Natural/Vaginal Caesarean Section

Out of 4, only one woman has a caesarean section, while the ‘natural caesarean’ or ‘gentle caesarean’ is gaining popularity.

The natural caesarean is a gentle surgery that offers mothers who undergo surgical delivery the chance to the women-centered. It allows the parents to witness the slow and gentle birth, find out the baby’s gender, and enjoy skin contact with assured safety and sterility.

A natural caesarean increases the bonding between mother and child, leading to easier breastfeeding and calmer infants.

Caesarean birth impairs maternal satisfaction, reduces the breastfeeding, and the delivery remains fixed in surgical and resuscitative rituals that delay parental contact.

How does natural caesarean work?

The obstetrician makes an incision in the uterus; the team with him lowers the surgical drape and raises the table’s head, enabling the mother to see what is going on.

When the baby’s head comes out from the incision, she starts breathing from the air using the nose or mouth, but still attached to the placenta.

The baby’s body will remain in utero for about a few minutes, as the pressure will help push out the lungs fluid.

If she cries, the obstetrician eases her shoulder, which she starts to move.

After observing the vital signs, the obstetrician will support the baby so that the mother can see her. The obstetricians also support the heads of the baby as she is expelled through a uterine contraction.

As the baby is born and wellbeing is confirmed, the cord is clamped and cut, and the baby is passed to the midwife, placing the baby on mother’s chest covering her with the warm towel.

The anesthetic assistant will clear the maternity clothing from the chest, and the midwife positions herself at the top of the bed.

The midwife gets the baby directly from the surgeon to prevent contamination. The woman shouldn’t be allowed to reach out for the baby, as there is a risk while touching the obstetrician. 

After the application of plastic clamp, the partner can cut the remaining cord if he wants. The labeling is done, and vitamin K is administrated in the baby on the mother’s chest. In the presence of midwife, the baby is adjusted to the position so as he/she can begin to suckle.

The baby’s weight is checked as soon as the surgery finishes and given to the partner while the mother is shifted to the bed. Skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding continue with the baby in the same position and as soon as the surgery ends.
