When you should start sport after cesarean?

i am pretty sure 6 weeks is the first start of being normal and able to do things again! but your stomach muscles are very weak afterwards so you will have to slwly work them out by jogging and progress to running then your should be strong enough to do whatever it is you love! probably 2 to 3 months honestly!

How long should you waite to have another baby after a C-Section delivery?

Different physicians recommend different amounts of time, but typically, one year after a vaginal delivery or two years after a C-Section delivery is recommended, especially if the woman is going to attempt to have the second baby vaginally (i.e., a VBAC). Recent research suggest a woman should have at least 18 months in between deliveries if she wants to have a vbac.

What do they give you instead of an epidural during a c-section?

Sometimes when someone request a natural birth they will ask them if they would like some Tylenol. They asked my sister if she would like some Tylenol very shortly befor she started pushing. I wouldn't think that Tylenol would have that much of an affect when you compare it to the E shot (i DONT KNOW HOW TO SPELL IT).

Answer: I've had 2 c-sections and I had Morphine directly shot into my back with a needle each time. I'll be doing it again in 4 months and I assume it will be the same.

What are the chances of viginal birth next time if you had a c seccsion first time?

There are two major types of C-Sections. With the older style (classical incision), the uterine incision is from top to bottom. With the newer style, (low cervical transverse) the incision is made horizontally across the lower part of the uterus (a bikini cut). With the low cervical transverse, the chances of a VBAC (vaginal birth after c-section) is very good. With the classical incision, VBAC in contrindicated. The reason for this is that the upper portion of the uterusis the area that works the hardest during labor and has the greater stress. It also contains many more blood vessels. The previous incision weakens the uterus in this area and makes it much more likely to rupture. Because of the quantity of blood vessels, the amount of bleeding in the event of a uterine rupture makes it life threatening. The lower risk of rupture and the lower risk of excessive bleeding make VBAC after a transverse c-section make it a viable option.

How do i know if my dog will need a c section?

There's no one reason a dog might need a C-section, but there is one rule: the sooner you realize you have a problem and your mother-to-be might require a C-section, the better the odds that all will go well.

Look out for the following situations, which indicate she may need veterinary help:

Abnormal vaginal discharge that's a greenish-yellow, or a bloody or black discharge anytime after the day 62 of her pregnancy

  • If your dog is past her due date
  • Stage 1 labor for more than 12 hours/ Stage 1 labor is the start of the labor pas her cervix dilates.
  • Stage 2 labor for more than four hours with intermittent labor.
  • Stage 2 labor with forceful, continuous contractions for more than 30 minutes.
  • Wrongly positioned fetuses during the delivery.

Listen to your gut instinct, If you feel your dog needs help, you shouldn't hesitate calling your vet. Do not rely on any Internet helpline during a medical emergency!

What is the risk of placenta acreeta after c sections?

Extremely dangerous. I miracously survived one in o6 along w my son. You should have a team of specialists present at birth. Ready to repair any organ that it may have grown into and possibly you might need blood transfusions for hemoraging complications so look into family donating blood.

It is the surgical delivery of a baby through a mother's abdominal (belly) wall.

If for some reason the baby can't deliver vaginally--pelvis too small, wrong position, placenta in the way (aka previa)--an incision is made through the abdominal wall, and another through the wall of the uterus (womb,) to deliver it.

Can an insurance company deny coverage for a cesarean section?

I'M A MEDICAL BILLER. KIND OF A COMPLICATED QUESTION. DID YOU HAVE THIS COVERAGE WHEN YOU GOT PREGNANT? WAS THE POLICY PAID ON TIME CONTINUOUSLY? IF YOUR POLICY TERMINATED MID PREGNANCY, WAS THERE LESS THAN A 63 DAY GAP IN COVERAGE? IF SO,DID YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONAIRE SENT TO YOU BY THE NEW INSURANCE IN REGARDS TO THE PREVIOUS COVERAGE? IS THIS A MAJOR MEDICAL POLICY? AS IN REGULAR MD VISITS AND PROCEDURE COVERAGE. THERE ARE MANY DIFFERANT TYPES OF COVERAGE. INDEMNITY - LARGE DEDUCTIBLE, CATASTROPHIC, VERY LARGE DEDUCTIBLE AND WILL ONLY PAY FOR A CATASTROPHIC INCIDENT. I'M NOT TRYING TO CONFUSE YOU. YOUR BEST BET IS TO CALL YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY, BE EXTREMLY NICE AND POLITE EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE VERY FRUSTRATED AND ASK FOR HELP IN FIGURING THIS OUT. IF YOU GET NOWHERE, YOU CAN EMAIL ME AT CCALENDRILLO@OPTONLINE.NET AND I'LL TRY TO HELP YOU. I'M PRETTY GOOD AT WHAT I DO. PLEASE STATE "C SECTION" AS SUBJECT AND I'LL OPEN THE EMAIL. GOOD LUCK.

Is there more pressure after having a c-section when becoming pregnant again?

The pressure or discomfort most women feel associated with pregnancy is usually due to roound ligament pain, stretching of the ligaments that support the uterus. It usually comes and goes and is not severe. If the pain does not go away, is on one side only, or is severe you might have a tubal or ectopic pregnancy which is a medical emergency. Having had a C-Section could cause more discomfort due to the scar tissue present from the surgery.

If you had your tubes cut can you have an operation to have it reversed?

I think it is possible to reverse this. I have clips put on mine and have been doing lots of research on the subject so that I might get mine reversed as well. Alot of it depends on how much has been cut off. You can go to www.babies-by-levin.com and read up on his page also there are lots of other pages to read on the internet about this. But this doctor has performed this type before. I hope this helps a little at lesat.

Is it normal to have some vaginal bleeding on the day after intercourse if you had a cesarean baby two months ago?

I've had two c-sections. With my first I didn't have sex for2 or months afterwards because of complications, but with my 2nd, I had sex 5 days after my c-section. As long as it is something you want to do and you feel your body is ready, than there shouldn't be any problems. If you have sex and it hurts and then there is bleeding, that is a sign that you should probably wait a couple more weeks. You may not have fully healed. If you have sex (make sure you are gentle!! you just had MAJOR surgury!!) and you don't feel any discomfort, but there is a bit of blood afterwards, it could just be that part of the uterus lining has come away from all the 'penis poking' going on up there. I do not believe this is a problem. It has happened to me and lots of my female friends. I think that if the bleeding doesn't stop, or it gets heavier and stays 'bright red' for more than a few days, you might want to check with the doctor. It probably isn't anything, but I'm sure it would make you feel better!

Why do so many celebrities have cesarean sections?

I've always assumed that it's more out of convenience than necessity since you can schedule it in advance and can more easily work around a 'busy' celebrity schedule. Also, when it comes to pain, the idea of a painless birth probably seems appealing to someone who is used to leading a pampered lifestyle and so a Cesarean would be an obvious choice if your goal is too avoid pain. There's also the issue of avoidance of passing sexually transmitted diseases onto your baby--with so much promiscuity among celebrities, it is not unreasonable to assume that there is a prevalence of STD infections among pregnant celebrity women (particularly HPV and Herpes) and a Cesarean-section is really the surest way to avoid passing such an STD onto your baby. Opposing Viewpoint. I wondered if this was in fact true myself. However http://www.herpes.com/pregnancy.shtml makes it seem as if C-sections are hardly recommended to people who have Herpes unless the have an active outbreak and got Herpes in the last Trimester. Still ignorance of this information by just about everybody including myself could also lead one to believe that the are getting C-sections because they believe they are protecting their babies from infection. Some doctors have covered an infected external spot with gauze, while some midwives have covered them with superglue.
