Cesarean Delivery in Dubai


Cesarean delivery or C-section or cesarean birth is a surgical procedure to deliver a baby through incisions in the mother’s abdominal wall and uterus. This method is preferred when vaginal delivery cannot be done safely. You can plan a C-section ahead of time, or doctors can decide on it at run time.

Who needs a Cesarean delivery in Dubai?

An emergency C-section delivery is done when you have certain medical conditions or complications during labor. Planned cesarean delivery in Dubai is performed when any of the following conditions exist:

Generally previous C-section leads to another, but it’s not mandatory. The doctor makes that decision based on the previous uterine incision and the chances of uterine rupture. 

If you expect multiples, it might call for a C-section.

C-section is advisable for women with placenta previa. As the placenta covers a big part of the cervix, vaginal delivery may cause severe bleeding.

If there is a large uterine fibroid or a pelvic fracture, it could be a reason for a C-section.

CPD usually refers to the condition where the fetal head is too big to pass through the maternal pelvis, or if your pelvis is too small for an average-sized baby.

If the position of your baby is horizontal or sideways, C-section is advised.

If your baby’s feet or bottom is first in the uterus, it’s difficult to try vaginal delivery unless the doctor can turn baby.

If the mother suffers from health issues like heart disease and high BP, the doctor may advise a C-Section after the Check-up.

An unplanned cesarean delivery in Dubai may be called during labor if the following conditions arise:

If the labor has been prolonged and cervix dilation is not enough to propagate the body to move down the birth canal.

 Before the baby is born, the placenta separates from the wall of your uterus.

 When the heart rate of the baby drops or the baby is facing difficulty in the labor process, the doctor may take a call for a C-section. 

 Sometimes, the umbilical cord is wrapped around your baby’s neck or body.

 A situation when the umbilical cord comes out of your cervix before the baby.

Cesarean Delivery Procedure

Generally, women are given anesthesia in the lower half. The doctor makes a horizontal incision on the abdomen skin. Through the abdominal muscles, doctors reach the uterus, where they make another horizontal or transverse incision. The baby is gently pulled out, and the umbilical cord is cut. The newborn is safely handed over to a nurse. 

Post-op Recovery

The doctor suggests medications for pain and discomfort after a C-section. The recovery period is a little longer than for vaginal births. The mother and the baby would stay in the hospital for about 2 or 3 days.

Breast feeding After a Cesarean Delivery

Breastfeeding is an important part of bonding with your baby and providing him or her with essential nutrients. If you have had a cesarean delivery, you may still be able to breastfeed your baby. However, you may need to adjust to ensure you and your baby are comfortable during feedings. Your doctor or a lactation consultant can provide guidance and support to help you breastfeed successfully after cesarean delivery.
