Cesarean Births | Sturdy Memorial Hospital | Attleboro, MA

Cesarean Births

If you are scheduled for a cesarean (C-section), you will be admitted to the hospital on the morning of your delivery date. When you arrive on the floor, your nurse will bring you to your LDRP suite and assist you in getting comfortable.

You will have all of your preoperative labs completed in your suite and will meet with the OB/GYN conducting the delivery as well as the anesthesiologist who will go over your plan for anesthesia. A spinal is the most common form of anesthesia during a cesarean.


Once you have been prepped, you will be brought to the operating room (OR) on the Weber Maternity Unit. After receiving the spinal, your partner will be able to join you at your side during the procedure.

After Delivery

When your baby is delivered, he or she will be brought into the warming unit which adjoins the OR. The pediatric nurse practitioner, courtesy of Women & Infants Hospital, will complete a quick evaluation. Once the short evaluation is done, your baby will be brought to you in the OR for bonding.

Skin-to-Skin Contact

Your baby may be placed skin-to-skin in the OR if the situation permits. Nurses will assist to ensure you and your baby are kept safe. Once the procedure is complete, you will be brought back to your LDRP suite to recover and bond with your baby.
