Caesarean section with your own eyes
November 1, 2012 in a maternity home №16 girl was born. Perhaps not the only, but its appearance in the world I was able not only to witness but to shoot.
No need to tell that to get to the birth is almost impossible if you are not a doctor, not the Pope, and especially not my mother. However, in spite of everything, I was lucky enough to watch the birth, or rather the operation process called "Caesarean section".
I'm not a doctor and not an expert in this area, and even the more impressionable child, so please forgive me for some inaccuracies that may appear in the post. I consider it necessary to warn that there will be a few pictures, "not for the faint of heart."
The operation is very fast. So much so that I almost missed the moment when the kid to get out of my mother.
Torubarov Sergey F. - chief doctor of the hospital. In family photos in his office, where we meet with Tanya morning, I counted three children. The operation will be carried out himself.
Rodd is located in one of the most popular areas of Moscow, in the artists village of Sokol. By the way, many of my friends told me that there were born or gave birth to their children.
Initially, the hospital building was a school. It looks like a typical school. Two sweeping staircase on the edges, a corridor with windows and classes classes. During the war, the school was equipped as a hospital, and after the victory left home medical purpose. And there was a hospital.
Sergey F. talked a lot about childbirth. He announced a time that the presence of the father at birth - this is not the privilege of giving birth under the contract, as prescribed in the legislation of the line. The father may be present at birth, whether paid or free. I would love to go through this time alone with your midwife. This is a generic box. There goes a woman in labor in a period of frequent clashes. Possible on fitball pokolbasitsya: experienced mothers claim that it helps to relax. In boxing there is a table for a newborn, shower or bath.
Please note that after delivery, when there is a disinfection box, the door is sealed with tape around the perimeter. Nowhere is this seen.
And this is our heroine, Elena. She was 37 years old, works in a historical archive. This is her first pregnancy, and because she had problems before, Elena natural childbirth are not shown. Very worried our mama.
An experienced mother Tanya tells us that it's not so scary and very fast. Not experienced, and not even my mother, Dashechka, that is, I, too, cheers.
But I think that at this moment we have not heard Elena, and think only about the meeting with the child.
Operating ready. Lena shift on the operating table, an anesthesiologist at the ready. I do not know as we did before, but now a cesarean section is done with epidural anesthesia. It blocks the passage of nerve impulses, in other words, turns off the body below the injection site, and the new mother remains conscious.
Prick placed in the spine. To begin, make a local anesthetic, and after the long, thick needle penetrates into the epidural space of the spine. There is introduced the main cocktail painkillers.
The right hand is placed on a separate table. In his hand is worth catheter saline solution, and has already prepared a syringe with a sedative. The latter will need at the end of the operation, and saline compensates for the loss of blood. Anesthesiologist lovely, like an angel in the head, was the whole operation.
At the foot of cesarean should be wearing compression stockings. They prevent the occurrence of blood clots. They seem to be required for any abdominal surgery.
Sister holding a plate with the wiring. It is attached to the leg. As far as I understand, this is a kind of zero, and the phase will be the instrument needle to cauterize blood vessels.
The children's doctor with a cat Simon and her workplace. In this cradle the baby will take his first medical examination.
Everything is ready for the arrival of the head physician and assistant professor of medicine. Please note, Lena, not only will not see anything behind the screen, her body completely covered, even the place of operation. It is a film to be cut right through it.
And from the hygienic point of view, the "tablecloth" is very convenient. Around the surgical site for collection of fluids made with a tap.
Sergei Feliksovich spiritual suit. He puts on shoe covers, wash hands with soap and water, then treated with an antiseptic.
In the operating room doors sister helped him get dressed in sterile attire. He is very similar to the hero here Leonov, director of the kindergarten, in the "gentlemen of fortune"!
Bonjour expectant mothers!
And the final touch - a surgical glove.
Generally cesarean doing across the abdomen. The scar is almost imperceptible. But Elena was already a longitudinal scar, so the cut will do on the old tracks. It is excised, the new will be a hundred times more accurately, says Sergey F..
Muscle tissue is so strong that it took the strength of two men to stretch the hole.
And here is the climax!
The first breath and first cry! Itself, even the ass did not have to knock. Hello World!
I did not know that the umbilical cord is like a telephone wire
Quickly show mom. Who gave birth to ?! Lena did not even once said, but knew in advance who is.
The basic parameters are normal. Baby wipes do not, after 10-15 minutes he obsohnet.
And then the bear to his chest! Tanya, who manages the magazine about childbirth for ten years, has shared that first sees that immediately after the cesarean was applied to the chest.
Well, kiss mamulki - without tenderness anywhere!
And then we went to all sorts of measuring and weighing. Meanwhile, my mother was immersed in a dream and sew.
And I'm on the horizon. In funny hat khaki.
The operation is over.
Less than ten minutes later, mother and daughter met in the post-natal ward.
In the evening, Lena will have to walk. Moreover, it should be done to speed up the healing process.
And so begins the story of a new life!
