Doctor: HiThank you for the question,Caesarean section is a commonly performed operation for the birth of a baby when dif ficulties arise either for the mother or for the baby. Nausea and vomiting are common and distressing symptoms, which can occur during the procedure if the woman is awake or they can also occur after the procedure. Low blood pressure and some of the medications administered during the procedure may contribute to the nausea and vomiting. Epidurals also cause headaches for a few days. You can treat this by keeping your head low and below you heart and legs.If the problem continues to be to talk to your Doctor.I hope this will help you. Have a nice day.
