What time did they perform your c-section. You can answer multiples for separate pregnancies.

Just a little research experiment.

Mine was done at 10:30am. I went in before 5am and knew I would have a c-section. DS was transverse and my water had broken

6:31pm here. I was in labor for 3 days and he started having decels at 4:30. We tried a bunch of stuff to try and make it stop and a c/s was decided upon at 6pm. Turns out he was posterior and brow presenting which pretty much makes him undeliverable.

A friend of mine who has a bicornate uterus (di-something, where she has two of everything) and has had 3 scheduled c-s, said she prefers to schedule for 6am because of the "no eating after midnight" thing. She had one surgery at 3pm and said she was starving.

I'm guessing she's wondering if the theory that most sections happen during office hours for doctors convenience. It's most definitely true I think.

maybe you'd better exclude planned c-sections from your responses

Why on earth wouldn't it be "no eating after 9AM" for a 3pm surgery then? I mean, if it's okay to have a huge meal that ends right at 11:59pm and then have surgery at 6am....

If hospitals can't personalize things enough to even handle that kind of variation, it's no wonder their malpractice rates are through the roof.

Hmmm... it was late afternoon following 32 hours of labor (at home and at hospital).

I think you'll need to seperate scheduled vs "emergent" or "emergency" c/s in order to get useful data. It would make complete sense that scheduled surgeries would take place during "normal' hours (if that really is the purpose of the survey).

Around 7:30 a.m. - I'd been ruptured for 24 hours (stupid unnecessary induction) and my OB started really pushing for the c/s because I had a fever and DS was getting tachycardic. (Shouldn't have let her rupture me, but that's a rant for another thread)

I waited until shift change at 7 a.m. before I consented to surgery. My options were to have my OB do the surgery after being up all night on call, or to wait for her partner to come on duty. I really liked my OB a lot, and I didn't know her partner at all, but I'd rather have a well-rested surgical team than one that's sleep-deprived and in a rush to finish and go home...

I voted 6am-12pm, but now that I really think about it I'm pretty sure ds was born at 12:30pm. My water had broke about 51 hours before.

I believe I read that most are done at 5pm and 10pm which translates into "get home for dinner" and "get home and into bed before its too late".

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

They joked that we were "the 4am c-section". not funny.
The intern also joked I'd be wearing a bikini that summer. also not funny.

Mine was scheduled (breech) and I just wanted to get it done and over with and have the rest of the day to recoup. Baby was born at 9:58 AM.
