Reasons for Procedure
The following situations may require a C-section:
- Large baby
- Baby is not in a head down position
- Maternal medical conditions (eg diabetes , high blood pressure , active herpes infection, HIV positive)
- Placenta previa —The placenta (the organ that links the mother and the baby) may be blocking the birth canal.
- Failure of labor to progress —Effective labor slows or stops before the baby is born.
- Baby shows signs of distress, such as an abnormal heart rate during labor
- Previous cesarean birth—In some cases, after one cesarean birth, it is best to have other babies delivered by cesarean.
- Fetal anomalies—Fetal problems that have been diagnosed by testing during the pregnancy may require a C-section.
