A Caesarian section can be a challenging and stressful experience for many mothers, and that’s not surprising when the delivery is a Caesural section, or C-section.
For some women, C-sections can cause significant pain and bleeding and are difficult to return to labor, according to a new study from Johns Hopkins University.
The research team used data from more than 30,000 Caesarians to study the complications and outcomes of C-Section complications.
The researchers used data for more than 10,000 women who delivered Caesars in California and found that there were four times as many C- Section related complications as the overall Caesary experience in California, and nearly three times as likely to result in hospitalization for bleeding.
While the risk of hospitalization was relatively low in California during the study, it was significantly higher than the risk for complications from a Caessary in New Jersey, which is where most Caesaries are delivered.
The results of the study are published in the Journal of Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
