We approached women undergoing elective caesarean delivery
to determine fasting practices for liquids and solids before and after developing and initiating a patient-directed educational pamphlet (Appendix 1.
has higher maternal surgical risks for current and subsequent pregnancies.
Frequencies and percentages were calculated for qualitative variables like parity and history of previous caesarean delivery
Despite the evidence, high-yield, low-cost interventions that can address inadequacies in emergency caesarean delivery
quality remain largely unimplemented (8).
An analysis of neonatal birth weights of less than 4 kg, 4 to 4.24 kg, 4.25 to 4.5 kg, and greater than 4.5 kg showed a reduction in vaginal birth after caesarean delivery
success rates from 68%, 52%, 45%, and 38%, respectively.
The authors say they cannot be certain that caesarean delivery
causes higher body weight, as the association may be explained by other factors that weren't recorded in the data they analysed.
The admission VBAC scoring system is useful in counselling women with previous caesarean for the option of induction of labour or repeat caesarean delivery
We investigated the incidence of and risk factors for persistent pain after caesarean delivery
. Over a 12-month period, women having caesarean delivery
were recruited prospectively at an Australian tertiary referral centre.
Consequently, most women have negative recollections of their birth experience and prefer caesarean delivery
in subsequent pregnancies.
"Since the vast majority of women with a previous Caesarean delivery
elect a repeat Caesarean delivery
, since more than 25 percent of primary Caesarean deliveries are performed before the onset of labor and since there may be increasing enthusiasm for Caesarean delivery
on maternal request, the timing of Caesarean delivery
and its effect on infant outcomes have substantial public health importance," the study authors wrote.
The rate of caesarean delivery
was lowest (16%) in women with a cervical length in the lowest quartile at midpregnancy.
A prospective cohort study, within the 2005 WHO global survey on maternal and perinatal health, has assessed the risks and benefits associated with caesarean delivery
compared with vaginal delivery.
