What is a gentle C-section?

Is a gentle C-section right for me?

You can usually choose a gentle C-section whenever you’re a candidate for traditional C-sections. Your Marina OB/GYN specialist may recommend you undergo a C-section if your baby is positioned as breech, your baby is too big for your pelvis, you’re carrying multiple babies, or you’ve previously had a C-section. 

Unplanned C-sections may occur if you or your baby are in distress during labor and delivery. Your OB/GYN specialist determines the safest way to deliver your baby based on various factors. 

What happens during gentle C-sections?

During the procedure, you receive anesthesia to ensure gentle C-sections are painless. Your provider makes a tiny incision, gently removes your baby, and closes the incisions.  Dr. Lipeles and his team have created a unique approach to the steps of the cesarean section.  This unique approach leads to, drastically, decreased recovery time and a quick return to home from the hospital after the declivery.  The duration of the procedure varies from patient to patient, but the process is relaxing, enjoyable, and as natural as possible.

What should I expect after a gentle C-section?

C-sections usually require longer recoveries than vaginal deliveries, but you can eat immediately after surgery. You might get up and walk around soon afterward, return home in just two days, and most patients feel pain-free after about one to two weeks. Follow all post-care instructions as directed by your OB/GYN provider to ensure proper healing.
