In some Newton births, there are reasons why the medical staff will decide upon a Cesarean section. While the procedure is common, there are still dangers with it to both the mother and the child. In some cases, the decision to have the procedure is elective. In others, the medical staff feels it is necessary. The commonness of the procedure does not eliminate all dangers of birth injuries and damage to the mother. It is imperative that parents understand the potential risks of a C-section during the delivery process.
It can take a longer time for the mother to recover from the C-section than from a normal birth. There are dangers to the newborn when this procedure is done. The baby might experience breathing problems. It has been found that a baby born via C-section is more likely to have what is known as transient tachypnea. This is when the baby breathes abnormally fast in the first days after he or she was born.
