When Is an Emergency Cesarean Section Required?

doctors checking woman during laborThere are circumstances where a c-section is the best alternative to keep you and/or your baby safe from harm. A C-section may be the only safe option if your baby is showing signs of distress during labor. An emergency C-section must be accomplished as soon as possible, and certainly within 30 minutes after the decision to deliver the baby is made. A c-section may also be the best option if you had a prior C-section and are experiencing a prolonged labor because of the increased risk for uterine rupture.
