Cesarean Section

Welcome to CHRISTUS Health, where the safety and well-being of you and your child are the top priorities. The dedicated team is committed to providing exceptional care through every step of your journey, including the option of a cesarean section (C-section) when necessary for the health of you and your baby.

Understanding C-Sections

A cesarean section, commonly referred to as a C-section, is a surgical procedure used to deliver a baby through incisions in the abdomen and uterus. This method is often recommended when a vaginal delivery would put you or your baby at risk. At CHRISTUS Health, C-sections are performed with the utmost care, ensuring a safe and welcoming environment for the arrival of your little one.

  • During the Procedure: Performed in a sterile operating environment, the surgery typically lasts about an hour, with your support person welcome to be by your side.
