Question:On what basis it is decided by doctors to go with normal delivery or c section
Answer: There are some health conditions that can make it safer for you or your baby if you have a C-section.Sometimes the baby or the placenta is located in the uterus in ways that makes a vaginal birth more risky.
Conditions that might lead the doctor to advise a C-section include:
1.If you have a heart problem that could make going through a vaginal delivery dangerous for you.
2.If you have high blood pressure that makes it important that the child be delivered immediately. High blood pressure related to a pregnancy is called pre-eclampsia.
3.If you have an infection that could be transmitted to your child during a vaginal birth. Examples include genital herpes and HIV/AIDS.
4.If your baby is breech or transverse, a C-section may be safer. A breech baby is positioned so that the feet or bottom would come out first. A transverse baby is lying in the uterus so that it enters the birth canal sideways with its side or shoulder first. Mothers pregnant with multiples often have one that is not in the normal head-facing down position.
5.If you have two or more babies that share a placenta, you may need a C-section to prevent one of them from not getting enough oxygen during birth.
6.If you have placenta previa, a C-section might be necessary. Placenta previa occurs when the placenta covers your cervix. Because the baby must pass through the cervix to be born, it is dangerous for it to be covered by the placenta.
7.You may also need a C-section if the umbilical cord, through which the baby gets oxygen and nutrients, is squeezed. This can happen if part of the cord goes through the birth canal before the baby. This is dangerous because it means that the oxygen supply to the baby during birth may be restricted.
8.You have a fractured pelvis or an unusually small pelvis.
9.You have a fibroid that is in your birth canal which would prevent the baby from fitting through.
10.Your baby has an unusually large head
11.You are in labor with strong contractions, but your cervix is not opening to allow the baby through.
12.The doctor has tried to induce labor, but it was ineffective.
