There are two ways to do a uterine repair: in situ (where the uterus remains inside the abdominal cavity) and exteriorization (where they pull it out and sit it on top of you). It was once believed that exteriorizing was safer, but more recent research has revealed that is not true AND in situ repairs in the controlled studied reported less painful recoveries. You can ask your surgeon if he/she does in situ repairs. If they say no, and it bothers you, find someone else. I won't use an OB that does exteriorized repairs.

My daughter is perfect, but her birth was not. If you or someone you love is struggling to cope with a traumatic childbirth experience, please visit http://www.solaceformothers.org/

Yes it's true. My husband also verified it and watched the whole thing. Sounds awful but it's the only way the doctor can clean and stitch properly. It's also part of the reason why you're so sore afterwards. There are no muscles cut during a C-Section but they are moved and shifted quite a bit. On top of your incision that makes for quite a sore belly.

Yep they do after the baby is delivered. It looks like a big bloody football. I saw my friends c/s when I was in there with her. Dang all I can say is it's no wonder we are in so much pain when it's all over said and done with.

Yes, they do. They deliver the baby through your incision, then at some point after take your uterus out to examine your tubes/overies and clean out your uterus. I think they also check your intestines as well. I just asked my OB about this at my last appt (nov 20). I haven't been able to find a youtube video that shows it, but you can find pictures.

Mama to 3, expecting #4 in December!
