Some pregnancies are difficult right from the get go. Rebecca Meldrum (AKA Mrs Meldrum) went through weeks of intense sickness, only to be told at her scan that there were issues with the pregnancy and her baby had a very small head. There was such a concern that she was booked in for an induction at just 36 weeks.
Unfortunately, getting induced that early is not easy and baby Poppy was not ready to come out. This is one heck of an emotional rollercoaster!

If it’s a straightforward and planned Cesarean, you will be in theatre for about 30 to 45 minutes. Sometimes it can take longer, particularly if there are complications or if you’ve had a c section before.
