Natural C Section
The first modern c-section was performed in 1881 and while some clinical aspects have advanced, the lack of immediate contact between mother/ baby have not. As a fairly common procedure in the United States, c-sections are recommended for patients who aren’t able to deliver vaginally. Nearly 1 in 3 women do a c- section. Aside from the fact that it’s considered a surgery, women are more concerned with the impersonal delivery method. Once the child is born, they are taken away by nurses for observation, later being brought to the mother.
After 9 months of pregnancy, the first thing you want to do is hold your baby the moment they come into the world. The bonding experience is priceless! The touch of their skin against yours is a feeling many mothers can’t even put into words. Recently, a 33 year old mommy-to-be discovered the option of a natural c- section. This would mean she would have immediate contact with her child post- surgery. Many changes would need to be made in the operating room, from relocating equipment to additional medical staffing. Considering these changes, cost would stay the same so surely a natural cesarean could become the norm for patients, right?
Dr. David Ghozland, an advocate of immediate bonding for mom and baby for years now, has finally brought mother baby centered c-section to reality. With his innovative and alternative approach to c sections, Dr. Ghozland allows his mom’s to immediately bond, nurse, and hold their baby while the c section is still happening. This gives moms an opportunity to meet and touch their baby immediately after they are delivered. As the first location in Los Angeles, Dr. Ghozland understands the importance of the birth process and has made accommodations so patients have the best of both worlds.
While pregnancy can be smooth for some, it can be difficult for others. Often, high- risk patients who struggle with a number of conditions are told they have to do a c- section. When women are faced with the news, many things worry them. The already scrambled nerves of motherhood are now mixed with worries of an impersonal cesarean birth. A natural c-section is a great option and allows you to connect with your baby that you’ve been long awaiting to see!
C-section’s have earned a more positive reputation in recent years. It seems to be a better option for the modern woman and many are choosing natural cesareans. Keep in mind, before going into any doctor’s appointment it’s important to know your facts and research.
