Cesarean Section or C-Section Births

A cesarean section, or c-section is the delivery of a baby through a surgical incision in the mother’s abdomen and uterus.  In certain circumstances, a c-section is scheduled in advance. In others, it is done in response to an unforeseen complication.

Why would I have a planned c-section?

Sometimes it is clear that a woman will need a cesarean even before she goes into labor.  This is a decision that will be planned between you and your physician. NRMC policy allows elective deliveries no sooner than 38 weeks, for the well-being of the baby and mother.
