Is cesarean delivery good or bad?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 11/24/2021

As with vaginal birth, there are advantages and disadvantages when a baby is delivered by cesarean section.

For example, one benefit of cesarean section is that the woman will not feel pain and the procedure is short, about 30 minutes. In addition, scheduled cesarean delivery allows the woman to know the exact day she will have her baby in her arms.

However, cesarean section is a surgical procedure and infections and/or damage to other organs may occur. In addition, in the case of wanting to breastfeed, it will be more complicated because oxytocin is not generated.
