In this episode, I do an extended q&a session-taking questions that you guys have given me about c-sections!

Here are the questions we go over!

  1. What are some reasons why a c-section is warranted?
  2. What can I expect when I go the hospital for my scheduled c-section?
  3. Can you still do skin to skin?
  4. Can you be awake in an emergency c-section if you haven’t had an epidural/spinal block?
  5. How long after my c-section can I start massaging my scar?
  6. If you have an anterior placenta- how does the surgeon know where the placenta is before they cut?
  7. Why can’t I eat or drink before the c-section?
  8. Do they cut through your old scar for repeat c-sections?
  9. Any tips or tricks to distract me so I can handle the spinal?
  10. Why did I vomit so much during my c-section? Will that happen again?
  11. Why do your feet swell up again after your c-section?
  12. Can a c-section affect your milk supply?
