ACOG calls for the prevention of Cesareans

February 20, 2014 mray Blog

ACOG (the professional group for most OBGYNs) released a consensus statement on the prevention of cesarean sections.  This well-written statement is sorely needed.  ACOG advocates obstetrical management that lowers  the c-section rate. The management it recommends has long been a part of our practice’s management of pregnancy.  So I can concur that it does result in a much lower c-section rate without increasing risk. If the obstetrical community adopts this management of labor, we will see a decrease in the cesarean rate.
