It's Quicker Than You'd Think
Barring any complications, you'll meet your baby minutes after you're wheeled into the OR. I don't remember the details of the timing with my first, but I do know my son was born within minutes of me being rushed into the OR. For my second, I went into surgery at my scheduled time of 12:30 p.m., and he was born 34 minutes later. And with my third, we got started a little before 8 a.m., and she arrived at 8:15 a.m.
You'll be on the table a little longer as they close you up, but at that point, you're so distracted by your newborn that you're being wheeled into the recovery room before you know it.
