Positive Planned C-Section Story

Updated: Sep 27, 2019

💙 Positive Planned C-Section Story 💙⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This little baby boy was breech and so a planned section was booked in the diary. It’s important to remember that baby is on the inside and we are on the outside. Baby knows best. There may be a very good reason for baby to be breech. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This fabulous mum to be and I talked a lot in advance about ways in which she could take control of her birth experience. Hypnobirthing gives you the tools so you are fully prepared for any unexpected twists and turns that you may face during the course of labour and embrace it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are a few little tips for c-section births:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👼🏼 Dim lighting at your end of the room which helps the flow of oxytocin⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👼🏼 Music can be played in the background ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👼🏼 Hospital gown can be worn back to front so mum can enjoy skin to skin directly after baby is born ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👼🏼 Screen can be lowered as baby is born⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👼🏼 In the case of a planned section, the mum can sleep with the baby blanket in advance and then wrap the baby in it after being born. This is a clever alternative way to seed the micro biome. If a c-section is unplanned, the mum can lay on the blanket during the operation before baby is born. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I had a really great birth experience. Having a planned section most definitely helped me as I just love being prepared in every way possible. The fasting for 8 hours beforehand was a struggle for me and nearly the worst part of it all being honest! All the nurses and midwives were so helpful and accommodating in every way, so supportive and talked me through everything that they were doing and why. Hypnobirthing is about having a positive birth experience and I didn't think having a caesarean would allow me to do that - but it did. Understanding what Hypnobirthing is about before giving birth definitely encouraged me to ask questions. Being in the know and understanding what's going on is definitely a big contributor to staying calm and in control”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
