Caesarean section is delivery of the baby through the abdominal route by making an incision on the uterine wall. Many papers have been published stating that the ideal caesarean rate should be between 10% and 15%. Despite this, both developing and developed countries are witnessing a tremendous increase in caesarean rate. The increase in caesarean rate can be attributed to the reluctance of obstetricians towards VBAC and giving operative vaginal delivery a try. However, there is no denying that caesarean sections when indicated significantly reduce maternal and foetal morbidity and mortality. Caesarean section does expose a woman to additional surgical and anaesthesia risks as compared to the physiological normal delivery. So, every caesarean section should be indicated, and the risks and benefits should be carefully evaluated.
