Doctors Warn Of C-Section ‘ Epidemic ’ As Global Rates Double
(CBS Local) — Caesarean section birth rates have nearly doubled in two decades worldwide, even reaching “epidemic” proportions in some countries, doctors warned Friday.

C-Sections Have Nearly Doubled Since 2000. That Isn ’t Necessarily A Good Thing
Nearly twice as many babies were born via caesarean sections (C-sections) in 2015 as in 2000, a new report says.

In 2000, 16 million babies were delivered by C-section, accounting for 12% of live births. The uptick in C-sections — and the persistent disparities in where they’re performed — points to two connected trends, the authors write. On one hand, the growth signifies that more women are giving birth under medical...
