Infections after C-Section higher than other operations


We all know having a baby is not easy. As your delivery date gets closer, the scary stories that you have heard about childbirth start running in your head. You hear that a way of avoiding the contractions is a Caesarean-section.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It suggests that 15,000 women a year in UK suffer an infection after their caesarean birth, the researchers said.
The study found that 9.6 per cent of women having caesarean section births developed an infection afterwards compared with just 6.6 per cent of women having a hysterectomy.

As one in four births are by caesarean, experts said the infections are a serious problem for both patients and add extra costs for the NHS.

Being overweight, aged under 20 and having the operation performed by a more junior doctor than a consultant increased the risk of infection even more.
The study investigated almost 400 infections in more than 4,000 caesarean births during 2009.

Cesarean birth is a surgery, and there are risks involved. The estimated risk of a woman dying after a cesarean birth is less than one in 2,500. The risk of death after a vaginal birth is less than one in 10,000.
