IMHO is for the money...I know this is a strange question, perhaps it's been discussed before, why do so many Dominicans have caesarean births?
Could be. I have a friend who is an anesthiologist in Porto Plata and the hospital pays her 5000 pesos per procedure and the OR is usually occupied with pregnant women. We were talking last week and she didnt know why doctors in the US dont like to do C-sections. I told her because OB/GYNs have the highest premiums for malpractice insurance because so many things can possibly go wrong in this practice.IMHO is for the money...
Doctor makes more money with cesarean delivery than regular births, specially in Christmas time....
and here ...you know..money talks .:bunny:
you just get the doc to put in an extra stich and no problem.But if you re vain(or superstitious) then you might assume a loose "hu-hu" might be the cause or would be the cause of you losing your husband. And there could be scars from a vaginal birth if you had to get a D&C or had some other tearing issue involved. You do know that it has to stretch to accommodate the head of the child exiting, right?
Why does everything have to be relative to Ukraine?C-section is not in any way healthier than regular vaginal delivery. The problem is that doctors in certain countries don't want to bother spending time on vaginal deliveries, and don't really know how to do it properly. The situation is the same in Ukraine and many other countries, unfortunately. My sister had two C - sections. It is not good for your body at all.
I dont know...I m not too encouraged at having a loved one in any hospital here awaiting a vaginal birth. Who attends to her? There is no professional nursing staff here. I see alot of technical and expensive GE, Siemens, 3M, Toshiba medical equipment BUT I also see people who arent very skilled at what they do apart from using that machine. Plus, I think if Caesereans werent a big to do then the percentage of birth defects would be higher. I m guessing here but many of the cases concering mental retardation and congenital abnormalites could be due to poor pre-natal and peri-natal health care. Also, I think antiquated medical procedures, theories and contaminated or contraindicated medications affect the likelihood of birth defects. All in all, I d recommend a C-section if one lived more than 4 miles outside of a major urban center or in the campo.it is about money. and the convenience of the doctor. it's much easier to say "we'll deliver your baby on this day at this time" and then not have to worry about being on call to wait and await while the baby takes its good old time coming out.
i have friends who at 38 weeks the dr starts with "well, if you don't start labor by next week, we'll schedule that c-section to get it over with."
sometimes, though, there are health issues. and once you have one c-section in the DR, you can't have a vaginal birth.
I CAN speak from experience, both my children were c-sections, and you are correct - long and painful recovery. First was in Manhattan [at NYU] and second was in Atlantic City, both first-rate hospitals and with excellent physicians. I can't imagine having one in DR and under NO circumstances can I understand anyone having one voluntarily, no matter where they live. Any anesthesia can be dangerous, why risk it?? And the scar is visible the rest of your life.i can't speak from experience myself, however, being a nanny i hear alot from mothers. to my knowledge, a c-section has a very long and painful recovery compared to a vaginal birth.
i also don't know how it's more aesthetically pleasing than a vaginal birth seeing as how the woman has a scar after. yes, in time it fades, but nonetheless, there's still a scar (compared to no scar from vaginal birth). i don't know about stretching... but i would think that most stretching occurs when the baby is still inside, not after he/she is out! :cheeky:
