Reviewing the clinical indicators for a C-section

If you have recently experienced childbirth, then you know firsthand the toll that it can exact on your body. Typically, you are willing to endure the ordeal due to the outcome it produces. Yet oftentimes, delivery complications can easily lead to injuries to you and/or your baby (regardless of whether you delivered vaginally or via C-section). Many from New York have come to us here at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP concerned about the latter, whether due to them questioning if they needed to have a C-section at all or being concerned that their doctor never recommending one. 

C-sections are becoming a much more common method of delivery in the U.S. (indeed, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists reports that nearly 35 percent of deliveries in New York are performed via this procedure). Yet the prevalence of C-section deliveries should not create the impression that the procedure itself is routine; on the contrary, a C-section is a major invasive surgery that can require an extended recuperative period. 

Still, there may be situations when delivering your baby via C-section is the best option in order to avoid the potential for injury to you and/or your little own. ACOG lists the most common indicators of a C-section delivery as being: 

  • Obstructed or abnormal labor
  • Abnormal fetal heart rate readings
  • Fetal malrepresentation (e.g., breech presentations)
  • Multiple gestations
  • Suspected fetal macrosomia (a large baby)

Communication between you and your doctor during the delivery process is vital to ensure that you can make informed decisions regarding yours and your baby's care. You should be allowed input in determining whether your delivery is progressing and when to start considering a C-section as a viable option.
