​Once you are inside the operating theater, our nursing team will:
  • Apply monitors to observe your blood pressure, pulse, and level of oxygenation
  • Assist the anesthetist and obstetrician
  • Listen to the baby’s heartbeat
  • Lightly trim some of the hair from the pubic area if needed
After your baby is born your midwife will warm and dry the baby, complete the baby’s first check up and ensure he/she is warm and breathing well. You baby will then be wrapped in blankets and can remain with you for the remainder of your time in the operating theater, if both you and baby are medically stable.
