Cord prolapse, placenta previa, placenta abruption. uterus rupture, TRUE fetal distress, maternal distress, eclampsia, transverse presentation.  Those are what are TRUE emergent reasons to have a c-section.

 In 50 hours on more pitocin then they were supposed to have me on I had only progressed from 3 to 6 cm. I started getting a fever/infection and then they decided it was time for a c-section.

I ended up having and emergency c-section when the doctors discovered that the baby was full breech after I was already into active labor.

Quoting truealaskanmom:

And these can also be sometimes reasons, too. 
There are women who might have one of these complications and are still able to avoid a cesarean~~

;-)

Depending on who you hire to attend your delivery (their philosophy-experience-training), you might have a vaginal/cesarean delivery.   So it's really worth investigating & interviewing, then staying informed & educated (and supported) through the entire pregnancy and delivery.



Are you considering a cesarean?

Do you know why you were getting a fever/infection?
Were your membranes ruptured, did you have an epidural?

Why do you think the baby didn't descend?

At 42 1/2 weeks my son never dropped and I never dialated. An ultrasound revieled that he was running low on amniotic fluids because he was so large (he was actually stuck in my pelvis), so I had to have a c-sec.
