Its not possible to say what mode of delivery should be conducted. Only her doctor upon examination of the patient can declare so. The problems you have mentioned are all minor and are not reasons for a surgical delivery. Unless there is any obstetric contraindication,there is no reason why there surgery should be done. However, i stress, that circumstances at that point are important. If the doctor feels there is any distress to mother or fetus, surgery might be recommended. Anemia,low BP pain etc are all common problems at this advanced stage of pregnancy. They can be managed. Normal delivery can be a long process but recovery time is faster than surgical delivery.Of course,with any kind of surgery,some complications may occur like infection,blood loss etc. Nowadays these problems are less commonly seen. Surgical delivery is commonly done throughout the world and nothing to worry about.

it is said that under normal delivery mothers health remains good but baby health may be little bit compromised whereas under surgical method its the otherway. Please also guide in this regard.

During a normal delivery if the labour is smooth without complications, then the fetus will surely be healthy. But yes, sometimes,if complications occur, then fetal distress is a possibility. On the other hand,in surgery, delivering the fetus is usually much easier. Please note, fetal distress can occur at any time and even after a safe delivery. Nowadays, most patients prefer surgical delivery by choice. Talk to your doctor about complications and make an informed decision.

she is unable to digest properly and every time she finishes meal she feel discomfort. she is taking diavol medicine. Today she vomited twice and once with some blooting also. please suggest if this is for acidity. how to go about this situation.
Answered by Dr. Rhea Chanda 2 hours later
Yes,acidity is common at this late stage of pregnancy. Some people are more prone to it than others. Change to a completely bland,non-oily,non-spicy diet. Avoid caffeine and ceffeinated drinks. Take omeprazole capsule daily on an empty stomach. For a week at least. Then switch over to syrup digene or gelusil.Drink plenty of water. Dont go to sleep soon after eating. Walk around for at least 45 mins and then lie down.
