Family-Centered Cesarean Section

The Family Centered C-Section technique helps to make the experience positive for mom and baby as well as safe. This technique involves slowing the delivery of the baby through the incision in order to allow for squeezing more fluid out of the baby’s lungs (Similar to vaginal birth). Women who are interested can even have their heads lifted to see their baby being born. Moms can also experience immediate skin to skin contact and have their partner cut the umbilical cord.
MacArthur Medical Center provides the Family Centered C-Section option to our patients.
