What happens during a c-section?

Baby! You and your doctor will determine what delivery method is best based on your pregnancy. If a c-section is needed, you will go to the operating room. You will likely get a spinal which will make you numb. And then an incision is made above your pubic bone, and the baby is delivered through that incision. After the baby comes out, your doctor will sew you back together.
