So, I know that the subject is somewhat controversial because there are those who argue hard for normal childbirth, but let’s talk a little about cesarean delivery. Cesarean delivery is the most used for some good years here, some out of necessity and others for convenience. This type of delivery is a little debatable when it comes to the occasion when it is applied, but come and agree that there are many situations in which it is more than valid, there are mothers who did it for fear of feeling pain, others because they would not be able to having your children by normal birth for some other reason, and know that cesarean delivery saves many lives in an emergency.
But the purpose of the article is not to dispute but to clarify to the mothers that they still have a certain fear or have never had a cesarean section. My 3 children were born by cesarean delivery, the first for emergency in case of fetal distress, the second for being a huge baby and having had a previous cesarean and the last for wanting to have a tubal ligation.
In the 3 times the procedure was the same, I will describe more or less: First, the access is applied, a gel catheter in the vein preferably in the hand to facilitate the movement of the mother after surgery, it is through him that all the serum enters with the medication in time of the procedure. After access to anesthesia, and don’t be fooled by the pain, the pain is relative to the hand you apply, and the patient’s pain tolerance, in my 3 deliveries it was very different, one anesthetic application from the other, at first I didn’t feel anything , in the second I felt a very heavy weight on the doctor’s hand and in the third it was like taking a normal injection.
After anesthesia, the birth begins, the Obstetrician doctor begins to cut the 7 layers that exist in the body of the person and when it reaches the uterus, he with greater care and dexterity pulls the thin skin of the uterus and cuts it gently to be able to remove the baby . After birth, the uterus is cleaned and all the waste from the birth is removed and a medication is applied to the uterus to contract and expel everything that remains, this is the postpartum blood. The suturing of the 7 layers takes about 30 minutes or so, depending on the experience of the doctor and the assistant, it may take less time.
Of course it is an invasive procedure, it is a surgery like any other, but if mommy is well and if she did the prenatal care correctly and all the exams there is no reason to be afraid because she feels absolutely nothing !! Technically it is like that, but we moms see this moment with a lot of magic, there a child is born and with it a mom, however many children we have each pregnancy and each birth is unique!
Well, the postoperative period was also different for the 3 surgeries that I did, in the first it was quiet, in the second I just felt a bigger discomfort but the third was more complicated, but because I had ligation and the doctor trimmed the skin who was in surplus, let’s say he took advantage of the anesthesia and reduced the pack that bothered me so much. Taking the medication was very gentle, the three times I took cephalexin (antibiotic) as a prevention, but it depends a lot on the doctor who does the delivery, whether or not you need to prescribe it. Usually, post-surgical anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs are used, such as the lyser, which does not interfere with breastfeeding.
Lately it is known that the mother can and must have a companion at the time of delivery, the daddies who are willing and have stomachs lol, will never forget that moment so unique and magical and if the maternity refuses it is in the law ‘Federal Law nº 11.108 assert the right! Remember that regardless of the type of delivery you choose, or the need that exists at the moment the important thing is the well-being of mom and baby, everything going well with both is what matters most.
Following a video of the step by step and if you are afraid of blood, or if you are easily impressed, I advise not to see it ok?
Now the video of the birth of my daughter Melissa, everything was very quiet.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
