Cesarean

I'm not understanding the Cesarean information. Was there something in the novel that hinted at a Cesarean? If not, that part of the note should be removed since it just introduces ideas that aren't present. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:19, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

  • Additionally, it's not at all uncommon for a mother to receive local rather than general anaesthesia for a c-section. C-section does not automatically mean unconscious.--Hardvice (talk) 20:20, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
    • Good points. I'll reword the note.--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:22, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
    • My wife had two and was completely conscious for both. (Quite an experience, I might add!) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 20:22, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
      • If unconscious, the mother cannot concentrate to push the baby out so it is normally done by c-section. That is what I meant. I tried to clarify it, but feel free to clarify further.--MiamiVolts (talk) 20:27, 1 April 2008 (EDT).
  • I find that part of the note rather confusing, regardless. Perhaps she had the babies when she was unconscious, but, believing she didn't know she had something(s) inside of her for 9 months takes more than a leap of faith. Even if the babies were removed as early as possible while still being able to live, I would assume she'd have realized something was amiss. Perhaps she did not realize she was having twins. I, again, find that hard to believe, but again, see it as possible. :/ -- Lulu (talk) 21:31, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
    • Right, presumably they were born at the same time if they were "separated at birth". The mother may not have known she was having more than one.--MiamiVolts (talk) 21:37, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
      • I'd much rather leave the note as just what we know and can observe, and leave everything else out. Something like "In a dream, Debbie tells Piper that they were separated at birth. In waking life, Piper believes her dream, but her mother does not." -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:59, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
