Thanks for sharing photos! So neat. I don't have any pics from C-section #1 (emergency) and the pics I have from #2 (scheduled) are only of my head and baby, no guts.
During the surgery they did provide a mirror that goes over my head so that I can see what's going on on the other side of the sheet. It was so neat to watch! At one my point my doc had his arm in my gut up to his elbow.
For an operation that is sadly so common now it seems that far too often women have a poor experience, the staff in the theatre really should pay more attention to that fact.
Yes I understand they are there to do a job and to save the life of mother and baby (in the rare case of a true emergency) but taking a little time and effort to make the delivery of their baby closer to a birth would make the process better.
I had an emergency c-section and was asleep through out, I was out to sleep and baby was out within 1 minute of knife to skin!! I took a pic of my belly a week after as the bruising was horrendous. I havnt got any actual c-section pics or scar pics but here the bruising for anyone that wants a look!
