Hello doctor,

Is it possible to do birth control surgery also during C-section during delivery?



Welcome to

Yes, you can opt for tubal ligation during cesarean section but you have to give consent for the same prior to the cesarean. Usually, the doctor proceeds with the ligation only after the pediatrician confirms that the baby is doing fine. If not, then you are being informed on the table and the doctor usually avoids the procedure in good faith considering the condition of the neonate. The procedure can then be performed after six months to nine months by laparoscopy once the child has been found to be growing healthily.
