About Birthrights: The Risk of Choice
Today in the United States, the most frequent surgical procedure is the C-section, the ‘caesarian’. It is an established practice, but the World Health Organization suggests it should not exceed 15% of all deliveries. In the US, the current figure is close to 30%. The growing debate about caesarian delivery questions its safety, necessity and viability.In this film we meet both sides, those who say it is a reasonable choice and those who argue that it is unnecessary, can be life threatening and is frequently done out of corporate expediency rather than medical need.How do women on the cusp of childbirth work through these options? The blessings of choice can be a curse of options.
