    Cesarean section is one of the most commonly performed procedures for women, with almost a third of women in many developed countries experiencing cesarean section when they give birth. The rate of cesarean section births is increasing and the reasons for this are complex. There are well-documented risks for the woman and her infant with cesarean section birth, both in the current pregnancy and in a subsequent pregnancy. Modifiable risk factors must be addressed if we are to avoid an increasing number of women experiencing serious cesarean-related health complications.
