New Guidelines Say Doctors Need to Reduce C-Sections

New guidelines are saying doctors need to reduce C-sections and opt for natural births. According to reports, doctors should show more patience in the delivery room in order to prevent unnecessary surgery.

Co-author of the guidelines for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Dr. Aaron Caughey told reporters:

“Labor takes a little longer than we may have thought.”

The increase in C-sections for first time births is due to the labor progressing slowly. In 2012, a study was done by the National Institutes of Health which found that one stage of birth now takes over 2 hours longer compared to data from the 1960’s. This is due in large part to women giving birth to their first child later in life. However, it also has to do with restrictions using epidurals that slow the labor process down.

The average labor can last anywhere from 2 hours to a whole day. However, instead of waiting for the baby to come out naturally, doctors have been pushing for C-sections to help speed up the process.

While C-sections are relatively safe, it is still considered a surgical procedure that has many risks to both the mother and the infant. Michele Ondeck, Lamaze International president, stated that women need to learn more about labor and be better informed on the process:

“They need to have a better understanding of what normal labor is.”
