“Babies born after in vitro maturation (IVM) fertility treatment are more likely to be born larger than normal and to have more difficult births requiring more obstetric interventions such as caesareans, a review has suggested.”
“Most Indian doctors say they refuse requests for unnecessary caesareans.”
“From the health historian Louise Foxcroft, describing maternal-request caesareans as "absurd vanity" and an example of society's "ever-present gynophobia", to Jenni Murray in the Daily Mail, lamenting this extension of maternal choice as a "victory" for the vanity of the "too posh to push brigade", the columnar consensus has been resoundingly of the view that nature knows best.”
“Applied to the increase in decadent caesareans for women who can't even be bothered to have a free orgasm, the paradoxical injunction would require clinicians to tell women to go right ahead and do that, yes, to have their stupid, selfish caesareans, quite guiltlessly, as if it was just as good as a normal birth and the NHS really did not care one way or the other about the appalling waste of money.”
“The result, if it worked, would be an immediate explosion of disgust from women, of all types and political denominations, which would deplore "the folly of caesarean births for everyone", "the madness of caesareans on demand" and caesareans as a "lifestyle choice", then, for good measure, feature a selection of prominent, Too Much Information-defying victims' stories depicting the hideous truth behind this perversion of consumer choice.”
“One popular explanation for the rise in caesareans is that clinicians wish, self-servingly, to lower the risk of litigation following deaths or injuries in childbirth.”
“They recommend planned caesareans for women with medical indications such as the placenta covering the neck of the womb, a twin pregnancy in which one baby doesn't look as if they will be delivered head first and a breech, in which the baby can't be turned.”
“And 41 per cent of babies are born at between 37 and 39 weeks – a figure that is on the rise, largely because of an increase in nonemergency or elective caesareans.”
“With most planned caesareans carried out at 39 weeks, the finding raises concerns that women who have the operation for non-medical reasons could unwittingly be endangering the health and prospects of their children.”
“Caveat: Children with idiopathic toe walking gait had a higher incidence of interventions at birth, such as emergency caesareans.”
