do you think most of the time they are unessecary? and i mean that by the doctors rushing things bc they dont have the time to sit there as you labor? or they make up some excuse of WHY you need one, but what of turned out just fine to deliver the normal way?
also question #2.. do you think that if they are going to perform a c-section, they should be held liable to fix the scars on your belly?

  • 1/3 of US babies are born via c-section. It's about 1/2 in China. Studies show that the wealthier the country, the more c-sections they perform. The WHO even thinks it's about money and the WHO loves money.

    It's illogical that 1 generation is all it took for women to become unfit to give birth without surgery. C-sections in the 1960s were about 5%. So a quarter of the women suddenly became unable to give birth without a scalpel? Even though their mothers did it? Nope. Not buying it.

  • i'm with the first 'poster' here. i see how it could be easy to think that, but doctors just want you and your baby to be healthy and safe. :)

  • I disagree with your guesses about why C-sections are done. They are most of the time done to enable the baby to be born or save the baby's life or to prevent a serious bleeding problem from killing the Mom. If a Doctor did a C-section for HIS convenience, he would be sued and you know malpractice suits are the last thing Doctors want. There are too many negative comments about Doctors here at Cafe Mom.

  • #1. I have no idea if they are unnecessary. The doctors and mothers make that decision on a case-by-case basis. Mine was necessary. I'm glad the doctor knew how to do one.

    2. No, that's stupid.
