bit random should have asked by now but i booked in for section on Wednesday eeek! I'm not meeting with anaesthetics/surgeon untill late Tuesday night so I won't have an oppertunity to ask, what are the rules on nails? I normally have fibreglass extremely short overlay French polish so basically clear- is this allowed? I know you can't have colour X

Hmm alba not sure entirely but my understanding is that anything occluding your nail can prevent getting an oxygen reading from your nail. I was wondering about toe nail varnish as was hoping to treat myself to a pedicure but may need c section next month. Be interesting to know! 😁
Good luck weds, can I ask how much notice they gave you for your admission? X

Hi Alba was just reading your post and I had my section 3 years ago and I went in with a full set of nails and painted toes. Whether the rules have changed or not I don't know but I wasn't told otherwise and had no problems no one told me to take them off. Ive seen people dolled up to the max when having their babies ha ha x x

Alba - cant believe your time has come round already! Good luck for Wednesday.
My friend gave birth last Tuesday and had a full set on both fingers and toes....she was natural though but I assume anyone could end up having a Cesarean.
