Pune, 14th December 2022: In a recent incident, doctors at Manipal Hospitals, Kharadi, successfully delivered a baby through a natural C-section. The couple had come to the hospital after 2 unsuccessful pregnancies. After the consultation with the doctors, the couple insisted for a cesarean delivery. Dr. Rushali Jadhav and her team mimicked vaginal delivery in which the mother could see the newborn child coming out of her womb.
Natural C-section is a slowed-down method in which the focus is on improving the bonding between the mother and child. In this unique case, the mother could see the baby taking birth and right after the delivery, the baby was given to the mother without cutting the umbilical cord. This was done to ensure that the child is getting skin-to-skin contact with the mother. After this, it was the mother who cut the umbilical cord of the baby under the supervision of the doctor and pediatrician.
Commenting on the uniqueness of this case, Dr. Rushali Jadhav, Consultant – Obstetrician and Gynecologist, Manipal Hospitals, Kharadi- Pune said, “This was a special case in which we delivered the baby through a natural c-section. After two unsuccessful pregnancies, the couple was quite anxious and wanted to ensure that the bay is safe. Therefore, they insisted on a natural C- section. Keeping their sentiment in mind, we tried mimicking the vaginal delivery. During this procedure, only the head of the baby is taken out through a small incision in the abdomen. After that, the baby pushes its way out of the mother’s womb and is given to the mother for direct skin contact. Thankfully, there were no complications during the procedure. Both the mother and the child were safe post-delivery.”
