What happens for the delivery?

It may be possible for you to deliver your baby in the normal way unless there are other reasons for requiring Caesarean Section.

It is preferable to deliver the baby where surgical facilites are available soon after the operation. Following delivery the bowel will be wrapped in a plastic sheet to both protect it and reduce heat and fluid loss. A drip will be placed into a small vein so that intravenous fluids can be given, as your baby will not be able to feed in the normal way. A tube will be passed through your baby's nose into the stomach to drain away the bile (green fluid) that collects here. This lessens the risk of vomiting and reduces discomfort.
