Cesarean (c-section) for twins

Cesarean delivery (c-section) is defined as the delivery of a fetus through surgical incisions made through the abdominal wall and the uterine wall. This is the moment when the mother and the family see their babies for the first time. All arrangements should be made so that this special moment is safe both for the mother and the babies, and they receive the care of the best healthcare professionals.

Cesareans are surgical procedures and can be categorized as primary – when it’s the first c-section – or repeated – when the c-section follows a previous one.

The term “multiple birth” refers to the birth of twins – two or more babies – and happens when several fetus have origin in the same pregnancy. Twins can be categorized as monozygotic or dizygotic. The monozygotic twins occur when a single fertilized egg splits into two after the conception. The incidence of monozygotic twins is constant in the world, with approximately four for every 1000 births. Dizygotic twins result from the fertilization and development of two different and independent eggs.

The decision to do a cesarean delivery (c-section) is performed for maternal indications, fetal indications, or both. The greatest indicators of a cesarean are a previous cesarean delivery and the fetus position that might indicate the difficulty of a natural birth. When the babies aren’t in an appropriate position for a natural birth or when complications are likely to occur, a twin cesarean is the choice. A twin cesarean is similar to a single fetus c-section, since there is no known risk for the mother or the fetus. Continuous care during a twin pregnancy is important because it allows predicting more precisely the date of birth and the most adequate way for the delivery.

In a surgical procedure, the administration of anesthetics is essential. The pre-anesthetic evaluation should take into account the wellbeing of both patients: the mother and the babies, the physiological changes of pregnancy and the fetuses health status. This pre-evaluation is similar for other preoperative patients, being advisable a pre-consultation with an anesthesiologist. The experience of labor is remarkable for a woman. Bonding and trust between obstetrics healthcare professionals, the pregnant woman and her family are fundamental. The mother-to-be should be able to concentrate in the babies and trust those professionals around her in every stage of the labor, as well as before and after it.
