C-sections are usually carried out when medical staff feel that a normal delivery process would pose a serious health threat to the mother or the baby or both. Initially there were some safety concerns raised about C-sections, due to the various side effects. Advancements in medical technology has made the C-section procedure much safer. In spite of this, medical staff might still end up not using the right methods, causing side effects in patients undergoing delivery through C-sections. Due to improper C-section procedures, medical staff can cause injuries to both the mother and the new-born baby. Some of the injuries caused can damage the surrounding organs, such as the bladder.
C-Sections can either be planned or unplanned. Medical staff resort to unplanned C-sections when there is an inordinate delay in delivery, or when the umbilical cord surrounds the baby’s neck obstructing the normal delivery of the baby. When improper methods are used to perform C-sections, there are chances of the baby being seriously injured. The baby can get laceration and bruising marks that might require stitching. In some cases, it leaves a permanent mark on the baby.
