Unexplained antepartum stillbirth in pregnancies after a caesarean delivery
Objective: The objective of the study is to compare the effect of syntocinon administration on intraoperative mean arterial pressure in elective caesarean delivery
which has significantly reduced Maternal and Neonatal Mortality, both in the developed and developing countries is now being labelled as the latest example of medicalization due to its rising incidence.
If the association proves to be causal, "maladaptive immune activation due to an absence of stress response before birth in children born by prelabor caesarean delivery
could be considered as a potential mechanism," the researchers wrote (Lancet Haematol.
Such findings indicate that although availability of services such as caesarean delivery
is on par, the quality of the services remains poor.
2-5 New evidence is emerging to indicate that VBAC may not be as safe as originally thought and that vaginal delivery after previous caesarean section resulted in more maternal complications than a repeat caesarean delivery
which identified VBAC as a high-risk delivery requiring the availability of an anesthesiologist, an obstetrician and an operating room on standby.
It is the largest to show a link between caesarean delivery
and BMI in adulthood.
Results: Of the total, 67 (67%) women delivered vaginally, while 33 (33%) ended in repeat caesarean delivery
Over a 12-month period, women having caesarean delivery
were recruited prospectively at an Australian tertiary referral centre.
Consequently, most women have negative recollections of their birth experience and prefer caesarean delivery
in subsequent pregnancies.
Since the vast majority of women with a previous Caesarean delivery
elect a repeat Caesarean delivery
, since more than 25 percent of primary Caesarean deliveries are performed before the onset of labor and since there may be increasing enthusiasm for Caesarean delivery
on maternal request, the timing of Caesarean delivery
and its effect on infant outcomes have substantial public health importance," the study authors wrote.
The rate of caesarean delivery
was lowest (16%) in women with a cervical length in the lowest quartile at midpregnancy.
