There are many factors that cause high productivity. For example, more and more women with chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, can also produce healthy fetuses. These high-risk pregnancies are more likely to be performed by surgery to ensure maternal and fetal health.

Modern pregnancy promoting drugs will increase the number of cases of multiple births, most of which require caesarean section.

At present, caesarean section is safer than some potentially dangerous natural births. For example, some very small preterm infants who cannot survive natural birth can now be safely born by caesarean section, and the survival rate is very high.

Decades ago, abdominal and uterine surgery and anesthesia were dangerous, so doctors had no choice. Unless in the most critical situation, they tried to produce naturally by birth canal. If the fetus cannot pass through the birth canal, the doctor will use pliers or tweezers to help the stuck fetus pass smoothly. However, this may be dangerous to the fetus. Now the production operation is much safer. Under the balance of risk and benefit, laparotomy is better than using pliers. Another example of partial caesarean section after risk assessment is that all breech fetuses are now recommended to be delivered by caesarean section. The results show that statistically, the risk of injury to breech fetuses caused by natural birth is higher than that by caesarean section.

The progress of modern production technology is also the reason for the high rate of caesarean section. Some drugs that help mothers reduce labor pains will also improve the chances of pregnant women needing caesarean section. Dural anesthesia – a godsend technology praised by many women as a major advance in obstetrics in this century – will also improve the chances of a cesarean section in some cases. In addition, electronic fetal monitors can detect fetal problems and alert doctors to intervene in production before the fetus is in danger. However, it is not easy to make correct judgment by relying on the readings of the monitor alone, and the wrong alarm may cause unnecessary panic, causing the whole production team to rush into the operating room.

Human beings have known for a long time that production carries risks, and prospective parents are willing to accept these risks. But today, whether it is good or bad, there is a mentality of “Caesarean section as soon as there is doubt” in every delivery room, which seems to be acceptable to prospective parents and doctors. Under such circumstances, doctors will not have the motivation to reduce the productivity of caesarean section.

Advances in modern surgery and anesthesia have made caesarean section much safer than it was decades ago. This technology has also saved the lives of many mothers and children. But this is a major operation after all, and it takes time to recover. Therefore, if it is not absolutely necessary, it should be avoided.

The reasons for the top five caesarean sections were: failure of labor process, caesarean section of anterior fetus, fetal distress, asymmetry of fetal head and pelvis, and active blister rash of mother. You have the ability to change all five factors.

The process of labor cannot be carried out: about 30% of cesarean section must be carried out because the process of labor cannot be carried out according to the general schedule. There are many factors that can cause insufficient cervical opening and / or no decline in the fetus. Some situations that cannot be carried out can not be avoided, such as the umbilical cord is too short. However, most cases are caused by improper support for pregnant women or violation of the basic physiological operation of childbirth. Among all the causes of caesarean section, “the process of labor cannot be carried out” is the one you can control most. Think about it. Other systems in your body rarely go wrong. Why should the delivery system alone go wrong? Of course, you must use the system according to its natural function.
