Emergency Cesarean

In an emergency, there may not be enough time to discuss fully the options of a cesarean section. If vaginal delivery poses significant risks to your own or your baby’s health, the midwife or doctor will decide if a cesarean section is the safest option.

Reasons for needing an emergency Cesarean include:

  • your unborn baby is not getting enough oxygen and a vaginal delivery will take too long and put your baby at risk
  • your labour is not progressing despite your efforts and fails to move the baby sufficiently and quickly down the birth canal (from the womb through to the vagina), causing distress to you and your baby. (dystocia)
  • your labour has been induced (brought on) for a medical reason but the methods used are failing to produce contractions effective enough to lead to a vaginal delivery.
  • you have vaginal bleeding during your labour.

In some emergency situations, a baby may need to be delivered very quickly, even within half an hour. In such emergencies, a caesarean section can be the safest way to protect both you and your baby.
