This is a discussion on Need to fast for elective c-sect? within the Third Trimester forum, part of the Pregnancy Forum category; Anyone knows?...
fasting should be minimum of 8 hours.
my c-sect was at 8.15am, was told to fast from 12am onwards.. that's y lotsa elective/scheduled c-sect is scheduled in the morning
I called my gynae's clinic and was told fasting starts 6hrs before scheduled c-sect.
mostly hospital will ask you fast at midnight, which is 12am.
cos they want you to sleep early also.
