Emergency caesarean

It often happens that the birth that we had imagined in the end does not go quite like this ... we who dreamed of a water labor or try all the sweet ways to accompany our child at birth we suddenly find ourselves under the knife for an emergency cesarean. Sensations, feelings and thoughts of mothers who have passed us directly from the voice of community moms of.

When pregnancy is physiological and nothing seems to give a sign that something will go wrong it is even more difficult to amortize and the experience of a Caesarean section decided at the last minute, it can also be traumatic; but what are the conflicting feelings that invade the soul at certain moments? Is the bitterness stronger or the thought that our little one must be helped to be born?





Post cesarean: everything you need to know

The first to tell is Anto and Gio, little planet recently registered in the forum, he tells us about when his Giovanni was born: "It started as a natural labor, contractions started around 5 in the morning on the day of the DP one every 5 minutes. I take a shower calmly and go to the hospital.

The contractions go on all day but the dilation is slow, when I attack the monitor (twice sun throughout the day) I notice that during the contraction the heartbeat of my baby drops to around 90 and I start to worry, they tell me, however, that that is not the baby's heartbeat but that it is the sensor that moves and detects my heartbeat ... oh well. 8 pm arrives and changes the shift of midwives and gine, they hang me up for the third time on the monitor and tell me that if we want to accelerate the birth they will put me a little oxytocin, I think about it for a moment and with my husband we decide for oxytocin.

They transfer me to the delivery room and attach the drip and the constant monitor, the midwife immediately realizes that something is wrong: the baby's heartbeat under contraction drops to 90 and goes into fetal distress. Immediately they think that this is due to oxytocin and they detach it, then it may be due to the position that does not get enough oxygen to the baby, then I do 3 contractions standing up straight suffering like a beast, but the situation does not change. only at 5 o'clock dilation and it was 10 in the evening.

Then they tell me that the child is in suffering and I point out that it has been going on like this all day! I get scared and, with an ugly face, I say to gine: "Get it out of me now !!!!!" She tells me that there is still room for waiting, that the risks are not many, but I don't care, I demand the cesarean. We arrive at the agreement that, after the caesarean that they were preparing in the operating room (it was the night between Sunday and Monday and there was no staff to do two together) he would return to check me and if nothing changed he would give me the caesarean, and so it was; at 00.44 the next day my John was born, 3.800 gr x 50 cm.
The reason for fetal distress? Giovanni was in posterior rotation of the occiput (they noticed this when they pulled him out) and then he went into pain. Luckily my mouse had no consequences !!! we were very lucky !!!! "
