As we all know, we now advocate natural delivery, and the benefits of natural delivery are self -evident.But in many cases, expectant mothers have to choose a caesarean section.Whether you choose a cesarean section or an accident, you need to understand the relevant content and recovery process of cesarean section in advance.
Under normal circumstances, some risk factors during pregnancy increase the chance of caesarean section, including multiple pregnancy, sexual transmission infections, and physical causes of some pregnant women (such as heart disease, hypertension, etc.).
And the study found that the possibility of overweight pregnant women during pregnancy is twice that of normal weight pregnant women.The risk of caesarean section that has reached the standard of obesity is three times that of normal pregnant women.
This is some useful information you need to know after a caesarean section.
▶ ① One hour after cesarean section
Due to anesthesia after surgery, your lower body is still uncomfortable.
★ Usually at the end of the caesarean section surgery, the anesthesiologist will enter some long -term analgesic drugs to the mother to reduce the pain and discomfort after awakening.Therefore, patients often do not hurt very much within a few hours after surgery, but they may feel a little unobstructed.
★ Good news: Unless there is complications, you will be able to hold your baby immediately and breastfeed.
▶ ① The first day after cesarean section
On the first day of the cesarean section, we must pay attention to the recovery of the uterus and vaginal bleeding. The nurse will massage the uterus to strengthen the uterine contraction to the normal size.Also pay attention to seeing vaginal bleeding.If the uterine contraction is not good and the vagina bleeds too much, the corresponding contraction treatment will be given.
★ If possible, the doctor will encourage you to get out of bed on the first day.Although you have just performed major abdominal surgery, getting out of bed early will help to speed up the recovery of cesarean section.

★ Scar after caesarean section usually looks red or pink after a few months, but the color of the scar will fade and become a thin line.
Some new mothers will be more raised than other people’s scars, but they are rarely very obvious.In fact, many women wearing bikinis you see on the beach or swimming pool may have scars of caesarean section, but it is generally not obvious.
▶ ② The wounds are kept clean to avoid infection after surgery.Do not get wet wounds when bathing within two weeks after surgery.Do not bear weight (weight loss, etc.) within six weeks after surgery, so as not to interfere with the wound healing.A few weeks after surgery, you may feel painful, bleeding, numb and cramps in caesarean section scars.There may be itching of caesarean scars, and at this time, the impulse to scratch the wound must be resisted.If there are a large amount of bleeding or exudation at the wound, red on the edge, scar pain is intensified or the fever is higher than 38 degrees Celsius, please contact the doctor immediately.

But in a few cases, scars are also facing the risk of tearing.If the scar of the caesarean section is torn (called the rupture of the uterus), it will cause a lot of bleeding (bleeding), which will be life -threatening to both mothers and babies.
★ Even if the uterine rupture is rare, most doctors and hospitals will not take vaginal delivery after cesarean section.Therefore, the first child chooses a cesarean section for pregnant women, and the second child will continue to have a caesarean section.
