Risks associated with unnecessary cesarean sections

Chances are, either you, your wife or someone else you know in New York delivered a baby via cesarean section, and whether that C-section was medically necessary might be up for debate. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we understand that your chances of having a C-section vary broadly based on certain factors, and one such factor is the hospital in which you give birth.

According to Consumer Reports, physicians deliver about a third of all American babies via C-section these days, and the procedure has become so commonplace that it is now the single-most commonly performed surgery in the nation. However, research shows that most expectant mothers would prefer to deliver their babies in the traditional method, raising important questions about whether all these C-sections are medically necessary, or whether they endanger women without due cause.

A recent investigation revealed that the prevalence of C-section births for low-risk deliveries varied broadly from one American hospital to the next, suggesting that some hospitals perform these surgeries even when they are not medically necessary. Performing unnecessary C-sections, though, can potentially lead to a wide range of complications for the mother.

For example, a mother who delivers her first child via C-section is three times more likely to experience serious complications, or even die, during childbirth, than a mother who delivers her baby vaginally. Heart attacks, blood clots and serious infections are all more common among mothers who under C-section deliveries, as opposed to vaginal births. C-section deliveries are also more likely than traditional ones to cause mothers to develop sepsis, a potentially life-threatening complication associated with infection.
