Normal & Caesarean Delivery
What is Normal Delivery?
Normal delivery is the birth of the baby through the vagina. It is the natural method of birth. A normal delivery is many times also termed as vaginal delivery. At GNH Hospital, Gurgaon we try to conduct deliveries through the normal method unless it gets imperative to do a C-section.
Types of Normal Baby Delivery
- Spontaneous: when a pregnant female goes into labour without the use of drugs or techniques to induce labour.
- Assisted or Instrumental: when a pregnant female goes into labour with the use of drugs or techniques to induce labour and requires the use of special instruments to deliver the baby
- Induced: when drugs or manual techniques are used to initiate the process of labour
What is Caesarean Delivery?
Cesarean section or c-section is the delivery of a baby through a surgical incision in the mother's abdomen and uterus. Most of the time a c-section is scheduled in advance. But sometimes it is done in response to an unforeseen complication. At GNH Hospital, Gurgaon, we advise cesarean delivery only when it is essential. Our experienced gynaecologists Dr Nidhi Goel Aggarwal and Dr Smita Vats ensure that all your queries regarding a cesarean delivery are answered.
During cesarean delivery, first the doctor will give anaesthesia. When anaesthesia starts working, gynaecologist makes the cesarean incision through lower abdomen and uterus. There may be an intense feeling of pressure or pulling as the baby is delivered. After delivering the newborn through the incision, doctor then removes the placenta and closes the uterus and incision with layers of stitches. Right after surgery mother is taken to a recovery area. Stay in the recovery area is for 1 to 4 hours, and then mother is moved to a hospital room.
