yes, 8 hour before the surgery, and for my case until the next morning 😶my gynae said afraid I will vomit, first I only allowed to hv apple juice or red date tea, if not vomit she will tell the nurse to gave m milo, and the next morning can hv porridge for breakfast, but somehow I didn't feel hungry, I only want to eat something nice after fasting for so long (but not hungry)

Here's an useful article on c-section: http://sg.theasianparent.com/ask-the-expert-special-on-c-sections/ You will be required to fast for 6 hours because of the anesthesia that will be administered.

I fasted for 10 hours (c-sect with epidural). I rem after the vigorous shake, I was feeling so hungry but was denied for food. Had to starve for another few hours before I was given food.

I kept begging for food. But wasn't given any until green light from gynae. He calmly told me " you are on drip. You r not starving."

Yes. Min 12 hrs if I recalled correctly. This is just in case u vomit during surgery or after dat. The feeling is terrible. Pls follow wat is being told to avoid complications.

I was told to fast for 8 hours before C-sect. Also, an hour before the surgery, the nurse inserted enema for me to clear my bowels.
