Week 33. Don't get too married to your dream delivery: Even if you're hoping for a vaginal birth, there's a nearly 1 in 3 chance you'll have a C-section.I do not have a problem with C-Sections. They save lives. I think they are a medical blessing in many ways. But I do have a problem with that statistic- 1 in 3?!! That's ridiculous. One in three pregnancies are not so severe they need emergency c-sections. We have just become way to highly dependent on C-Sections and just resort to them for all kinds of reasons that are not warranted.
Yes some woman cannot vaginally birth their child. Yes some babies go into distress during labor. Yes some crazy scary things happen during labor. These are the situations that call for a C-Section. And of all the births that happen every minute, you are telling me 1 in 3 are this type of situation??
No... 1 in 3 are more than likely situations where hospital staff are too impatient to let a woman's body labor- to do what it was designed to do. Sometimes that takes more time than we like. 1 in 3 are situations where hospital staff look at a woman and just assume she cant vaginally birth a baby bc of her build... even though 4' women in foreign countries push large babies out everyday and cook dinner that night. 1 in 3 are situations where women are lead to believe this is their only option... really? That annoys me.
1 in 3...
