What is a Caesarean Delivery?

A Caesarean delivery, often referred to as a C-section, is a surgical procedure used to deliver a baby through incisions made in the abdomen and uterus. This method is sometimes planned in advance and, in other situations, may be recommended due to unforeseen complications during labour.

Why Might You Need a Caesarean Delivery?

C-section might be necessary or preferred for various reasons including:


  • Prolonged labour that does not progress normally.
  • Concerns about the baby’s health during natural delivery.
  • Multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets, etc.).
  • Physical conditions that make vaginal delivery risky.

What to Expect During a Caesarean Delivery

Knowing what to expect during your Caesarean delivery can help alleviate any concerns:


  • Before the Procedure: Pre-operative consultations and checks to ensure you are fully prepared for surgery.
  • During the Procedure: The operation typically takes about 40-50 minutes, during which you may be awake but numb from the waist down due to an epidural or spinal anaesthesia.
  • Recovery: Post-operative care is crucial, and our team will be there to support you through recovery, offering pain management solutions and assistance with beginning to breastfeed if you choose to do so.
