Turkey is suffering from an epidemic that seems to be spiraling out of control. Like many developing countries, as the level of wealth and standards of education have increased, there has been a concomitant reluctance to give birth naturally and a staggering rise in the number of Caesarean section births. According to Health Ministry data, 288,000 of the total 706,000 births in Turkey were through C-section operations in 2006, while 251,000 of the 766,000 births in 2007 were C-sections.

I don´t understand why women would take the risk of infections after a C-section. If they want to give birth painless, why not just epidural anaesthetics?

Assuming that C-section is painless is wrong! True, the 45 minutes of the surgery is painless (with the exception of a needle down your spine) but the recovery is disasterous. I hope they understand that the next day they´ll have to get up and take care of their newborn. Also, the cather will be removed and they´ll have to go to the lavatory although the pain will be immense. Getting up will make them feel like their wound is about to break open and this shall continue for about a week. The next week will still be painful and although painkillers do help, it will take about six weeks to function normally (so was I told as myself I´m in week four). I wouldn´t know for sure but I reckon natural delivery is painful for a shorter period of time.

yep looks like they will live the trend from all over the world here too...they dont think about pain after Caesarean...but you must think too...if you had 1 time dangerous birth, they wont let you easily born in normal way again... if you had 1 time Caesarean, they will say you its too dangerous get the baby in normal way now and they will say you must get Caesarean again...

This non-medical "trend" for C-Sections makes me so angry.  It is selfish, expensive and indulgent to have your baby by choice this way.  Many people don´t realise the risk they are taking with their baby.   Contractions in a normal birth are there for a reason and benefit the baby physically in numerous ways, including breathing.  It is extremely traumatic for a baby to be suddenly grabbed out of the womb, with no warning.

 

My sister works in a special care baby unit and they are horrified at the increase in caesarean births and the knock on affect of babies being rushed down to their specialised unit for treatment.  

 

The majority of the non-medical caesareans are for vanity and sexual reasons only (to keep their vaginal muscles tight) and was started by celebrities - perhaps they are just too lazy to do their pelvic floor exercises...

As far as I can see, it doesn´t say anything as to the reasons for the high occurence of C-sections.

I have two close friends who both recently had C-sections for very other reasons than the article states. They both live in a rural area and were indeed very afraid of "giving birth" in this unnatural way. Sometimes it´s the doctor´s request and that should be taken into considderation before jumping to conclusions.

 I made it very clear that I was talking about non-medical c-sections...

 My comment was not directed toward you, it was just a general clarification.

I think that worrying about these kinds of problems is indulgent in itself. And... sexuality is an important part of life, you know?
