Welcoming a new life into the world is a profound and life-changing experience, and Dr Raul Fuentes is committed to supporting you through every step of this incredible journey.

Our childbirth services cater to various needs and preferences, from natural vaginal deliveries to caesarean sections, ensuring every family's experience is as comfortable and positive as possible.

What child birthday options are available?

Childbirth is a unique experience for every woman, and we offer tailored options to suit individual preferences and medical needs. Dr Fuentes performs vaginal delivery and C-section births at Mediclinic Thabazimbi Hospital.

  • Vaginal: This is the most common form of childbirth. We support and guide you through natural labour, offering techniques for pain management and ensuring a safe delivery for both mother and baby. Our team is equipped to provide a nurturing environment, making your natural birth experience as comfortable as possible.
  • Caesarean: In some cases, a C-section may be necessary for the safety of the mother and baby. This surgical procedure involves delivering the baby through incisions in the abdomen and uterus. Dr Fuentes and his team are highly skilled in performing caesarean sections, prioritising the well-being and recovery of the mother while ensuring the safe delivery of the baby.

How do you determine the best childbirth method?

Choosing the best method for childbirth is a decision made based on various factors, including your health, your baby's health, and your personal preferences. Dr Fuentes and his team will work closely with you throughout your pregnancy to monitor your health and the baby's development.

We provide comprehensive information and guidance to help you make an informed decision that feels right for you and your family.

How do I prepare for a caesarean section?

If a C-section is planned or becomes necessary, Dr Fuentes and his team will thoroughly prepare you for the procedure. We provide detailed information about what to expect before, during, and after the surgery, ensuring you feel informed and at ease. Our focus is on making your C-section experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

What is cervical cerclage, and who needs it?

Cervical cerclage, commonly known as a cervical stitch, is a procedure offered to women with cervical incompetence. This condition means the cervix may begin to open prematurely during pregnancy, increasing the risk of miscarriage or preterm birth.

The cervical cerclage procedure involves placing a stitch around the cervix to help it stay closed during pregnancy, significantly improving the chances of carrying the baby to term.

What postpartum care and support can I expect?

After the birth of your baby, our care continues. We provide assistance with breastfeeding, advice on newborn care, and monitoring your recovery. Our goal is to ensure you and your baby have a healthy and happy start to your new life together.
