A vaginal delivery is the most common way to give birth, but what happens when an expecting mother is told to undergo a Cesarean Section? Watch to find out.

Explanation of the C-section

Nervous about childbirth? Here’s an article that’ll help answer your questions about having a Cesarean Section.

A vaginal delivery is the most common way to give birth, however there may be times when a doctor advises an expecting mother to undergo a Cesarean section (C-section) instead. There are a number of reasons as to why this may happen, but whatever the reason may be, most women tend to be more nervous about getting a Cesarean section.

The video below addresses most of the questions that expecting mothers may have about a cesarean section, such as: what are the reasons for such a delivery? What can I do to prepare for the procedure? What happens during the actual cesarean section itself? And how does one recover from the procedure? There is also footage of the procedure being done while delivering a baby in the breech position. Hopefully, the video will be adequate enough to answer your questions, but in case you have more concerns, it is best to bring them up with your OB- GYNE.
