Full description

Traditionally, patients are not given fluids or food after cesarean sections until bowel function returns as evidenced by bowel sounds, passage of stool or flatus since , uneventful (uncomplicated) cesarean sections have no effect on intestinal functions and with putting in minds the need of the mother for early hydration , movement , breast feeding and early discharge; that is why we are investigating the effectiveness and safety of early oral hydration after cesarean sections
