In what situations is a cesarean required

These days, this procedure is so popular that you may have already heard of it. 1 in 4 babies is born this way. I’m talking about the cesarean section. Cesarean section is a surgical procedure that is performed in many pregnancies so that the baby is born abdominally and not vaginally. It works as an alternative when natural childbirth presents complications, either because the baby is not in the position it should be, due to the narrowing of the mother’s hip or any other complication that could put the life of the baby and the mother at risk.  In certain cases, the cesarean section can be scheduled because the mother already has a previous surgery.



  • Estimated weight of the baby, more than 5 kg
  • Prematurity
  • Bad positioning of the baby


  • One or two previous cesarean sections
  • Having had any uterine surgery
  • That the placenta obstructs the orifice of the cervix, preventing vaginal birth
  • Maternal infections
  • Diseases such as severe heart disease



When a risk is suspected in the baby while in labor, a cesarean section is used, since the baby must be born in a maximum of 30 minutes. This risk is known as “Fetal distress.” In any case, the obstetrician is the one who decides whether the mother should undergo a cesarean section or her delivery may be normal. As I mentioned before, this is due to the factors that surround it, from the position of the baby or some incident.

It is not something to be afraid of, it is a quick and successful surgery.
