I''m meeting with my obstetrician in a few weeks time for the first time but since I am already 27 weeks pregnant almost I will be telling him I want a c section birth. I have medical grounds (psychological) for doing so and have thus far been supported by my GP and midwives at the hospital I've just transferred to.
I'm a nurse so I like to be informed about procedures and what they completely entail. I've researching the procedure likely to be carried out (but will get the hospitals version of course may be slightly different per hospital according to policies etc) but what kind of things did you ask about it or research into?
Just wondering if I may have missed something
At the moment I am thinking to ask what the procedure is for the particular hospitals arrival to the hospital before the section, if I will meet with the anaethetist prior, what method they use to close the wound ie staples or sutures and what kind, what kind of medications they give for pain relief afterward as I know this can vary, whether DH can stay with me when the epidural/spinal is being administered, how long the whole procedure from start to finish is likely to take, can't think of what else...
