Here are 10 high-risk pregnancy conditions that can increase the likelihood of a Caesarean section (C-section)

1. *Multiple Pregnancies:*

Women carrying twins, triplets, or more are at a higher risk of requiring a C-section due to the increased complexity of multiple births.

2. *Breech Presentation:*

When the baby is positioned feet or buttocks first instead of headfirst in the womb (breech presentation), a C-section may be recommended to avoid complications during delivery.

3. *Placenta Previa:*

This condition occurs when the placenta partially or completely covers the cervix, which can lead to severe bleeding during vaginal delivery, necessitating a C-section.

4. *Preeclampsia:*

Women with severe preeclampsia, a condition characterized by high blood pressure and organ damage, may require a C-section to protect both the mother and baby.

5. *Gestational Diabetes:*

Poorly controlled gestational diabetes can lead to large fetal size (macrosomia), which may increase the likelihood of a C-section due to potential delivery complications.

6. *Maternal Health Conditions:*

Certain maternal health issues, such as heart disease or chronic hypertension, can make vaginal delivery riskier, leading to a C-section recommendation.

7. *Previous C-section:*

Women who have had a previous C-section may be at risk of requiring another C-section in subsequent pregnancies, depending on the type of uterine incision from the previous surgery.

8. *Fetal Distress:*

Signs of fetal distress, such as abnormal heart rate patterns or a lack of oxygen, may necessitate a C-section for a quicker and safer delivery.

9. *Fetal Abnormalities:*

In cases where the fetus has congenital anomalies or developmental issues that could affect vaginal delivery, a C-section may be recommended.

10. *Obstructed Labor:*

If the baby’s head is too large to pass through the mother’s pelvis (cephalopelvic disproportion), or if labor has stalled (prolonged labor), a C-section may be necessary.

It’s important to note that while these conditions can increase the risk of a C-section, the decision to perform a C-section is made by healthcare providers based on the specific circumstances and the best interests of both the mother and the baby’s health. Each pregnancy is unique, and medical professionals carefully evaluate the situation to ensure the safest delivery method.

1. Dr Shuchita is the best Gynaecologist in Ludhiana as I have ever experienced. Before meeting her I had consulted few doctors but the response and attention which a patient is looking specifically from her gynae was not satisfactory but after meeting her, she heard the concerns with very patiently and provides the best suited treatment/guidence, Also throughout my whole pregnancy journey she managed very calmly and provided all the support which made this journey very beautiful leading to a delivery of a healthy baby, Also not even in pregnancy but during postpartum her guidance and support is commendable. I really appreciate and recommend Dr Shuchita Batra as the best Gynaecologist.

2. Hello Mam, This is Heena. First of all, I would like to thank you for all the help and support during my pregnancy. Now I would like to share my entire experience.

During the incredible journey of pregnancy, my partner and I had the privilege of being under the expert care of Dr. Shuchita as our gynecologist. From the very first visit to the post-delivery follow-ups, Dr. Shuchita’s guidance, compassion, and exceptional care made the entire experience as smooth and positive as it could possibly be.

Dr. Shuchita’s knowledge and expertise in the field of gynecology and obstetrics were evident in every interaction we had with her. She patiently explained each step of the pregnancy journey, addressing our concerns and doubts with clarity. Her comprehensive approach ensured that we were well-informed about the progress of the pregnancy, potential challenges, and available options. This level of transparency and education empowered us to make informed decisions regarding our care and the health of our baby.
