Cesarean-related birth injury incidents may soon fall

Whenever a New York doctor elects to perform a medical procedure on a patient, he or she must take into consideration risks and potential complications that can arise as a result of surgery. In fact, there are instances where performing surgery can actually place the patient in greater danger than choosing another course of treatment. While the trend of performing unnecessary cesarean deliveries has been on the rise for years now, there is finally evidence to suggest that doctors and patients alike are rethinking the practice.

Members of the medical community largely agree that natural childbirth is safer for mothers and babies than cesarean delivery. Not only do vaginal deliveries pose fewer risks and potentially life-threatening medical complications to women, but they pose fewer dangers to babies as well. Babies that are born by C-section can experience issues like respiratory difficulties and serious birth injuries, while mothers may be subject to complications such as blood clots and infections. And once a patient has a C-section, she is typically unable to deliver a child naturally ever again.

Despite the risks associated with cesarean deliveries, they became increasingly common over the past several years. Experts explain that some doctors turn to cesarean delivery because it can be much faster than vaginal birth, and protects physicians against the prospect of medical malpractice allegations in some cases.

The troubling trend of subjecting mothers and newborn babies to unnecessary medical complications associated with C-section deliveries may actually be on the decline, since the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that surgical delivery rates have declined by approximately 2 percent over a three-year period. In places like New York the shift is even more dramatic, since it is estimated that there has been a five-percent decrease in cesarean deliveries.
