A cesarean section or “C-section” delivery refers to the well-known process of surgically delivering a baby from the uterus as opposed to a normal vaginal birth. In a C-section, the doctor makes a surgical incision in the mother’s stomach and the baby is physically extracted through the opening. There are a lot of birth injury medical malpractice lawsuits filed in Maryland due to the failure to perform a C-section.
What are the side effects of a cesarean delivery?
Side-effects of a C-section delivery often include excessive fatigue, itching, numbness and painful constipation. Another side-effect of a C-section is that the recovery time is typically much longer compared to a vaginal delivery.
