Is anybody else REALLY bothered by the term unnecesarean? Unnecessary cesarean
It just seems like some people I run into seem to think that if they can have the next baby vaginally that the surgery must not have been needed. While I will agree that it seems that doctors talk about CPD too frequently,fetal presentation is everything and even small changes can make a big difference.
Now ok I'm in a different area of the US: we move around in labor(sometimes even if we don't want to),time limits are more safety limits(they tend to be 24-48 hours),even with an epidural women push in a few different positions, I know more people who've had a 20 + hour labor then a cesarean. We still have about a 21% primary cesarean rate and we have a high VBAC right. People still throw this term around where I am and bring up the national rate even though your average local hospital has a c-section rate of about 17%.
Anybody else sick of this term? It just seems like people decide that their doctor was wrong because of what they read on some internet site or in some book. Done venting.
