A recent research conducted by Australian researchers has found that mums giving birth to their first babies in private hospitals are more likely to go in for C-section. The vaginal birth rates are on decline among the new mums.
For the research, the researchers studied the data of 691,738 mums. These women gave birth in the hospitals of New South Wales from 2000 to 2008. The findings of the study have been published in the British Medical Journal's Open journal.
While writing in the journal, the researchers noted, "The fact that these procedures which were initially life-saving are now so commonplace and do not appear to be associated with improved perinatal death rates demands close review".
Surgery is offered to the expecting mum when her life is suspected to be at risk. But, the wide growing demand of the surgeries has lowered the usefulness of the surgeries. Women under low-risk groups are also opting for the surgical delivery instead of natural or vaginal birth.
Women should look forward for natural birth instead of surgery. The recovery of a woman after natural birth is faster as compared to the surgical birth. Women of the US are already looking forward to natural births because of it benefits and early recovery.
