Reasons For A C-Section

Labor dystocia is a common reason for doing a C-Section. Dr. Anna Suarez Davis, Obstetrician and Gynecologist at Baptist Hospital of Miami, explains it happens when the labor does not progress the way that doctors expect. According to her, another reason is abnormal or indeterminate fetal heart rate tracing. "Sometimes the heart rate is a little off or different than what we expect," she says.
