The following factors are associated with an increased risk of emergency cesarean section in women who have had a previous cesarean section and are attempting vaginal birth: older maternal age, low maternal height, male gender of baby, labor induced by prostaglandin, not having had a previous vaginal birth, and later birth.
The potential benefits of primary elective cesarean section are often weighed against the risk that a scheduled cesarean section will bring the baby into the world prematurely, the risk of a prolonged post-delivery recovery, heavier interpartum and postpartum bleeding that could require transfusion with its attendant risks, and an increased risk of infection.
