A new report shows that nearly 28% of babies delivered in the US in 2003 were via Caearean section, even though the health of mothers is better than ever thanks to awareness of the dangers of smoking and drinking alcohol during pregnancies.
Neither the report nor I can come up with a clear answer why. However, is it possible that mothers hoping to maintain their figures has a hand in such an increase?
We have all heard the term "child-bearing hips" that describes the natural widening (seperation) of the hip bones after natural child birth.
Could the rise in vanity be driving C-section deliveries to a matter of choice rather than a matter of medical necessity?
Personally, I don't see what concern it should be (providing there are no safety risks to mother or child) how one chooses to have their baby delivered. But, if vanity is driving the numbers, it kind of makes you scratch your head and contemplate our society.
With a decided focus on US National Security issues and a splash of Politics, The Word Unheard attempts to fill part of the void left in the wake of the dominant, credentialed mainstream media.
