When is a cesarean section used in Israeli clinics?
A cesarean section is a surgical operation in which the baby is removed from the mother's uterus through an incision made in the abdomen. This technique is used by obstetricians in Israeli clinics if the patient has contraindications for childbirth through physiologically natural ways.
Considering that Israeli medicine is one of the most developed in the world, thousands of women prefer to give birth in clinics of this country. And most often, the services of Israeli obstetricians are resorted to by expectant mothers, whose childbirth can proceed with a certain risk. For this reason, almost every fifth childbirth accepted by Israeli obstetricians occurs with the use of a caesarean section - emergency or planned.
The decision on a planned cesarean section is taken by Israeli specialists, as a rule, during a consultation with the consent of the woman in labor. If specialists have reason to believe that the operation will be less risky for the woman in labor and the baby than natural childbirth, then doctors insist on a planned caesarean section. This usually applies to multiple pregnancies, women in labor with an excessively narrow pelvis, in the case of a breech presentation of the fetus, or if the baby is very large (over 4 kg).
A planned cesarean section is also used if the woman in labor has pathologies incompatible with the stressful condition that causes natural childbirth (cardiovascular diseases, retinal detachment, etc.). On an emergency basis, the operation begins already during childbirth, for example, in case of fetal distress or stoppage of the birth process.
