Definition of caesarean section (also known as cesarean section): It is a surgical incision of the abdomen and uterine wall to remove the fetus from the uterus Extraction mode of delivery. Natural delivery: It is a way of natural delivery of the fetus through the mother\’s vagina. Under the push of the fetus, the mother\’s cervix gradually expands, allowing the fetus to gradually descend and finally be born through the birth canal. 2. History Cesarean section: It has existed in ancient times, but it was not until the 20th century that it became a routine method of delivery due to the advancement of medical technology and the development of antibiotics. Natural delivery: It is a natural way of childbirth for human beings and has a history of thousands of years. 3. Applicable situations: caesarean section: suitable for some special situations, such as abnormal fetal position (such as breech or transverse position), fetal distress, labor arrest, pelvic narrowing or deformity, etc. Additionally, some mothers may need a C-section due to health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or other chronic conditions. Normal birth: This is a natural and generally safe method of birth for most healthy mothers and fetuses. However, sometimes medical intervention may be needed, such as the use of oxytocin or techniques such as vacuum extraction to assist with labor. 4. Risks of caesarean section: The operation itself has risks, including infection, bleeding, anesthesia complications, etc. Additionally, mothers who had a C-section take longer to recover and may be at risk of uterine rupture if they become pregnant again. However, in some cases, a caesarean section may be necessary to save the life of the mother and fetus. Natural birth: Although there may be some discomfort and pain, it is a relatively \”natural\” process with low risks. However, it can also lead to perineal tears, fetal hypoxia, and other conditions that require close medical monitoring. 5. Recovery process: Cesarean section: It takes longer to recover. It usually takes 6-8 weeks or more to fully recover. You may experience pain, lochia, and other problems after surgery. Natural delivery: The recovery process is relatively fast, and you can generally return to normal life within a few days after delivery. However, due to changes in hormone levels and changes in the body, some rest and recovery is also required. In summary, both caesarean section and vaginal delivery are safe and commonly used methods of delivery, but they differ in terms of availability, risks, and recovery process. When choosing a mode of delivery, you should fully understand the characteristics of the two modes of delivery and make decisions based on the advice of your doctor.
