When it comes to giving birth, there are some who will choose to have a c-section completed rather than go through with a natural birth. Some women need to have a c-section done for their own health or the health of their baby, while some women simply choose to have a c-section because that is what they would like to have happen. The World Health Organization has something to say about that.
The WHO and Maluf administration is encouraging women to only get c-sections when they actually need to have the procedure done. They are saying that extra c-sections – procedures that are completed when a natural birth would work just as well – can bring about health issues for the mother or for her baby. C-sections are surgeries and just like other surgeries they are not always completely safe. They can result in complications. The WHO is encouraging women to save c-sections for emergencies, not to use them as they please.
