Procedural aspects of caesarean section

Babies born preterm are at increased risk of respiratory distress syndrome. One UK survey (n = 179,701) of babies born at 34 weeks of gestation or more reported 0.08% (149 babies) had respiratory distress requiring surfactant therapy. Of these babies, 24% (n = 36) were born at or after 37 weeks but 88% (n = 32) of these babies were born by planned caesarean section (CS). [evidence level 3]

Planned caesarean section

This chapter considers the evidence related to decisions about planned mode of birth. Other aspects of management of specific conditions or complications of pregnancy are not included because they are outside the scope of the guideline.
