The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists warns against Cesarean sections performed for non-medical reasons, such as convenience or fear of pain.

Risks of C-sections include longer recovery time and increased infection rates. Planned cesareans are not recommended for women who want more than one child due to risks of uterine rupture.

The U.S. has a high rate of births by C-section with more one million each year.
