Cesarean Delivery, commonly called a C-section, is a surgical procedure used to deliver one or more babies through an incision in the abdomen. It is traditionally used when a vaginal delivery could pose risk to mom or baby. Even if you are planning for a vaginal birth you may want to gather some information on cesarean births in the event it becomes impossible to carry out your vaginal birth plan. Things you may want to think about are preferences with anesthesia or where the baby will go immediately following the procedure. Once you start thinking about these options you might want to jot your thoughts down on a piece of paper as a backup birthing plan.
