Here is some good information on reasons to avoid a cesarean delivery if possible. I am thankful that we have the option to have cesarean if medically indicated, but many people believe they are being done too often. There are several medical indications that definitely make a cesarean section a good choice. However it's not something to rush into. This website discusses many risk factors and encourages women to question health care providers thoroughly before agreeing to a cesarean delivery. Some people believe that cesarean deliveries are becoming almost "fashionable" but if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant, please take the time to research the risks associated with c/section for both mom and baby. Happy birthing!
