Caesarean birth

Not every woman can have a vaginal birth. This is usually due to health problems of either mother or baby. If this is the case, a caesarean birth is necessary or recommended.
Caesarean section is the removal of the neonate and the placenta through a surgical incision in the abdomen.

Some medical reasons for a caesarean section can be identified by the doctor during pregnancy and the operation can be planned, others may not occur until the birth.

Medical reasons for a caesarean section include abnormal foetal presentation, multiple pregnancies, heart conditions, respiratory diseases, orthopaedic disorders, eye problems and infections.

If there is no medical reason not to do it, the mother can cuddle her baby in the operating theatre and breastfeed them when they need it.

Having a caesarean birth does not mean that subsequent pregnancies cannot end in a vaginal birth.
