13 Things Mothers Wish They’d Known Before Getting Their C-Section

We at Bright Side are sure that giving birth is a miracle no matter how it’s done. And women who have experienced the surgery are here to spread some light on the topic.

Although having a cesarean is common, this is a major operation that requires anesthesia. Mothers have a deep cut, which subsequently closes in several stages.

It all sounds horrifying but you won’t see anything because the lower part of the body will be hidden behind a screen. The only thing you’ll see is your baby.

One important part of the operation is the insertion of a catheter into the bladder. Don’t worry, this is done to empty the bladder. A full one will put pressure on the uterus, so it’s necessary for the uterus to contract better after childbirth. This reduces the likelihood of damage to it during the operation.
