In this study we are trying to compare the safety and financial benefit of starting the realimentation early versus conventional oral intake following the Cesarean surgery in Iran.
Condition or disease
Procedure: Oral Intake following admittance to the postpartum ward
Cesarean delivery is announced to constitute 50% of deliveries in the Capital and 39% of all the deliveries nationwide, which is far beyond the acceptable international normal range, according to the official site of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education of the Islamic Republic of Iran [http://www.mohme.gov.ir/HNDC/Indicators/Simaye_Salamt/Simaye_Salamat.htm]. This high rate of elective cesarean deliveries might be due to several reasons which are far beyond the scope of this study. Here we tried to see whether the reduction in the time of hospitalization for these patients is safe at the expense of earlier oral realimentation and to see whether this strategy increases the patients' satisfaction or not.
