Caesarean Section

Caesarean section, caesarian delivery, or C-section is a surgical procedure via abdomen and uterus incisions to deliver a baby. This may be prearranged when pregnancy complications are considered or if the woman previously delivered her baby through C-section and vaginal birth poses a high risk. Moreover, a caesarian delivery is often recommended when the mother’s labor is not progressing (the cervix is not dilating along with painful contractions), the baby is in an abnormal or breech position, the baby is in distress, the mother is carrying twins or more, there’s a problem with the placenta or umbilical cord, the mother has a health concern, or other pertinent factors..
