Caesarean Section Increases The Risk of Complications Following Pregnancies

According to a study conducted by a team of researchers from the University of Bergen, in Norway, a Caesarean section at first calving would increase the risk of complications in future pregnancies.

So again we emphasize the risks that entails unnecessary practice of Caesarean sections.

To arrive at the conclusions, the authors analyzed data from a record in births in Norway: compared to a first vaginal birth, c-section doubles in the second pregnancy risks. These risks include the abnormalities of the placenta, pre-eclampsia or having a small baby.

The study, published in the journal “Obstetrics & Gynecology”, also highlights the importance of OB of a woman history, since if complications were excluded from the first delivery, the risks in the second pregnancy decreased.

Two previous Cesareans increased the risk of complications in a third pregnancy, even if the chances were similar to those recorded after a first c-section. In any case, it seems that there is one more reason that these interventions are not carried out as well as I, and is respected as far as possible the natural childbirth process.
