Cesarean Birth Preparation Class in Kearny Mesa
All prenatal classes, hospital tours and outpatient support groups at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns, and Sharp Grossmont Hospital are canceled through the end of April. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to focus on the health and safety of our patients, staff, caregivers and community.
A cesarean delivery is planned for many different reasons. This course is designed specifically for couples who know ahead of time that they will be having a cesarean birth and should be taken in place of a childbirth preparation class.
Topics covered in this course include:
- Indications for cesarean birth
- Preparations for surgery
- Pre-operative procedures and medications
- The birthing process
- DVD of C-section (animated and live birth)
- Breastfeeding after surgery
- Post-operative and recovery procedures
- Newborn procedures
