AB  - OBJECTIVE: To assess obstetricians' perceptions surrounding cesarean delivery
      rates in Turkey. METHODS: The present cross-sectional descriptive study was
      performed between May 1 and June 30, 2016. Practicing obstetricians with contact 
      details known by the researchers and those attending a conference in Turkey were 
      asked to complete a self-administered questionnaire that collected demographic
      data and information on participants' opinions, beliefs, knowledge, attitudes,
      and practices related to cesarean delivery. RESULTS: There were 100 obstetricians
      who responded to the survey. Awareness of high cesarean delivery rates was
      reported by 96 (96%) participants and 95 (95%) respondents said they were
      supportive of efforts to reduce it. There were 60 (60%), 83 (83%), and 100 (100%)
      participants aware of associations between high cesarean delivery rates and
      increased maternal and infant mortality; increased risk of uterine rupture; and
      increased risk of placenta previa, placenta accreta, and emergency cesarean
      hysterectomy, respectively. The most commonly reported reason for high cesarean
      delivery rates was high compensation costs during medical litigation legal
      proceedings, reported by all 100 (100%) participants. CONCLUSION: Participants
      were generally aware of the risks associated with high cesarean delivery rates.
      The results suggest that the greatest concern among obstetricians who perform
      cesarean deliveries was malpractice litigation.
