Résumé

La césarienne sur demande maternelle englobe une grande variété de situations qui ne se réduisent pas toutes à une pure convenance. Une mère exprimant une envie de césarienne peut réagir dans la continuité d’un traumatisme antérieur ou peut agir suite à une information biaisée. Le dialogue mère-soignant est primordial afin de comprendre la demande maternelle sous-jacente et pour y apporter la réponse la plus adaptée, qui n’est pas nécessairement une césarienne.

Cesarean delivery by maternal request: what is the mother really requesting?

Abstract

Cesarean delivery by maternal request is a loosely defined concept and includes many cases, which cannot be reduced to simple convenience. A mother stating that she wishes a cesarean may also do so because of a previous trauma, or because she received biased information. Dialog between the mother and the practitioner is then crucial to understand the mother’s true needs and define the best solution, which is not always a cesarean.
