If you have a scheduled Cesarean (or need one unexpectedly during labor), do you know your options?
Can your partner or doula join you in the Operating Room? Perhaps you want specific music or to wear your own clothing--could the surgeon show you baby before they are placed on the warming table? When necessary, Cesarean sections save lives.
I appreciated this article, going into details about Cesarean births and your options. There is a lot of debate around this, but little in the way of tangible information. This article is detailed but perfect.
"The baby is only weighed when surgery is finished, and given to the partner while the mother is transferred to her bed."
