Pregnancy is indeed a period that is both thrilling and fun. Many expectant mothers can’t wait for their baby to come in their arms. The love, which is increasing day by day, makes pregnant women love and take good care of their pregnancies, because in the birth process, of course, they yearn for a smooth birth with healthy hearts.
The presence of a baby in a newly married couple is certainly something that is so awaited. With the presence of a baby in a family, it will certainly add to the complete and feel that our family is perfect. The cheerful laughter and little tears of the baby in the midst of a small family will certainly add to the warmth of the family relationship.
For this reason, many prospective mothers or mothers who are about to give birth are often made impatient to want to carry their children immediately. Moreover, being the first person to touch his child when he was first born into the world. Many women dream of being the first to touch their newborn baby. Taking an active role during the birth of your baby is certainly a challenging thing. And this is what a mother in Australia did.
Underwent the birth of twins with an unusual procedure
Is a 41 year old mother named Gerri Wolfe, a woman from Australia who performs the birth procedure of her twins in an unusual way.
Too enthusiastic and impatient to cuddle her little baby, Gerri deliberately took out the baby herself during a cesarean section. Initially, doctors did not allow Gerri to have a normal birth. However, Gerri didn’t want to be someone who was just sitting there and passively on the operating table and doing nothing.
Previously, he had read about the maternal assisted caesarean he got from the internet. Maternal assisted caesarean is a process of birth, in which the mother, whose hands are sterile, can hold the baby for the first time.
This birth process was carried out a few days before Christmas was held last year, this birth process was not the first time. Twins to be born at this time are the 10th and 11th births performed at the John Hunter Hospital, New South Wales, Australia.
At that time, a cesarean delivery will begin on her. A surgical curtain was placed over his chest. After a local anesthetic was applied to her body, Gerri’s hands were washed several times using disinfectant soap. Then he was put on gloves by the doctor.
Helping to carry out a caesarean section by himself has been taken by Gerri as the most solid decision. With the reason that he wanted to be the first to hold his twins, then he did this.
Gerri was told, if she could do anything after getting a signal from the doctor, including when removing the baby, this signal would be notified if the doctor had released the baby. So, being too enthusiastic and so patient, Gerri did not hesitate to look up at his stomach which was being operated on. As if he didn’t feel anything, and didn’t feel afraid of his condition at that time Gerri couldn’t wait to see the doctor washing his hands back and forth.
When he saw the baby’s head was visible on the outside of the stomach, Gerri then reached out and grabbed the baby. The doctor, who was still taking care of the stomach and the baby, was shocked, because he had not given Gerri any instructions. (Other interesting articles: Baby girl name)
To avoid infection and trauma to Gerri’s stomach, the doctor then took out Gerri’s other baby. Luckily, Gerri’s two newborns were fine. They were immediately placed on Gerri’s chest. Seeing that her twins had been born and were the first to touch the baby, Gerri’s face was depicted with joy and enthusiasm. It’s just that doctors who see this condition are still confused about why Gerri is so brave to do this. It is rare to find a patient as brave as Gerri who dared to wake up and remove the twins himself from his stomach that was being operated on.
The twins born to Gerri were girls and then named Matilda (born weighing 3.04 kg) and Violet (born weighing 2.54 kg). For Gerri, this is not the first cesarean section process, because he has done the same 5 cesarean sections. However, doing something this brave was the first time for him, with the knowledge of Maternal assisted caesarean that he read from the internet, Gerri felt confident to do this.
Due to having performed a natural cesarean section which was so astonishing, the doctor had to monitor Gerri’s condition, because he was feared of the risk of infection and trauma to his stomach. This birth process is also the last process for her, because of the risk of stitches on Gerri’s stomach, who has repeatedly given cesarean delivery.
Repeated caesarean sections can also pose risks such as hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) which is almost 5 times higher in women, and the risk of blood transfusions is higher if you have had multiple cesarean sections.
Actually, some doctors do not recommend women to have cesarean section more than 3 times. A health website explains, cesarean section that is done repeatedly can allow complications. The complication is more likely to be abnormal placentation or placenta accreta. This abnormal placantation condition occurs in 1 in 2,500 pregnancies.
Even some of the other dangerous risks that may occur by doing a cesarean section with repeated uterine rupture, adhesions and scarring and placenta previa.
Meanwhile, not all hospitals in Australia agree with this maternal assisted caesarean method. A mother in England named Hannah Bragg also used a similar method of birth. However, this woman performed a maternal assisted caesarean by waiting for instructions and instructions from the doctor.
What an action that is so astonishing for a birth process, Mother. Even though we are too eager to wait for the arrival of our children, we should not do things that are outside the normal limits that seem to replace doctors’ duties, apart from being dangerous, this is also risky. Well, for mothers who want to go through the birth process, just counting the days. Congratulations looking forward and hopefully the birth will run normally and smoothly, mom.
