How does placenta position affect delivery?

Few females develop medical conditions like low-line placenta. In a few cases, the placenta almost completely covers the mouth of the uterus or cervix. So doctors don’t take chances of normal vaginal birth as it may pose a risk to mother and baby.

Other reasons for C-section delivery

In a few cases, doctors take chances for normal delivery. For example, under conditions of non-progress labor where the cervix is not open sufficiently, doctors opt for C Section delivery. 

What if the baby passes meconium in fluid?

Multiple pregnancies like twins or triplets, are also indications for caesarean or C-section. What is induced labor?

Doctors’ plan induced labor when the female is overdue or there is a fluid leakage due to circumstances. Even with any kind of bleeding, doctors induce labor pain in the patient. But this is an artificial method, and the female’s body doesn’t respond to these artificial medicines. Hence there is not enough dilatation in the uterus to support vaginal birth. So under these circumstances, doctors opt for C-section delivery to save the baby’s life.

Sometimes a mother’s underlying medical condition like heart disease or diabetes, also indicates C-section delivery. Even a condition of bp might lead to C-section.
