Emergency C-section: should you be concerned?

An emergency cesarean section may sometimes be the only option during delivery. It may occur in the following cases:

  • Fetal or maternal distress, which would endanger the health of the baby or the mom.
  • The umbilical cord comes out before the baby.
  • Hemorrhage.
  • Placental abruption.
  • A uterine rupture on a previous scar.

In this type of C-section, everything happens at high speed! From the moment the decision is made, the baby can be extracted from your belly within a minute.
