Intra-partum care: Caesarean section
Caesarean sections are sometimes done because the mother has had previous section. Alternatively a cesarean section may be done because there was a problem in her labour and the baby needed to be delivered urgently. The midwife will accompany the mother to theatre, but there will also be a theatre nurse, anaesthetist and doctor to perform the operation.
£80 is a lot of money for a local family to find, and often can’t manage the whole of the fee.
