When planning labor and delivery, doctors may recommend a planned c-section when the mother and baby are at risk for complications during birth. In other cases, the need for an emergency c-section is possible when complications arise during natural, vaginal childbirth.
Vaginal childbirth, a treatment related to cesarean section, is always the first choice for doctors. Surgical procedures, such as cesarean sections are only recommended when it is safer than delivering the baby vaginally.
