    Normal delivery or cesarean

    Normal delivery or cesarean which is better? To my thought Normal is best, bcoz we are delivering our baby naturally. But today many of the people (not doctor) suggesting Cesarean.

    Whats the reason behind that. Can anyone share here the advantages and disadvantages of both normal and c-section delivery.

    Normal delivery has some pain at that time of delivery and you can get to normal life within a week but c-section has less pain compared to normal but you will be having life long problems like abdominal pain, back pain etc. for the whole of your life.

    Better to go for Normal delivery until your doctor insist you to go for c-section.

    C-section causes

    Here are the most common reasons for cesarean birth that i got from internet.

    1. Previous surgery on the uterus makes a cesarean necessary
    2. Placenta previa, to prevent excessive maternal bleeding that may affect the fetus.
    3. Abruptio placenta, to prevent rapid blood and oxygen loss to the baby as a result of the placenta separating.
    4. Herpes infection, a cesarean will prevent the possibility of passing it on to the baby through the birth canal.
    5. Severe toxemia, to prevent fetal complications.
    6. Fetal distress, as identified through ultrasounds and/or fetal monitoring.
    7. Abnormal fetal position, making it impossible for the baby to pass through the birth canal. An example would be a breech or transverse presentation.
    8. Diabetic mother, if the disease results in a very large baby, or poor blood flow to the placenta.
    9. Prolapsed cord, to prevent loss of oxygen to the baby.
    10. Cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD), when the baby’s head is too large to pass through the birth canal.
    11. Failure of labor to progress, or if oxytocin has not been effective.
    12. Forcep or vacuum failure.
