In the United States an average 33% of our deliveries are C-sections. Even though there are complications in labors C-sections are not as safe as a regular vaginal birth even when complications arise.

What reasons do women receive as to why they need a C-section?

Often, they’re told there are risks involved with having a vaginal birth after Cesarean. What they don’t tell women is the risks involved with having a C-section.
Women are told the delivery is too slow, so they must perform a C-section which slow delivery is common most of the time.
Lots of C-sections are done because of signs of the baby’s heart. Studies show that peculiar looking heart rhythms on a baby being born result in 99% error and 99% of those babies born turn out to be fine.
Along with a C-section there are many risks involved and sometimes it comes down to the impatience of the medical staff.

Risks of a C-section

  • Maternal death
  • Heart failure or Cardiac Arrest
  • Urgent hysterectomy
  • Clots in the blood
  • Anesthetic complications
  • Infections
  • Hematoma
  • Wound complications open sores
  • Longer stay at Hospital
  • Having to be readmitted to the hospital

Not every delivery has to be rushed and there are many risks involved with receiving a C-section. The last thing a Mother should have to worry about during delivery is the health and safety of her and her child.
