There are several risks of having a C-section that all pregnant women should know about. While a C-section is a necessity in some cases, most doctors prefer to avoid scheduling them on demand. Here are a few risks you should know about due to their relationship to C-section surgery:
– Excessive bleeding
– Injury to the bladder
– Poor reaction to medication
– Prolonged healing
– Potential for blood clots
– Potential injury to the baby
Remember that it takes quite a while for a C-section to heal. You may be stuck in bed much longer than if you had a vaginal delivery.
Always check with your doctor regarding questions on your health for you or you baby.
