Is there any correlation between being a cesarean section baby and future delivery?

Is there any correlation between being a cesarean section baby and future delivery?

Increased C/S risk.: As our society is moving to later reproduction and more assisted conceptions for subfertility in the midst of an obesity epidemic (with concurrent diabetes mellitus and hypertension morbidities), I expect the overall c-section to keep rising for the foreseeable future. If you were born via c-section you were probably too big for your mother's pelvis and that's likely to recur when you deliver. Read more

Following 24 hrs. Of delivery, I had a cesarean. My newborns right arm has less strength than the other. Why?

Following 24 hrs. Of delivery, I had a cesarean. My newborns right arm has less strength than the other. Why?

Brachial palsy?: Sounds like injury to the nerves of the arm. In cases where there was csections delivery, it is often due to the arm being meal positioned in uterine, causing pulling or traction on the nerves. A large percentage regain strength without intervention, but I always recommend an evaluation by a physical therapist trained in these injuries. Talk to your pediatrician. Read more

Taking Clexane from week 8 till now 29 due to mthfr mutation, is it okay to have normal delivery or I have to do cesarean & when can I stop inj it?

Taking Clexane from week 8 till now 29 due to mthfr mutation, is it okay to have normal delivery or I have to do cesarean & when can I stop inj it?

Doctors instructions: Clarify with your Obgyn the treatment plan for your pregnancy. It is not typical to deliver via c section simply because of a MTHFR mutation. The doctor may want you to continue the medication until delivery and even after. They may ask you to stop it 24 hrs before delivery if regional anesthesia is planned. Read more

Can I totally refuse a forceps/vacuum delivery? I've done myresearch and I don't want them. Prefer cesarean instead. Can doctor override this decision

Can I totally refuse a forceps/vacuum delivery? I've done myresearch and I don't want them. Prefer cesarean instead. Can doctor override this decision

No, they cannot: But if baby in distress, u wanna take the time for section, minutes make the difference. A kiwi vacuum is easy, not many are doing forceps because of tears and trauma. You can refuse operative delivery but a 1 minute application of a vacuum device could save u from a big surgery or your baby from hypoxia. Good luck. Read more

How can cesarean delivery be a possible risk factor for ttn or respiratory distress syndrome?

How can cesarean delivery be a possible risk factor for ttn or respiratory distress syndrome?

Not squeezed: Normal vaginal delivery squeezes some of the fluid in the lung spaces out during passage through the birth canal. C-sections alows that fluid to remain and thereby can cause a poor exchange of oxygen. Ttn uaually resolves on its own with supportive care. Ttn can also happen with a normal delivery but less often.

Delivery by cesarean section is one of the predisposing factors of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, why? And how?

Delivery by cesarean section is one of the predisposing factors of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome, why? And how?

?? RDS??: I would agree more cs babies have respiratory pbs than regular delivery but the issue is ttn (transient tachypnea of the newborn) not rds. A trip down the birth canal helps squeeze some of the lung fluid out before birth, which does not happen for cs. About 10% of cs will have to work hard to clear that fluid & may require o2 & special care in the process. It usually clears in < 48hr. Read more

Can implantaion occur sooner when a tube is shortend I have had 8 cesarean deliveries and my sixth resulted from a ruptured uterus and burst bothtubes?

Can implantaion occur sooner when a tube is shortend I have had 8 cesarean deliveries and my sixth resulted from a ruptured uterus and burst bothtubes?

Doubtful...but: Time to implantation won't necessarily be shorter in the scenario you describe; however, I would be worried about an ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus) if you suffered damage to your fallopian tubes during the uterine rupture. If you get pregnant again, you should see your Ob right away to make sure the pregnancy isn't in a tube instead of the uterus. Best wishes! Read more
