Sometimes a physician feels that a Cesarean Section should be performed. If you wish, your husband or support person can still be by your side, but photographs, video cameras and tape recorders are not allowed.

If your physician has scheduled a Cesarean in advance, be sure not to eat or drink anything from midnight before your surgery and until after your physician gives approval.

If you need to have an emergency Cesarean, only hospital staff members are allowed to be in your room during delivery.
