C-section warning

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is urging women to avoid c-sections for non-medical reasons.

Doctors say c-sections should only be done when necessary because of increased risk of longer recovery time, infection, and injury to the bladder and bowel.

Experts also warn women thinking about having another child should avoid cesareans because of the increased risk of needing a hysterectomy.
