Women who have undergone a cesarean section are suffering the same trauma men do and it’s only because we’re afraid to speak up, a leading GP has said.
Speaking to the RTÉ’s The Late Late Show, Dr Leann Farrars said women were more likely to feel ashamed for speaking out in public because they are afraid of being labelled a “bitch”.
Dr Farras said she would like to see all women being able to make their own decisions and make a choice about whether or not to have a c-section.
“If you are a pregnant woman, it’s probably your right as a woman to decide what you want, if you want to be in a hospital and not in pain and pain,” she said.
You are in a life or death situation, you don’t want to have that moment.””
I want you to think about it.
You are in a life or death situation, you don’t want to have that moment.”
You can’t be the one who says ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
“Dr Fargars said doctors are working to make sure that women are educated about the risks of c-sections.
She said the number of women in hospital with a cedarean in Ireland has increased from 3,000 in 2005 to 16,000 today.”
Women are being diagnosed with pre-existing conditions and the doctors are treating those conditions and not treating the pain of the cesarian section, the pain in the stomach and the back and the neck and the pain that comes after the c-Section,” she told The Late Night with Conan O’Brien.”
There is a need for more awareness and better information about the issues of pre- and post-partum.
“We’re trying to educate doctors, patients, and the public about the importance of cesaring.”
It’s very difficult to make that decision for a woman who is not sure whether she wants to go into labour or not.
“She is probably thinking, ‘I don’t know if I’m going to make it.
What is important is that women understand that cesarians can be very painful and that they can be life threatening and there is a big risk that they will go into a caesareans if they are not able to talk to their doctors about the options.””
It is a very difficult decision and we need to be very careful in terms of how we communicate it to women.”
What is important is that women understand that cesarians can be very painful and that they can be life threatening and there is a big risk that they will go into a caesareans if they are not able to talk to their doctors about the options.
“They need to understand the risks that go with it.”
Dr Fargs also spoke about the impact that the internet has on our society.
“People who are on the internet are very different to people who are out and about in society.
They are very, very connected,” she explained.”
Some people who live on the Internet are really close to the people who use the internet.”
The internet has changed everything.
“Everyone is connected.
People who have been online for a long time are connected to everyone.”
Everything is connected now.
It’s not about a specific location.
“Every time I’m on the phone I’m being connected.
I can connect to anyone.”
