When is a cesarean section an “emergency “
When I’ve mentioned that I had a csection I’ve gotten asked if it was an emergency situation.
I was scheduled (more like went to my 38 week appointment and was asked “wanna have a baby today?”) for an induction due to a “wavering heart rate “ basically saying my son had no baseline heart rate. It went from ~105 to around ~175 with no consistency. The induction went on for a few hours (I can’t even remember how long tbh) But his heart rate stayed steady at ~180 and started to climb higher. My heart rate started to climb at that point and that’s when we went for the csection. So yes it was a point of risk to carry on vaginally but to me that’s not “emergency “
What do y’all think? When is a csection deemed “emergent” I wasn’t RUSHED into OR things were still pretty calm.
