Tutor description

A cesarean birth, also known as C-section, happens through an incision in the abdominal wall and uterus rather than through the vagina. Some C-sections are planned due to pregnancy complications or because you've had a previous C-section. But, in many cases, the need for a first-time C-section doesn't become obvious until labor has already started. Knowing what to expect during the procedure and recovery can help the mother prepare. Base on the studies conducted by the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, College of Medicine, University of the Philippines Manila, that out of 9550 women undergone cesarean section, 2592 (27%) women and their 2645(27%) babies were born by caesarean. Actual rates varied from 12% to 39% between hospitals. Overall 27% of women had a caesarean section, with rates varying from 12% to 39% between hospitals within the Philippines. The most common indications for caesarean were previous caesarean (7.0%), cephalo- pelvic disproportion (6.3%), mal-present
