    I don’t think I was covered up in my emergency c section 7.5 months ago as I remember looking up at the ceiling which was reflective and I could see everything!! It was a bit awkward and gruesome. I had to look away!

    I liked watching it last night was good to see what happens in an elective c section and how calm it was as opposed to my emergency one which was not a textbook one! It was funny how they described the feeling as someone doing the washing up in your tummy. My c section felt like they were giving me CPR! They were pushing so hard under my ribs and so much pressure. My bub was so stuck that the OB had to do what she called a somersault maneuvere and flip him inside me and pull him out by his legs and she said in her 20 years of delivering babies my baby was only the 5th one she’s had to do that too!! When Mel was talking to the OB last night after the c section she was going on about how getting the baby out seems like the quick part. Not in my case it wasn’t! But I’m so glad I watched it and puts my mind at ease knowing next time if I have another baby and have an elective c section like I’ve been recommended to do it should be a much better experience for me! I was a blubbering mess last night though. Brought make memories of mine which was only 7.5 months ago but feels like just yesterday still!

    I can guarantee you it won’t be. A big part of what we do is maintaining dignity of the patient - and that translates to not leaving them exposed!!! If the doctor leaves you exposed I can guarantee the nurses won’t

At one of the fertility clinics i went to for ivf, they wouldnt let you wear deodorant for transfer day because apparently embryos dont like strong smells??? The second clinic i went to looked at me like i was mad when i asked if i could wear deodorant and they said 'of course'.
    I straightened my hair before my first cesarean, back in the days when i could take my time in the mornings. I also went to the hairdressers a few days before my second one because i knew it was going to be awhile before the next trip!

    It’s not my thing but I would say about half of the booked caesareans at work have a full face of makeup and perfect hair. Heaps also have nails done - mostly toes but also fingers. We can work around it all I just cringe at them kissing their newborn and getting lipstick all over them.

    The tv didn’t show everything, including the catheter you get. I assume the shaving is for that.

    It’s because of the dressing. As the incision is made right on the bikini line, you need to remove a couple of inches of hair so the dressing doesn’t get stuck to the hair. It also means that the dressing can seal completely. If there was hair in the way, it would allow bugs etc to get to the open wound and cause infection.
