3 c-sections and 2 very tired feet

Posted Feb 24 2010 7:12am
C-section #1: elective c/s offered for method of delivery. Patient accepted. (grrrrr)

C-section #2: primip who pushed for 3 hours. Failed vacuum.

C-section #3: primip who pushed for 3 hours. Failed vacuum.

Amazingly enough, the failed vacuum (both patients) did not need an extra hand from below to push the baby's head up out of the pelvis during the c-section. This is common to have to do when mom has been pushing for so long, and the baby is very low in the pelvis.

**The hand from below is the circulating nurse - pushing the head up out of the pelvis during the c/s so the surgeon can lift the baby out through the abdominal incision.
