Future Childbearing Less Likely after Cesarean Deliveries: Feinberg School of Medicine: Northwestern University
“It is very important to consider the size of the family that a woman
wants when making any elective decisions about how to deliver,” said
first author Lisa Masinter, MD, MPH, a fellow at the Center for Healthcare Studies.
“Clearly in an emergency the health of the mother and her child take
precedence. But if a woman wants a large family, she should know that
having a cesarean delivery may limit that possibility.”
