What to Expect During A C-Section Delivery

A C-Section is a major surgery and can be very scary for most moms, it was for me.  I was terrified when the ultrasound technician discovered that my son was breech.  My doctor order an ultrasound to check my amniotic fluid levels once I reached 40 weeks because with my oldest son, my fluid levels dropped after I was full term.  When I saw his head in my ribs during the ultrasound, I immediately knew that I would have to deliver him by c-section.  After a discussion with my doctor, she explained that they could attempt to turn him via manual inversion with an epidural but that I would have a high risk of bleeding, since my placenta attached itself to top of my stomach instead of its normal spot behind the baby.  I felt that my best option was to proceed with a c-section for safety reasons, even though I was very disappointed that I wouldn’t have the delivery that I had been planning for months.
