Before your c-section, you will be given instructions on how to prepare yourself for the surgery, and what will happen before, during, and after the surgery.
Make sure to bring a list of the medicines you take right now, including prescriptions from your doctor, any over-the-counter medications, and supplements-like vitamins, or herbals. Try to make a note of when you take them, and how much of each medicine you take. This is important for every visit with your doctor and anytime you need to go to the hospital. Please give this list to your health care providers, and tell them if you have any allergies.
You will be asked: do not drink or eat anything for at least 8 hours before your surgery.
