  • Your doctor may consider a caesarean section if you are expecting several babies (twins, triplets). 
  • It should be noted that post-natal recovery is longer, usually in the order of six weeks. 
  • Talk to other mothers who have had a C-section. The experience can often be different from what is expected. 
  • A caesarean section may be recommended for a baby in a seat, placenta problems or severe pre-eclampsia. 
  • Be prepared to stay in the hospital for up to 3 to 5 days afterwards. 
  • Keep in mind that you will not be able to drive for up to six weeks after a caesarean section. 
  • Find out about the different possibilities for pain treatment and anesthesia in the event of a caesarean section. 
  • Learn about "soft caesarean section" options, which allow parents to incorporate some of the most natural aspects of childbirth, such as skin-to-skin contact from birth. 
  • Read our post-CY-section recovery checklist to find out what to make after the operation.
