Tips on how to make c-section as natural as possible

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am 8 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child (first delivered vaginally and is 7 years old).
4 years ago I had an abdominal myomectomy to remove a grapefruit sized fibroid tumor which left my uterus compromised. I was unable to get pregnant due to the surgery and ended up doing 4 rounds of IVF.

I have taken a lot of hormones and medication throughout my quest to get pregnant and am concerned about adding to this chemical load for my baby and me. I am unable to have a vaginal birth this time due to the surgery and a significant risk of uterine rupture.

Can anyone give me any suggestions for which medications I can avoid during csection?

Any direction or advice is much appreciated!

Thanks,
Christine

In an otherwise complication free pregnancy there aren't a lot of meds involved in a c section itself....

 

You have the epidural or spinal... Kinda necessary and less risky than a general

tell the staff you don't want any anti-anxiety or amnesiac drugs administered during the surgery

i was administered some iv antibiotics, one dose, after the surgery was completed, and not told about it. However, I don't have a problem with that as my gut had just been exposed to the world. Then there's postoperative pain meds... Which you can take or not as your comfort suggests.
