Our first experience on the ward was observing a cesarean section. The procedure had already begun prior to us entering the room, and the first thing that we noticed was how big the incision was! The head nurse of labour and delivery explained to us that it was the woman's third c-section, which meant there was quite a bit of scar tissue present on the uterus making the procedure difficult. Once the baby was born, they quickly wiped him off, showed the mother the sex and and his face, and then proceeded to take him to a different room to have a more in depth examination. The mother was then sutured up, and brought to the recovery unit. It was our first time watching a c-section, and we were relieved that everything went well for both the mother and baby.
