The Hospital Quirónsalud Marbella has announced the implementation of the humanized cesarean section in its care protocol for pregnant women in their final stretch of pregnancy.
The head of the Obstetrics and Gynecology service at Quirónsalud Marbella Hospital, the Dr. Isabel Maria Blanco Herráezexplained “when the vast majority of women face the moment of childbirth, they are very afraid of what is going to happen and how this episode, which is one of the most important moments of their lives, is going to unfold. This uncertainty is amplified when It has to be done by C-section because of the surgical environment.
“But, today, we are proud to offer the humanized caesarean section since this alternative means obtaining the same Benefits acquired and good praxis of natural childbirth”, he added.
The humanized cesarean section procedure is designed to create a welcoming and friendly environmentwhere the mother is the absolute protagonist of the special moment of welcoming her baby, Quirónsalud Marbella pointed out in a statement.
To do this, the expert emphasizes that the involvement of the staff accompanying the mother in the process is essential: “the main change with respect to conventional caesarean section is the presence in the couple’s room, which mitigates the stress of the mother who can share this unique experience with the person she wants. Another of the especially valued moments is the moment in which the mother is offered the possibility of being the first to receive her baby when it comes out of the uterus and accommodate it on her chest to promote skin-to-skin contact “.
“It is a wonderful occasion in which the family bond between the mother and the newborn is created. In addition, if the case arises and the baby demands food, the mother can start breastfeeding in the same room”, she added. For doctor Blanco Herráez, the humanized caesarean section is an ideal option in those medical circumstances in which natural childbirth cannot be performed.
“Our first option and the preferred one is that the birth be natural, but there are circumstances in which we must opt for a caesarean section due to the existence of a pathology, a bad positioning of the baby or, for example, when the dilation phase is interrupted. and it is not possible to complete the induction. For cases like these, our staff has been trained and is able to attend this new generation of caesarean section away from the conventional model, colder and without the participation of the pregnant woman”.
