TRANSCRIPT OF ANSWER
For a vaginal birth rather than the number one reason to not get a c section if you can avoid it, is that going home with the baby and incision on your abdomen. Often people think a lot about what labor is going to be like and I think about the delivery, but then there’s a whole bunch of things that happen after that. Mostly having to take care of a newborn. And that’s really hard to do when you’ve got a large incision. In addition, you know, all surgery has risks. And so, you know, when we do surgery, that’s about a three-fold higher risk of complications, hemorrhage, infection, organ injury, with c-sections compared to a vaginal delivery that being said, if you need a c-section we will take really good care of you. If we can avoid it, of course, those risks that aren’t worth taking.
