A C-section is a surgical procedure in which the baby is delivered through an incision in the mother's abdomen. C-sections can be planned or emergency procedures.
There are a few things you can do to prepare for your partner's C-section:
– Talk to your doctor about what to expect.
– Help your partner pack a hospital bag.
– Arrange for childcare for any other children.
– Be available to drive your partner to and from the hospital.
You may be able to stay with your partner during the C-section.
If you are able to stay, you will be able to see your baby being born and cut the umbilical cord.
Your partner will need to stay in the hospital for a few days after the C-section. During this time, you will be able to help her care for the baby and herself.
