DANGERS OF ELECTIVE C-SECTIONS



     Caesarian births are wonderful in saving infant and mothers’ lives, IF THEY ARE MEDICALLY NECESSARY (breech birth, infection, complications, etc.). However, unless there is a definite medical reason to have one, it is MUCH safer for you and your baby to have a standard vaginal delivery. The “convenience of the doctor” or “because I want to go on vacation,” etc., etc. IS NOT A MEDICAL NECESSITY. DON’T RISK LIVES NEEDLESSLY. Babies born via Caesarians are several times more likely to die during the first months of life from multiple combinations of factors than those born full term naturally. Mothers having these operations are also at greater risk for complications, infection, illness and death.



     A medical study spanning all U.S. births over a three year period showed that babies born by elective, unnecessary caesarians are about four times as likely to die during the first month of life as a result of a caesarian than from SIDS, The Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.



1) Convenience of the doctor – Many doctors schedule them to “avoid the inconvenience” of a natural birth.
2) Convenience of the parents – Some people want predictability for work schedule convenience, etc.
3) Economic Pressure of the Hospital, doctors, insurance companies, etc. Hospital accountants “require” operating rooms to have a “full schedule” for “maximum profit” rather than maximum health.

If you feel “pressured” to get a Caesarian delivery for any reason other than medical necessity, be sure to get a second opinion!

So, if you are considering a Caesarian without any real medical justification, DON’T DO IT!! Since when is convenience more important than you or your baby’s life?
