Babies Born By Cesarean Section
Too soon : It's too soon to determine the need for a c section at 33 weeks. Your baby could still change its position over the next 5-6 weeks. If your baby remains transverse or becomes breech late in pregnancy, you will need a c section. However, it is simply too early to tell right now. Discuss this with your obgyn. Good luck! ...Read more
Rarely: Rarely does this happen where babies have congenital defects that are severe enough that they either neurological impair the baby and prevent movement or simply get in the way of a baby being able to flip on its own. This is a rare cause of breech though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends On Control: There is no single digit answer you can apply to an individual patient. One brazillian study in 2011 found that 14% of 400 women delivered prematurely, but the rate really depends on how well the mother controls her disease, other issues like preeclampsia, and the reason for delivery (poor control can cause other problems for the mom/baby that could require a cesarean section before 38 weeks). ...Read more
Usually not a proble: Babies transit a birth canal that often has a variety of germs including candida.It is ingested as are other germs and will eventually become part of the germs that normally populate the intestines.Rare kids will have an extensive candida skin rash at birth but most do not.The sugar in frequent feedings increase chances of oral candida & diapers trap moisture & contribute to candida diaper rash. ...Read more
What is the incidence of mixed delivery (one twin delivered vaginally, one twin delivered via c-section)?
About 4% but rising: The most common reasons for c section of a second twin are heart rate problems and the baby coming down in a position other than head first. Many doctors used to be willing to deliver a second twin either butt first or by the feet, but few still have much experience in doing this. There is also a risk of injury to the nerves of the arm or learning disability in any baby that is born breech. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
26 y/o 2 natural vaginal births, >2hrs of labor, 3rd was csection due to baby being 4wks past due. Transverse incision. Should i think about a vbac?
Umbilical cord prolapse caused a 30 second lack of oxygen to the baby during delivery. Will the baby be okay?
Only 30 ???: I am reluctant to accept the initial statement as realistic. Once a cord begins to prolapse it can produce an intermittent but complete obstruction to blood flow that may add up to a significant o2 deficit over time.I'm not sure anyone can estimate the insult accurately.If only 30, probably no long term effect. If low 1/5/10 min apgars and seizures in the 1st 24hr,it was longer and more problemat ...Read more
Too many to list: If you mean what could be wrong, the list is endless. We are each thought to carry recessive genes for up to 4 metabolic mistakes, stuff that may only show up in 1/50,000 births. If we have kids with a close relative, it is more likely one of those defects will show up. There are in excess of 250 metabolic problems (like PKU) known. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Babies can be delivered vaginally even over 10 lbs. Some larger babies may cause difficulty with delivery however. Do not rely on the estimated size to determine if the baby can be delivered vaginally as size estimates in the 3rd trimester can be inaccurate. Rely on your obstetrician's experience! ...Read more
