Caesarean section on maternal request: An obstetrician's dilemma
Now a day's mother requesting caesarean delivery is very much common in obstetrical practice. They mostly belief that elective caesarean is safer than vaginal delivery. Fear and anxiety of labour pain, fear of pelvic floor damage and the belief that caesarean section can prevent prolapse and sexual dysfunction are some of the reasons that pregnant mothers approach the obstetrician for elective caesarean section. It should be considered keeping in view the mother's perspective and also by providing clear, unbiased information of evidence based guidelines.
