Procedure of Caesarean Section on Exclusive Request of Parturient


Author(s): Joanna Haberko

Carrying out a caesarean section on exclusive request of woman in labour without medical indications is from one hand health and life risk of parturient, from the other hand it is danger for a fetus, or both together; from the law point of view it should be qualified as carrying out totally unnecessary surgery procedure. Carrying out caesarean section by gynaecologist obstetrician in situation where there is no indications having, according to actual medical knowledge, justification in mother or fetus health is committed malpractice and may resulted in responsibility of rules of practise.
