Caesarean Section Births

About Caesarean Section Births:

A cesarean delivery, also known as a c-section, is a surgical procedure performed for delivering a baby through incisions in the abdomen and uterus. It may be planned in advance of the due delivery date or unplanned after a woman goes into labor, for various complications. A planned c-section is termed as “elective” cesarean, whereas an unplanned operation is an “emergency” c-section.

Whatever is the case, choosing the right healthcare service provider to have your baby delivered is an important decision you should make during pregnancy. At American Hospital Dubai, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for both mother and baby from routine prenatal care to managing high-risk pregnancies, births, and post-delivery care.
We have enlisted the expertise of our Obstetrics & Gynecology Specialists who can attend expectant mothers, determine delivery plans, evaluate risks and manage deliveries in a safe environment. By following an inter-disciplinary approach, they make sure that both mother and baby have access to a complete range of diagnostic and treatment options.

Reasons for a C-Section:

Listed below are common medical reasons for a c-section:

  • Prolonged labor
  • Abnormal positioning (breech or transverse presentation of a fetus)
  • Fetal distress
  • Birth defects
  • History of cesarean, and not considering vaginal birth after c-section (VBAC)
  • Chronic health conditions (heart disease, diabetes, thyroid gland issues, hypertension or high blood pressure, genital herpes, or other infections)
  • Cord prolapse
  • Cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD) (the condition when a mother’s pelvis is too small or baby’s head is too big to pass through the vagina)
  • Placenta issues (low-lying placenta known as placenta previa and placenta abruption)
  • Carrying multiples

Our experienced Gynecologists, midwives, and nurses work together to provide expectant mothers with specialized and coordinated care to meet their individual needs.
