Will my baby get jaundice after a Caesarean?

Jaundice

It is common for caesarean section babies to develop jaundice shortly after delivery. The skin and whites of the eyes will turn a pale yellow. If you notice these changes, report them to your pediatrician. Most likely, your pediatrician will catch this first and do a blood test. In most cases it is usually nothing to worry about, and will clear up before you leave the hospital.
