On the day of your cesarean delivery, at your scheduled time, you will be taken to a pre-procedure room.
To prepare you for the surgery, your healthcare professional will first make sure that you have an intravenous line, or IV. You will be given medications and fluids, through your IV, during the surgery. You may receive antibiotics so there is less of a chance for infections.
Fetal monitors will be put on to your abdomen to watch the status of your baby. These monitors are safe for both you and your baby.
Patches will be applied to the skin of your chest, arms or legs for an electrocardiogram, or EKG. The EKG patches record the electrical activity of your heart during the procedure.
Your doctor may be available to answer any last minute questions that you may have, and your family or friends may be able to stay with you until it is time for you to go to the procedure room.
