Forceps delivery after two previous Caesarean sections.

Author information

Department of Obstetrics and Pathology of Pregnancy, Skubiszewski Medical University of Lublin.


Caesarean section is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in current obstetric practice. There are several reasons for this upward tendency, including well developed hemotherapy, anesthesia, antibiotic treatment and skilled doctors. Despite such risks as uterine rupture, necessity of blood transfusion or the possibility of the necessity of ending the delivery by means of surgery, it is possible, in justified cases, to attempt spontaneous labor. A decision jointly made by the patient and her doctor, based on careful consideration of benefits and risks, as well as positive attitude on the woman's part may lead to positive outcome of labor. Taking the above factors into account we have decided to present a study of a difficult, operational labor after two Caesarean sections.
