that very soon the water would flow away … In the morning, nothing has changed, just lower abdominal pain. By lunchtime, my husband decided to call an ambulance.
They called an ambulance and took me to the hospital. After the examination, the doctor stated that I practically had no water left and I need to urgently cause labor.
Put the system. Only four hours later, I felt contractions and immediately very strong. She gave birth quickly enough, almost did not feel pain. Everything was foggy. I was immediately shown my baby, and after ten minutes had already given her to feed.
Here it is maternal happiness.
My daughter was not calm, but she did not cry. From birth, she was interested in considering everything. She began to crawl early, and then went quickly. We always passed the commission easily. All vaccinations were done on time. She has a fairly strong immunity, she almost does not get sick.
It seemed to me that everything is so simple for me. I was just lucky with the baby. And then the news – I’m pregnant again.
The second pregnancy was easy, the only thing that worried – the wrong position of the fetus. On each ultrasound, the child did not want to show the floor and firmly sat on the priest. At the last examination, the doctor said that the baby had turned over, soon the birth would begin. Gave direction to the hospital.
In the maternity hospital, they refused to place me in the hospital. There are no seats! I was sent home to wait for the birth, it’s good that we live not far from the maternity hospital. And we began to wait …
When I went to 41 weeks of pregnancy, I again went to the hospital. I still put. The doctor examined and was horrified. The fruit sits on the pope.
Urgently sent to the ultrasound, where it was confirmed …
Cesarean section was prescribed in two days. The next day, in the evening, I began to pull my stomach … The nurse sent for inspection. It turned out that the opening of the neck is already on 4 fingers. Have an emergency operation.
From the very first minutes that a child was born, I realized that everything was not so … About the fact that I have a daughter, I learned about 15 minutes after she was born. The first minutes she was silent ….
The first two nights we were not together. She is in child resuscitation, I am in an adult …. It was very hard, it was brought only to feed. The nurse said that she was crying all the time, and she often naughty with me. Not enough milk … Began to give lure, became more calm.
Problems after cesarean section
We arrived home in 10 days. The first days everything was like in a dream. Thanks to my mom. She took leave and every day was with us, leaving only when her husband returned from work.
Caesarean section is abdominal surgery, with all the ensuing consequences. After the operation, the stomach hurts much more, it is very difficult to move, but you still have to care for your baby. We have to drink strong pain pills that are bad for the child. After all, medicines are transmitted to the baby through milk.
Caesarean section affects the child?
All doctors believe that the child simply needs to go through the birth canal. I agree with them.
Only with my second daughter did I learn what colic and intestinal problems are in a baby. Doctors in one voice claimed that this is the effect of antibiotics. And injections of antibiotics must be made after any surgical intervention.
Every day, as scheduled, my daughter threw hysterics. Nothing helped. We did a massage, we put warm diapers on the tummy, dill it with water. But colic lasted almost 4 months.
Another problem was torticollis. They did massage, went through three courses, put on a tire. Fortunately, by the age of six months we got rid of this disease.
The younger daughter is much more sick, she has a weak immunity.
Natural childbirth or cesarean section?
I have a girlfriend who, because of the fear of the birth itself, insisted on the operation. She had a daughter. There were the same problems: colic, constipation, frequent colds.
If they ask me such a question, the answer is only natural. If there are no complications and everything is in order, then there is no need to interfere with the natural processes.
