    Risk for deficient fluid volume R/T increased blood loss secondary to surgery I believe would be the appropriate NANDA dx

    don't forget...

    Acute pain R/T surgical incision

    and of course

    Risk for infection R/T surgical incision

    and let's not discount

    Anxiety R/T unmet expectations of childbirth

    Risk for FVD also, that and risk for pain due to c/s , maybe even impaired skin integrity- that would probably be at the bottom.
