    They don't want to damage their "cosita" by pushing a melon through it!

    I am wondering if DR women are even given a choice by doctors (I suspect they don't). Who is to blame then* ?

    * I admit, I don't know the answer. I really thought that it was close to 90% to be honest, instead of 58.1% as the article stated

    I admit, I don't know the answer, but it baffles me.
    It might have something to do with the fact that there are very few, if any midwives or berthing classes here in the DR. Perhaps it's cheaper for the insurance companies to do a caesarean rather than give full term care to expectant mothers.

    I thought it would be the opposite, since it will require the birthing mother to be hospitalized longer after a C-section. To be honest, I thought about being a way to limit the number of births/women (no sane women would have more than 3 c-sections), and possibly for the doctors to make more money per birth.

    I thought Brazil had this spot wrapped up, and I read about the practice there. Basically, the doc likes to have a schedule rather than all the late night births. Second, the women don't mind and it has the added benefit of easily tying their tubes if they are done having babies. It's a big reason that there has been a dramatic drop in fertility there among the middle and upper classes.

    ..Most births here are in public hospitals...The Doctors are paid per baby...and yes many have their tubes fixed without their knowledge, the number is normally 3 births, and the mother later wonders , what happened?...........

    I don't believe that at all do you have any evidence to support that claim?

    ....ooooh and I did spend the $1500 dollars on one of my wifes a few years back, and she never knew until she had the tests to confirm her tubes needed to be reattached...........
