In this episode, I do an extended q&a session-taking questions that you guys have given me about c-sections!
Here are the questions we go over!
- What are some reasons why a c-section is warranted?
- What can I expect when I go the hospital for my scheduled c-section?
- Can you still do skin to skin?
- Can you be awake in an emergency c-section if you haven’t had an epidural/spinal block?
- How long after my c-section can I start massaging my scar?
- If you have an anterior placenta- how does the surgeon know where the placenta is before they cut?
- Why can’t I eat or drink before the c-section?
- Do they cut through your old scar for repeat c-sections?
- Any tips or tricks to distract me so I can handle the spinal?
- Why did I vomit so much during my c-section? Will that happen again?
- Why do your feet swell up again after your c-section?
- Can a c-section affect your milk supply?
