Didn't have mine tied down with either. Both different Drs and different states. I think you just need to ask. Why the curtain tho? Are they afraid you'll freak out at the sight of being cut open? I would love to see mine!

Re: Wrists tied up on both sides of the operating table

Mine were not tied but one of the nurses made a comment about it to the doctor and she said she doesn't do it but that some of the doctors there do. I am so glad they didn't I would have freaked out.

That andtokeep a sterile field. They offered to lower it for me but I declined. I wasn't interested in seeing that part of the birth. I'm glad I had the option. I used a CNM and got really lucky to have a great on call ob. He was all about making my birth experience mine, even if it wasn't my plan. His name is Dr. Cooper, and my lo is named Cooper. he was much more supportive than the CNM. I got unlucky that she was the one on rotation when I went into labor.

My arms were strapped for my first son but not for my second. With my first, I was so sick I didn't care but it would have made me panicky if my arms were strapped down for my second. I had the same doctor for both children.

I honestly don't remember. I know at least one of my hands was strapped down but I can't remember if they left one free or not.

I know at least one of my arms was free, because it repeatedly rose on its own. Such a weird experience. It just kept floating up, which the anesthesiologist said was normal and better if you didn't try to control it.

Re: Wrists tied up on both sides of the operating table

I didn't have my wrists strapped down. I didn't even realize that was an option! Just ask them this time if its possible to be un strapped because you already had a csection. I'm going to ask for all of this stuff!! Especially warm towels over my arms. It's freezing in there! What is up with that?

I had a section with baby #1 but not with baby #2 - my hands *and* arms were tied down - strapped to the bed in two different places. It sucked....
