Problems with Cesarean Delivery | Purpose, Procedure & Risks

C-section, also known as cesarean delivery, is a procedure where a doctor gives birth to a baby through a hole in the mother's abdomen and uterus instead of through the vagina.

In some cases, a C-section may be pre-planned if a woman has some complications during pregnancy. Doctors can give advance notice to reduce the risk for both mother and baby.

Generally, cesarean delivery is avoided at 39 weeks of gestation or before full term. However, if there are any complications, the baby is delivered by cesarean delivery before 39 weeks.

What is a cesarean?

Cesarean section (C-section) is a type of surgery performed on the abdomen of a pregnant mother during childbirth. 

Cesarean delivery is usually performed if the baby fails to give birth according to natural rules. 

 Although it is a dangerous treatment, it is possible to give birth to two children in a row or have two caesareans. But it also has the potential to have serious side effects.


Why a cesarean section is performed?

Cesarean delivery is performed when a pregnant woman is in critical condition or normal delivery is not possible. If the patient has had two caesareans before or there is a problem with the patient's position or any other problem,

E.g.-

1. 14 hours have been tried for normal delivery of the patient. But in no way did the baby's head go down through the vagina.

2. The patient is weak enough.

3. The condition of the child is dangerous, that is, if the child is at risk of death. Cesarean delivery is done.

Side effects of cesarean delivery

All operations have side effects. Anesthesia is given for the operation. As a result, the patient's blood pressure decreases. In some cases, heart problems occur. 

 Or, if the patient has a pre-existing disease such as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney problems, etc., then cesarean delivery is risky.

 There are advantages as well as risks. Because if normal delivery is not possible the only way is cesarean. In this case, the patient has to bear fewer labor pains. 

 When the water inside the uterus of the patient is broken, there is no way for normal delivery. 

 However, if the position of the baby in the womb is abnormal or the umbilical cord of the baby is too tight, then a cesarean section is necessary.


Health Risks and Solutions in Cesarean Delivery

If the patient has to decide on a cesarean operation. There, one should stop the operation for fear of risk and be aware of the risk to life. 

 However, it is good to know what kind of risks there may be and even then most of the problems can be avoided through appropriate measures.

Many times the baby's position is a little problematic or horizontal. This condition is called transverse tee in medical language. 

 Due to this condition, a cesarean section has to be done. The risk of having a cesarean section after taking proper precautions is greatly reduced, 

For example, if the blood pressure continues to drop, the blood pressure is normalized with saline and some medications. 

 If there is more blood during the operation, blood has to be given. If the uterus, urinary bladder, and other surrounding organs, such as the omentum, are firmly attached to the esophagus due to adhesions during surgery; 

 In that case, you have to work very carefully. Tightly planted areas have to be removed slowly with patience.

If it is too late to get the baby out, the baby may have difficulty breathing. If the flower is at the bottom, it is called Placenta previa in medical language.

 Even if the bleeding cannot be stopped, the uterus has to be removed. However, the number of such uterine abortions is negligible. There is nothing to fear.


The Islamic view of the cesarean section
