Emergency c section survey

1. How large was your baby (weight, length, head circumference)?

2. What was the reason given for your emergency Cesarean section?

3. What fetal descent station did your baby's head make it to by the time the surgery was decided on? Please see image for reference: http://smartimagebase.com/fetal-descent-stations-birth-presentation/view-item?ItemID=8741

4. Was your baby's head visible to people other than the doctor by the time the surgery was decided on?

5. Were forceps and/or vacuum attempted before the surgery was called for?

6. Did you receive an episiotomy? If yes, did they stitch you up or let you heal on your own?

7. Did the doctor or nurse have to go in vaginally and push your baby's head back up the birth canal to facilitate easier removal of the baby during the surgery? If yes, was the whole hand used or just the fingers?

8. Since your baby was not able to fully crown and thus not able to stretch your vaginal opening, how did your vagina feel/look IMMEDIATELY AFTER the surgery (i.e. looked and felt as tight as pre-pregnancy, looked/felt like it was "stretched", etc)?

9. Since your baby was not able to fully crown and thus not able to stretch your vaginal opening, how did your vagina feel/look A FEW DAYS AFTER the surgery (i.e. looked and felt as tight as pre-pregnancy, looked/felt like it was "stretched", etc)?

10. Since your baby was not able to fully crown and thus not able to stretch your vaginal opening, how did your vagina feel/look WHEN YOU RESUMED SEXUAL ACTIVITY (i.e. looked and felt as tight as pre-pregnancy, looked/felt like it was "stretched", etc)?

I'm interested to see the responses. I had a c-section, but it wasn't an emergency.

1.  1lb 14oz and 14 inches long (Not sure about his head circumference)

2.  Severe acute pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome.

3-7  I only made it to 28 weeks and I was not in labor so these don't apply to me.

8-9  No pain and it was exactly the same.

10. Having sex was very painful the first time after my c-section.
